"If we don't study the world, we don't always know how or what to design."

Research informs all of our work. We apply our research across all sectors to ensure you benefit from our latest findings and keep ahead of future trends. Learn more about design research and our research approach...

We believe in an open source information community and that’s why we not only present our findings at conferences but also share our published research.
