The greatest change in our lives is the new power of users. All our work is built on exceptional insight into their changing emotions and needs. We must understand change and embrace it.

for forward-looking businesses
Modern businesses need to adapt to change. Change can be an evolution or a radical leap forward. It can be rapid but it must always be effective. You need sound strategy to know where to concentrate your efforts in complex, fragmented markets. We use service design methodologies and our expertise covers all sectors and marketing disciplines. Our ultimate goal is to help you deliver sustainable value and growth.
We believe that great design needs insight and strategy to drive it, regardless of technology, channel or context. Sometimes our solutions are simple. Sometimes they are multifaceted, complex. Realization can be verbal or visual, digital or physical. We create award-winning design that transforms the user experience and changes behaviour.

Quickly putting words into action
A good brand strategy means nothing if it cannot be transformed into everyday actions. Brand Camp is an inspiring coaching course featuring contact training and additional tasks to help teams develop their projects on the basis of feedback and learn to utilise service design tools in their work. The coaching course is for a total of five teams of three to eight members who pitch their projects to a wider audience at the final gala. Brand Camp shapes development projects that are already underway, making them more user-oriented and better integrated into the brand.For more information email Tiina Toivola Watch the Helsinki Brand Camp video
