is small and mighty

We're are a Strategic Design Agency. Here's what we mean by that...

Strategic

Think big picture.
Think ahead.

A well-baked idea takes on a life. We love a moment of brilliance, but we understand that for an idea to sustain and grow, it needs to respond to ever changing real world conditions. We locate ideas within larger ecosystems. We design in the present, and for the future.

Design

Practical.
Sustainable.
Thoughtful.

We craft memorable experiences that harmonize customer needs, operational efficiencies, business priorities, and organizational goals. We build things that create value continually, for all stakeholders: business and people alike.

Agency

Think.
Make.
Manage.

Our backgrounds are diverse, and our capabilities are many. We are a multi-disciplinary team that envisions opportunities and crafts the tangible, and the intangible. We deploy a robust network of collaborators from all quarters to bring ideas to life. We manage everything it takes to get sh*t done.

Scaling & Roll-outs

Strategic expansion is key to business success. We bake scalability into experience design from the get go, so that when the time comes, the business may expand its footprint as rapidly as its customer base grows.

Organizational Design & Capacity Building

An organization, first and foremost, is made up of people. For the organization to be successful, the people who make it must thrive, in alignment with its objectives.

What we do..

OS | 01

We're comfortable being uncomfortable

The optimal solutions don't come from the simplest problems.

We accept any challenge, no matter the size.

At times like these we are in our element. Openshop believes design is a tool for evolution.

We know change is constant, our solutions are flexible, unique and innovative.

OS | 02

Failure is part of success

We believe it's an important part of the process.

Fail early, fail fast, fail frequently.

Are Openshops projects failures? Certainly not. By employing an iterative process in the beginning, we avoid big problems down the line. This helps us deliver solid, resilient solutions. Plus it's kind of fun.

OS | 03

We love what we do.

But we also love how we do it.

Deep play: We put play to work as a way to frame challenges, discover new perspectives and foster creativity.

Do we have more Lego in our office than most? Maybe. We believe there is a joy to work, to problem solving that can be enjoyed on many levels. We deliver exceptional work and, boy, do we have fun doing it.
