Designing a purpose-driven agency

There are many challenges facing both our society and the planet. Design is a powerful tool to educate, communicate and influence. How might we design a studio guided by values, focused on outcomes, and driven to impact the world we live in.

It takes more than changing your value proposition. It requires rethinking how you do business and who you work with. This underpinned with a sustainable business model.

This masterclass looks at how to articulate your unique values and principles. It provides practical tools to integrate them into your business and culture. It provides ways to identify who your clients and audience are. Covered are opportunities to hold your business accountable and measure your impact. The aim is to create a purpose-driven business – one that delivers positive outcomes while being financially sustainable.

Why bother?

Why now?
