The Aha! Process
Co-designed + Personalised + Evidence-based
Discovery via Research - gathering, collating & analysing data - viewing the challenge from an objective lens - often an observation of what's missing from the Client's current collection
Identifying & defining the problem - mapping the customer journey - magnifying the "one key moment" - wearing varieties of thinking 'hats' - studying the problem through varied lenses and perspectives
Creative spark - generating ideas, inspired by past work - latest trends, dissociated happenings, inside and outside the spaceship, quantity over judgement
Creative mindset meets Leonardo Da Vinci's toolkit e.g. being Curious, embracing Ambiguity etc.; Systemic thinking + System mapping; Incubation & the Relaxation response
evaluating feasibility, strengths and weaknesses - Narrowing down options - rapid, realistic prototyping - audiences test prototypes in realistic contexts
Work to continuously improve, refine and tweak - balancing the juggle - alignment between product hypotheses + business objectives + audience feedback

Z.E.N (zero emissions network)
An intelligent mobility & clean air project
Our flagship (& debut) project as an Innovation Studio has been leading the design and development of the Z.E.N (zero emissions network) digital platform. This is a dynamic website and CMS (content management system) enabling 1000+ businesses across the London boroughs of Hackney, Islington and Tower Hamlets access Offers & Grants that enable them to operate “cheaper, cleaner, greener”.
The project is jointly funded and directed by the G.L.A (Greater London Authority), Tfl (Transport for London) and the Mayor of London’s Air Quality fund.

The website was launched on Valentine's day 2017 and has won praise from both member businesses and Local Government for its User interface and flexible, modular CMS (content management system).
