What WE do

We Work With a broad range of partners, communities and clients. 

Our clients, partners and communities range from municipalities to institutions and triple bottom line businesses. They are part of our "WE." All of us are grappling with entangled challenges, which we seek to comprehensively address and navigate through shared value objectives, innovative projects and strategic design. At DTW, we design effective collaborative processes to incubate new ventures, strategies, technologies & services that together co-create an ecosystem of social change.

About our process

By using design-led capacities we redefine how big picture systemic challenges are approached, identify opportunities for action, and co-design more holistic and resilient strategies centered on positive social change.

We believe that the more we co-operate, co-create and co-produce, the more equitable, effective and meaningful our impact will become.
