Design & Decide

Our DesignSessions are large group collaborative sessions that leverage design-thinking. They follow a non-linear flow – with parallel processing – guided by previously agreed objectives. Each session is carefully crafted to ensure we are facilitating stakeholders on a well-managed journey that continuously inspires and stimulates stakeholder creativity and cohesion, ultimately resulting in successful, workable solutions.

Innovation Arts’ DesignSessions are bespoke to each organisation and each challenge and are meticulously prepared in advance with the client based on new insights, new research and agreed objectives. Our process features four key principles:

1: Applied Design Thinking: Through the creation and use of models, underpinned by visualisation, we are able to create, iterate and test ideas until we reach the ideal solution.

2: Whole System Facilitation: Our highly skilled team of strategists, management consultants, designers, advertisers, branding communications experts and artists utilise proven design methods and models that draw on learnings from architecture, business, education, psychology, technology and more.

3. Flexible Physical Environment: We develop the right environment to support an organisation’s bespoke collaborative process. This could be on or off site depending on the number of stakeholders and the availability and suitability of existing space.

4: ‘Critical’ Stakeholders: Many organisational decisions fail to involve one or more critically important stakeholders during its definition and planning. The resulting problems are easily predictable: requirements conflicts and rework, at a minimum; and sometimes more dire consequences. In bringing together large numbers of stakeholders, we simply address this risk head-on.

Participants leave our DesignSessions with clarity, momentum and actionable delivery plans.

Think & Visualise

In a world where attention is becoming scarce, communications must be visual in order to be compelling, as well as to compete with the massive amount of information available to us at any given moment.

We use visual models when complexity needs to be communicated. By making thinking visual, you can communicate across cultures, hierarchies and specific domains. Thus working on a complex problem is made possible, by using many minds that build on each other.

We do this in person, remotely, as a one off, or over a number of working sessions, depending on your needs. We work with our clients to break down complex ideas, and synthesize them into something meaningful, helping them to present data, information and knowledge in a fun and highly engaging way. Our Innovation Artists can help to create your Visual Collateral. We can capture your conversations live through Graphic Recording and create visual communications from infographics, rich pictures and animations, to presentations, training tools and websites. We can bring your conference or event to life, add an extra dimension to your workshop, or we can create engagement in public spaces around your content.

Engage & Inspire

Engage & Inspire turns the conversations and plans that you and your teams worked hard to develop into tangible assets such as branding and visual identities, new positioning, websites, newsletters, content pieces or a change to your overall suite of marketing tools.  As well as designing a range of communication techniques that are right for your organisation, we also design a robust dissemination program to ensure the new principles developed during your DesignSessions gain traction and impact with your stakeholders.

No more briefings, no more lengthy introductory sessions, no more set-up activities…. We already have a handle on your business and can start creating your story and developing the narrative immediately.

Engage & Inspire is a flexible option.  We can either continue naturally from your DesignSessions through into Engage & Inspire planning, or we are well placed to pick up the ball if you’re looking for a stand-alone solution to a branding or a brand communication issue.  This may be an analytical piece of work around your brand’s positioning, language or tone of voice, or perhaps a discreet design project to refresh your brand and visual identity.  The process is the same, and we are happy to respond to a brief.  If there’s no brief, then we will work with you to develop a brief that you are happy with.

Our focus is always on designing solutions that make a real impact.  Experience dictates that we can achieve the best outcome for you by stimulating productive thinking through collaborative engagement techniques, co-design, play and visual activities.
