We're into design because we're into people. There's a lot of talk about design thinking as a work process and although it has always been the framework for developing our strategy and creative we also believe it needs to function hand in glove with community engagement. When the community can engage it forces good design to be responsive, to change, to face emerging ideas, meet new challenges and mobilise opportunity.
The story behind our work space is essentially a real expression of this concept. We shared the idea with other smart people who were also up for ideas. Together we designed and adapted an empty mechanics warehouse on the city fringe into a dynamic cafe with awesome coffee, design studios, specialist art gallery and a flexible event space. It is equal parts an expression of our thinking and an experiment in action. When we discover something that doesn't work, we just re-design it.
