Where Should We Go Next?

More than ever before, many organisations in the UK and around the world are recognising the importance of digital innovation, resilience and sustainability to the future of their place (or their business). We are a fairly small team but “generosity” is one of our Values and we try to say “yes” more often than “no” when people ask for help. We have helped city leaders, businesses and organisations across the UK, from Inverness to Kent and internationally, including - Canada, China, France, Holland, Poland,Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Taiwan and the US. All places (and not only cities) can benefit from Digital and Sustainable placemaking. If you’d like to explore how we can work together, get in touch.
