Established in 2004, thinkpublic was the UK's first social design agency 

Our founder, Deborah Szebeko, was inspired to start the agency after witnessing the need for involving people in co-designing services, communications, and change during her volunteer work at Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.

"We are driven by our passion to creatively engage and involve people in designing services, systems, and products that positively impact society and the wider planet. This passion has been at the heart of thinkpublic's work since the very beginning."
