our mission is to creatively solve complex social challenges
thinkpublic was the first social design agency, established in 2004. The inspiration to start thinkpublic came after Deborah Szebeko volunteered at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. She experienced first-hand the impact design can have on changing lives.
over the years we’ve developed a creative and people-centred approach to designing services and social ventures, that make a positive difference in the world.
now our passionate, creative team of entrepreneurial designers, researchers, strategists and marketeers bring a blend of social and private sector experience with extensive knowledge of business, production and marketing.
as well as a co-design approach, we use experiential methods to entertain and engage communities whilst also delivering new services and ventures.
Work on projects that we believe will make a positive difference, ultimately making things happen
Building trusted & production relationships through co-creation
Putting creativity & engagement at the heart of what we do
Balance the social & business impact
