HOW IT ALL STARTED
ATÖLYE started as an academic spin-off project with ties to Stanford University’s d.school and New York University’s Tisch ITP, hence acquiring a strong inclination towards strategic design with a social impact mindset. Since 2013, ATÖLYE has traversed through a journey of creating community-driven approaches to design and innovation.
Today, with a core team of over 60 multidisciplinary designers and creatives and a surrounding community of over 140 creatives, we tackle design challenges across many sectors on multiple scales. Through our fluid system, with a clear intent of transdisciplinarity, we love addressing wicked problems that deal with shifting paradigms, stakeholder complexity, and emergent processes.
Our Team and Community
We are a dynamic and multidisciplinary team nested within a wider creative network. Our team is made up of individuals with unique skill sets and aspirations, developing and progressing through collaboration and the wider creative network to which we belong.
