We Are Open is a group of digitally savvy professionals who see big pictures and complex systems. We also do fake accents, impromptu guitar solos, gardening, and we have a healthy affinity for cheese. Our members truly believe in the power of collective action and the mindset shifts required to make collectivism a reality.
We run ‘thinkathons’, design sprints, focus events, polls and surveys to develop solutions. We use a collaborative, visual design thinking process, to gather ideas and thoughts from across a community. We develop personas, gain insights into the wants and needs of stakeholders and develop a clear view of where people are, to inform where they might go next. We create outputs in text and visual form, to create narratives for complex ideas, strategy, project initiation, roadmapping and more.
