Yand creates collaborations, networks, tools and services with a focus on all the parts within. We explore, design, unite, provoke, research in a radically open and collaborative way. Design becomes accessible to non-designers as an understandable, empowering tool. Yand is industry agnostic, which leads to diverse projects. We are translators between various partners and use design as a language. Therefore, people with different skills are equally involved in co-creation. New futures are developed from the critical perspective of sustainability, people-centredness and cultural embeddedness.
