Hello.

More groups are adopting design thinking as a way of working. And why not? It's engaging and effective. But it can be disillusioning when the results you expect aren't forthcoming.

We are OpenEye.

We're a service design firm for social change focusing on schools and communities.

We believe difficult challenges can be solved through design thinking. Our reason for being is to coach those who want to make positive change through design thinking. Our success has been driven by your passion for improving the world.

Our value? We're experienced service designers, educators, researchers, and coaches who have seen and solved the cultural, implementation, and organizational challenges which thwart design thinking in schools and communities.

We're the x-ray vision specs on your initiative.

Try us on.
