ABOUT US

SMARTER & BETTER. 
THIS IS HOW WE DO IT. 

OUR STORY

Our goal is to make creativity and innovation accessible for everyone!

We are a team of creative thinkers who believe anyone can innovate. However, not everyone has access to specialist designers who can define and assist with understanding problems and use industry standard techniques to develop solutions.​

We developed SparkTank to overcome many of the limitations of classical face-to-face brainstorming. Our designers have studied and researched creativity and developed this tool to remove problems such as groupthink and to also minimise cognitive bias that creates barriers for creativity. The tool also maximises several critical elements in creativity including diversity, improvisation and chance.

We also want to make the process fun. You can earn points by being an innovator and sharing your ideas. The more ideas you create, the higher your innovator status.
