We bring people together to think creatively about building better human experiences. We believe that fresh, curated perspectives, deliberate process, and tools are fundamental to helping teams think up. Combining creativity with human understanding, our approach carefully considers the context, the most appropriate techniques, activities and stimulus to solve challenges with collective intelligence.
We are passionate about nurturing creative imagination with catalyst creativity techniques
When a situation requires creative thinking, teams increasingly turn to group processes involving brainstorming, however outputs may be disappointing if each individual’s creative potential is not activated.
Taking inspiration from the creator of brainstorming, Alex Osborn, and recent studies on effective group and individual creativity methods, we explore how process, framing, filters, and environment help overcome the roadblocks to creativity.
Understanding more about ourselves and others better equips teams to solve problems creatively
The combined thinking energy of a team united in one purpose is more potent than the individual efforts of many people. The FourSight® Thinking Profile reveals our own level of preference for each of the four types of thinking involved in creative problem solving – clarifying, ideating, developing and implementing. Knowing where we gain and lose energy, and appreciating the differences in others, is the foundation for inclusive innovation.
Innovation is about making things work better for people. It starts with provocative human truths and real stories
We believe in understanding human behaviour deeply. Not vague statements of customer need, but universal truths about what drives us forward, what holds us back, and the everyday lived experiences filled with hope and frustration.

Abhishek Mathur, Director Human Resource, Space Matrix
It was a pleasure working with Lara. She is an expert in Design thinking and helped us curate a program from scratch on creative problem solving for our Regional design teams. Apart from being a great facilitator, we saw her using design thinking principles in action while she was working with the team to create a program that really resonated with the participants. We have done 2 such workshops, and plan to take it further down within the organization. By providing frameworks and toolkits to the participants, we have been able to build the right capabilities within our teams and they have been successful in winning more business, using these new skill sets. I look forward to partnering with Lara on many other projects as well!
