The world's leading design studios are offering free creative workshops for coronavirus-hit companies
The coronavirus is reframing the way we think, live and work. Companies large and small are facing challenges that they’ve never encountered before, with long term visions replaced by short term adaptions. In an attempt to face these issues head-on and open up new opportunities, creative agency matchmaker ASK US FOR IDEAS (AUFI) has launched Now Needs New.
The programme brings together a collection of the world’s leading design studios, who are offering their support to businesses in need by donating their time, resources, expertise and experience in the form of free creative strategy workshops. The studios include Accept & Proceed, Base, Character, Koto, Made Thought, Otherway, Two Times Elliott and more.
AUFI are particularly keen to hear from businesses that have met new-found hurdles during the coronavirus crisis and are in need of creative counsel. The AUFI team will jump on a call with the business, listening to all of their challenges, before recommending a design studio from their handpicked network. The chosen studio will lead up to three workshops with the company, helping them to explore new strategies and make the most of creative opportunities.
Nick Bell, AUFI co-founder, adds: “The future has been pulled out from under us like a rug and we need to adapt. Now is the time for pivoting strategies and to re-evaluate how you engage with customers. Doing nothing is not an option.
