We founded OSMO to create an environment where ideas could grow into impactful projects.
Brands and their products and services are parts of an ecosystem, which also includes consumers they want to connect with and goals they want to achieve.
Our mission is to support companies through this complex network, providing meaningful, enjoyable collaboration which helps them challenge the status quo and build value in their environment. Through a holistic approach we enable firms to not only navigate their ecosystem, but shape its future.
The value in certainties is their constant requirement to be shared and questioned. Being open to new perspectives allows us to enrich and develop heritage thinking and build new knowledge.
Limitations can either be perceived or actual. Perceived limitations we don’t bother with. We always assume something can be done unless we know that it can’t. As for actual limitations, we believe in pushing them as far as they can go.
We believe in getting our hands dirty. Theory and research are core to what we do but the joy of our work comes through trying, failing, and trying again.
Once we’ve reached one goal we look straight ahead to the next one. There’s no point sitting and admiring achievements. How we get from one point to another is what excites us.
If we were always happy, happiness itself would have no value. It’s for precisely this reason that pursuing it is so stimulating.
Based in design-orientated thinking, we have created a methodological framework which we adopt when collaborating with our clients. This framework is nurtured over time but its key components remain solid.
Our first step is not to try and figure out all the answers, but to concentrate on asking the right questions. We do this by fully engaging with your culture - hosting workshops and conducting thorough industry research. We then clarify our goals and work with you to create a knowledge base from which we can make informed future decisions.
All of our work is informed by a core strategy, allowing us to define clear roadmaps within complex scenarios. Once establishing goals together, we present you with an ambitious yet feasible action plan which takes multiple perspectives into account. We create a strategy which enables you and your team to take ownership of new tools and move things forward when the time is right. We hope that you’ll want us involved in future projects, but ultimately, it’s in your hands.
Whether we’re working on a rebranding, a new product or a service model, we always use an iterative design process. This approach ensures a high-quality, polished result, no matter the project. We never lose sight of the fact that each deliverable is part a complex ecosystem, in which all elements have a functional role and must work harmoniously to create impact.
In order to truly visualise the world of tomorrow we need to think about how the children of today grow up. Any projects which allow us to research this area further would be highly interesting to our whole team.
We feel an affinity towards sport as we share a lot of the same values: interaction, play, inventiveness, team spirit, relationship-building. Sport is composed of challenges and cracking challenges is where our passion lies.
Among all public services, transport plays one of the most fundamental roles in determining quality of life in large and small cities. We'd love to work on interdisciplinary projects in this field.
We like working on projects which allow people to have more control over their own lives, especially if it is a product or service which is planned to be used long-term. FinTech projects are often some of the best examples of this.
