Hi, we're Nutshell.
We put design thinking to work.


Innovation doesn't happen in a workshop.

Or a lab, or a (sorrynotsorry) design sprint. Before the whiteboard ink is barely dry, most teams walk straight back into business as usual, leaving behind methods and tools that have the power to transform the way they work.

Innovation actually happens when teams keep learning and trying new things long after the last brittle Post-it floats to the ground. It happens in the day-to-day interactions and decisions that keep evolving an idea as it becomes a part of the core business.

It’s not the outcome of a process, it’s the outcome of behavior change.


That's why we're doing things differently.


Nutshell is part design strategist and part design coach.

Our approach focuses as much on how people work as it does on understanding the brand, business, and customer experience.

As strategists, we partner with you to frame your challenges, lead insight discovery through design research and co-creation, define opportunity spaces, and ultimately align your teams to a shared vision.

As coaches, we show teams how strategic design tools fit into their everyday work, equipping them with the skillsets and mindsets to help innovation thrive in your organization.
