The future is designed by people.

Kreatives is a design strategy company on a mission to push the world forward. We collaborate with progressive organizations to design and innovate for the changing needs of tomorrow. From design research all the way to launch, across all industries, our work impacts areas such as brand, strategy, product, service, and experience - moving organizations and people forward. 

Our studio is located in Munich and we work on ambitious projects around the world. We’re independent. Small and mighty. Entrepreneurial and design-driven. Some even say, we’re changing the world, one project at a time. 

 
 

Why we get up in the morning. 

Today is the most important day. The most important day to drive the necessary change to how we live, how we run our organizations, and how we work together.

The vision is to design a future we all want to live in. It's simple but complexity lies in how we get there. We wake up every day, fueling and firing up, to push the world forward. Whatever it takes. It’s time to change the conversation and experience in areas such as food, mobility, energy, education, cities, communities, climate, health, money, entertainment, sustainability, and our lives. This is just the start. The possibilities are limitless.

Let’s get to work.

The values that drive us.

 
 

People First.
People are the core of what we do. We take a human-centered approach to making things better, for everyone. 

Give A Damn. 
Care. We’re not afraid to try new things, break the current mindsets, push boundaries, or do what others say can’t be done. 

Better Together. 
Nothing great was ever achieved alone. We believe collaboration and diversity is the secret for shaping a future we all love.

 
 

Take Action.
It takes courage to create something new and meaningful. We’re at our best when we can roll up our sleeves - exploring, designing, making, experimenting, and tackling challenges that matter. 

 

 

Start to Finish.
No project too big or too small. We’re strategically ambitious and resilient. We just get shit done!

Once upon a time…

Kreatives_Story_Website-1.jpg

A San Franciscan State of Mind

We started Kreatives with the belief that we can change the world. 

Everything around us is designed and together we can shape the future. We met in San Francisco while completing our Design MBA (DMBA) at the California College of the Arts. The DMBA is at the forefront and first in the world to recognize the value and role of design in business. We’re not alone, our friends are driving change in companies like Apple, Slack, LinkedIn, Facebook, Capital One, IDEO, etc. 

While the world began to understand that good design is good business. And profits are a result of building what people actually want. The ideas, innovations, and startups were exploding out of San Francisco. We saw the opportunity to spread this rebellious can-do attitude to places that were just getting started. 

Since then, we settled in Munich, Germany and work on ambitious projects around the world - all in service to do whatever it takes to design a future we all want to live in.
