As part of our efforts to expand our early phase value, Bespoke’s internationally recognised futures design team is joining Manyone. This acquisition will strengthen our ability and capacity to work as the preferred strategic design partner to clients.
With Bespoke’s acquisition, we’re now:
designers and strategists
Based on thorough foresight research, design process, and strategic advice, Bespoke are specialists in working with clients to identify signals of change. Together with Manyone’s strong ability to provide strategy led by execution, this combination will amplify how we help businesses and organisations navigate fast-paced and complex markets.
We buy great teams and put them together in Manyone. We find teams with completely unique skills that we can use to develop the agency. And Bespoke has approached design in a completely unique way in that they have focused on the very earliest phases of a design process – and have become enormously skilled at focusing on that.
It's insanely exciting for us … We're going to be able to spread our wings more, and we think Manyone is a place that understands our wingspan. There is space, opportunities and global visions so that we can really unfold.
Manyone and Bespoke are a perfect match as both companies have overlapping fields of expertise and even shared clients like Novo Nordisk and Jabra. The multidisciplinary team of researchers, designers, creatives and cultural analysts have also worked with a wide range of global clients.
We all know that the world is changing fast. But how fast? What is the real speed of those changes? And what will be their implications for how we live and work in the future? Our work aims at helping our clients get a better understanding of how future landscapes for their industry might unfold, and identify possible opportunities and risks within them.
It has been a gratifying experience to have been working with so many different clients and partners across geographies, industries, and fields over the past 9 years. We have seen the positive long-term effect of working with futures design in how our clients have internally adopted a more future-oriented mindset and gained a competitive advantage in their field.
