What We Do

Are you designing a project, service or policy?

Deeptech is a research consultancy that looks at things systemically. 

We do user research and trends analysis to help organizations design services, initiatives and policies that address complex issues.

We can help you to:
• establish whether what you are doing is working
• determine how to best meet the needs of the people you serve
• understand how those needs connect to bigger picture trends
• illustrate concepts visually (photo, web, diagrams)

Systems design always encompasses a diverse set of stakeholders and we work to bridge gaps in communication between them. We are trained in human-centered design and visual anthropology.
