Danish Design Award Winners!

We are proud to announce that on 13 May 2019 we were awarded the highly coveted Danish Design Award in the Better Learning category. This award is one of the most prestigious recognitions in the field of design in the Nordic region, and as such highlights the influential work we’ve been doing in revolutionizing higher education.

Read what the the jury had to say here.

This isn’t a program like any other, this is a movement.

A movement to create experiences that are not just engaging and inspiring but multisensory and cutting edge.

A movement pushing the evolution of higher education by relying on some of the famed Nordic values and strengths: openness and trust, storytelling and cuisine, design, and pedagogical competencies.
