We'll find you an outcome worth reaching, and we'll use a heady blend of both logical and creative thinking to do it

When we are young, we are scientists that wonder at how things work. We are visionaries that imagine other worlds and engineers that make things. We are altruists that hope the things we make change our world, just a little bit. 

In time, we often lose touch with these different viewpoints. We forget how they fit together. Cognitive Ink was created to capitalise on the unrealised and useful relationships between the rationality of science and engineering, and the fluidity of creativity and design.

Founded by social scientists, designers, entrepreneurs, thinkers and strategists; Cognitive Ink is the result of a decade of bottom-up practical experience in deep research, analysis, psychology, ideation, design and delivery.

At Cognitive Ink, we are interested in everything, so we understand real insight is what we find after digging beneath the surface. More importantly, we help you translate insight through design into outcomes that make a positive difference. 


Are you happy with your product, service or environment?

Are you happy with the past, present and future of your product, service, offering or environment? We won’t presume to know you until we’ve met you, but did you hesitate to answer the question? Even a little bit? It doesn’t matter if you are checking, fixing or remaking something that exists.

It doesn’t matter if you want to create a brand new product or service. It doesn’t matter if you want to change an entire market or culture. We can bring a unique and problem solving perspective to bear. Let’s talk and see where the road takes us. 


We've turned our own design methods on ourselves to develop a unique framework of six types of needs that you have. Explore one need, or several; from 1 day to 100 days. 


Let's talk about where you are now, and where you need to be. 

The future is will be here sooner then you think. The longer you wait, the more may change.
