strategy * design * innovation

Let's shape stories
& design strategies

From strategic design to interaction design to experience design ~
From story making to story telling to story sharing ~

Strategy & Design

Design is about transformation. Process and form. System(s) for and with humans.
Architempo works from concept to composition, often busy with challenges in complex systems.
Architempo is a cross-media experience design agency, working on diverse projects for institutions and companies, with partners in networks. Founded in 2004 by Alok b. Nandi, its references include a range of works in multiple media, from concept development to strategic design, from interaction design to exhibition design.


When working with us, one possible design sequence will follow this path:
Conversation. Emergence. Narrative. Interaction. Co-creation. Design. Experience.
We favor a systems approach, human-centered. The design areas are often interconnected and labelled as per : interaction design, experience design, service design, scenario design, concept design, communication design & strategic design.
And there is of course "design thinking" which keeps us all busy. Design is a matter of tempo, tone and texture.

Innovation & Management

What matter is how - how we approach problems and opportunities.
What matter is where - where are the innovation agents and triggers.
At Architempo, we explore multiple Innovation Modes and Methods.
Design Diamond. Business Model Canvas. Co-creation workshops. Narrative Design Canvas.
We focus on how to connect creativity (new/different ideas) to innovation (implemented novel ideas) via design (tools and practices allowing to engage humans in the transformation phases). Design is a journey, with multiple stakeholders, and innovation is a state/station we reach, thanks to strategy we co-design.
Join the conversation and let's work on projects and prototypes.
