It completely changed the way we think about innovation.
- Elodie Camaret, Director of Consumer Innovation, R&D Essilor of America
Diana and Max are phenomenal facilitators with infectious enthusiasm for designing products and services around existing human needs. They're wholistic thinkers who will help you search for improvement opportunities or blue-sky innovations - whether it be internal processes or external products/services - within your company.
We brought them in to guide our U.S. Innovation Lab through a design thinking sprint with the aim of generating product/service ideas for R&D. At the outset, Diana and Max dove right into understanding our organizational goals, helping us zero-in on the scope to be explored in this sprint. They designed informative and fun workshops that taught us empathy-based research methods and data synthesis, as well as led us through several days of ideation using human centered co-design workshops.
Diana and Max expertly guided our team through the rapid prototyping and testing phases where we were able to gather valuable insights for the company. Attending their workshops completely changed the way we think about innovation within the organization. One of our goals was to make design thinking a repeatable process across the company. Diana and Max not only taught us the methods and tools of design thinking, but also helped us get management buy-in.
Throughout their time with us, everyone got inspired with practical tools for working on any challenges using design thinking framework and tools.
- Sheila Hurley, Engineer, R&D Essilor of America
Max and Diana are rare talents who provided us with expert guidance in understanding customer behavior. We hired them to lead our Innovation Lab through a Design Thinking Sprint with the goal of making Design Thinking a repeatable process throughout our organization.
Initially, we did not know what to expect but they made us feel like we were in good hands from Day 1. Throughout the 5 months with us, Diana and Max guided us through identification of Sprint goals, conducting user research and analysis, and kept us on track through prototype testings months later. They were flexible during the whole process which resulted in a more tailored experience to meet our needs.
They also worked closely with us to get buy-in and continued to support the team beyond their contract engagement. I feel confident that we can successfully complete a future design thinking sprint as a result of the training given by Diana and Max. Hire them!
They get design teams unstuck.

Our team understood that, in the Design Thinking world, workshops are a fundamental tool. They can bring business goals to the surface, align stakeholders, uncover latent customer needs, and get design teams 'unstuck'.
Our business is very complex with multiple moving parts, but no matter the objective, Diana and Max seem to have a workshop strategy and their manner of execution is an art form.
