How we work

We offer a range of services from strategy workshops and in-depth analysis to hands-on campaign execution. Our initial step is always to analyze the client’s needs through listening, studying and asking questions.
Depending on the task and scope of a project, we collaborate with a range of skilled digital forerunners, graphic designers, writers, filmmakers, photographers and other creative mavericks.

Owned projects

At CDA, we are passionate about putting design and forward thinking on the agenda. That is why we run the two platforms:
The Mindcraft Project is a platform for explorative and experimental design that addresses issues of future relevance in a meeting between design, craftsmanship, art, research and technology.
Nordic Design Trace is a digital PR platform that promotes and connects Nordic design brands and exhibitions at selected international design events.
