Creativity through human experience
We combine collaboration, design thinking, and user experience to help our clients develop new ideas and accelerate their projects.
nod-A is an innovative agency whose objective is to spread new collaborative working methods, from the digital sector to large public and private organizations. nod-A developed their own "Makestorming" methodology based on Agile methods, Design thinking and Sprint Design.
nod-A serves 30+ large clients across different industries and public administrations. The agency employs approximately 25 people and generates more than €2 million in revenue.
The nod-A team is convinced that traditional ways of working have to change. Their mission is to show big companies that innovative methods are not only possible, but better! And they do it with passion.
Since 2009, they have been hosting innovation workshops, providing tools for companies to host their own workshops and training companies to adopt these new ways of working. All of these tools make for an agile work environment, a sense of purpose and more tangible action in the workplace.
In 2019, Nod-A joined Sia Partners, to create our design hub. Their experience enriches the world of consulting thanks to over ten years of collaboration, prototyping and user-centric design.
Above all, nod-A is a tight-knit, dynamic team with a robust, collaborative work culture. We’re looking for people who are rigorous, autonomous and creative. But first and foremost, we’re looking for people who agree that “teamwork” isn’t just a buzzword; people we can rely on, who trust one another.
We value diverse experiences, from entrepreneurs to an entrepreneurial spirit. People who get things done, who are not only proactive, but also the driving force behind their work.
A Focus on Sprint Design
A “basic” Sprint Design is typically a one or two-day workshop that can be held at the client’s office or in our Design Center, and requires around 20 days of preparation (prototyping, 3D printers, tool customization).
