How can we create new knowledge by engaging with wider audiences? How can we shed light on an area of study by distilling our insights in a way that makes them more accessible?
For researchers it is pivotal to ask these questions today, especially within increasingly global connected academic community. The only question is: how to do it? Peak15 was founded to bridge the gap between science, communication and design to make research visible.
We use design as a tool throughout the research process, from creating
prototypes or design probes at the start, to collating and interpreting the results for a wider, non-academic audience at the end. Collaborations with researchers may result in identities, exhibitions, websites, apps. Science and design can benefit highly from collaborating with each other, our selected projects demonstrate our results.
