Who Are We?

Kinetic Seeds is a design consultancy tackling complex educational challenges.

Our approach is to unearth powerful insights and opportunities generated by design-thinking, participatory design, and equity-minded storytelling. We are trained to mine, connect, and package complex and dynamic information into strategic opportunities that shift mindsets, remove barriers, and lead to better, more informed futures. In the process, we help our clients leverage critical design skills and embrace new ways of working together to create an educational ecosystem where all students can thrive.

People work with us because we listen first, co-create second. They say we are “do-ers who forklift their thinking.” And we are exceptional facilitators known for finding common ground while delivering emerging next practices that can be used for immediate effect.

What Do We Believe?

We believe that diversity of people, thought and action is part of our unique social fabric and fundamental to thriving as a student, institution, community, and nation.

We believe in student voice as a key instrument of change in our educational systems.

We believe we should use every opportunity to consciously design out the inequity and inequality long present in our systems and structures.

We believe that every complex problem can be solved if we put humanity at the center of the design process.
