Mana consists of designers, brand builders and entrepreneurs. We believe intention fuels potential. It is the minimal base for every collaboration. We partner up with likeminded organisations to realise new inspiring realities that drive positive change. Design for impact, or go home!VISION PAPER (PDF)
Mana means 'the potential within'. Steve Jobs one said: "Life can be very limited if you take it as it is." Our modern world is designed by people. The fact that inclusivity, a sustainable future, fair trade, education, and so on, can be designed, is what makes us tick.
There is a difference between using change as a marketing asset and driving change to actually change things. We believe the world needs real change makers. Leaders who solely care about a better future and build a thriving business to realise it.
If you can't see it, you can't make it and you won't follow up on it. Visualisation creates a reasonable chance for new realities. At Mana we work with big social ideas to bring vision and intention together. They work as a compass for innovation.
Great design can move people. Design is all about attention and empathy. We believe that when we truly understand a situation, we are able to create a better alternative. Trying is not enough. You really have to care to create a new reality that can move people.
Projects are bounded by time, money, people, etc. We believe that agility and autonomy are crucial in a mission-centric process. Startup teams with no bounds will create new opportunities, innovate more and work more effective and efficient.
We believe optimism is something to fight for. Nowadays fear is often used to move people and create headlines. At Mana optimism is what makes us excited about the future. It is often a bumpy road but to us it is the only road worth fighting for.
