Frisian Design Factory

The Frisian Design Factory is looking for concrete solutions for multidisciplinary problems. We work with real assignments from companies. We see that companies can innovate in their own sector, but finding cross-sector innovations/solutions turns out to be a challenge. Our approach goes beyond the boundaries of sectors. We are concerned with issues of the future and seek solutions. These solutions we create with teams of students, creative experts, researchers and research institutions and companies. Our method Design Thinking generates new knowledge and skills, in addition to concrete solutions for these issues. Our approach contributes to regional business, economic strength and jobs. You will be working in interdisciplinary teams, with students from different schools. You will be working on real assignments and providing the client with different prototypes. We have our owns studio in an old prison in the center of Leeuwarden. For more info:
