About Us

The Design Institute, Lagos is a product, experience, and innovation Design Firm.

The Design Institute, Lagos is a product, experience, and innovation Design Firm. We teach people how to establish and nurture creativity in their lives and organizations. Our office is a space for doers – startups, artists, musicians, creativity in all its forms. The foundation of our work is design thinking – a methodology rooted in human emotion and interaction as the source of all compelling innovation. We are your company’s outsourced innovation team and the workshop for your fledgling side project.

TDI exists to bring out the best in people, teams, and companies. We are on a mission to transform the way people think, the way they solve problems, the way they work together, and the way they build solutions.

What happens when you come to us?

Here we don’t have teachers or instructors, but design coaches. Our coaches help you understand the methodology of design thinking. They work with your organisation to uncover game-changing and unprecedented solutions and answers to your business challenges. They coach you one-on-one to be the sort of compelling, honest, creative leader that people want to follow. At TDI, we believe you already have the creativity it takes to unlock the solutions you seek. Our job is to nurture and feed that creativity; to create a space where you aren’t afraid to play inside, outside and far away from the sandbox.

Combined, our team has facilitated design thinking and executive coaching sessions at places as diverse as The IrelandDavenport Ad Agency, Victoria’s Secret, ALN Ventures and Stanford University. We’ve worked at Google, Esquire Magazine, Amazon, and The United Nations. We hold degrees from Obafemi Awolowo University Ife, Cranfield University, Stanford University, New York University, and the University of Hertfordshire.
