Sanlam Design Thinking Workshop

Applying design thinking to improve the financial wellbeing of South Africans.


We partnered with the Sanlam Sky team to run a series of design thinking workshops with a big and audacious goal, to explore powerful ideas and business concepts to improve the financial wellbeing of the people of South Africa.


We collaborated with key Sanlam stakeholders to find the most powerful insights to solve the business challenge. This resulted in 18 powerful business concepts that were filtered into a handful prototypes that were built, user validated, and received a massive thumbs up from the people we were designing for.
