Design & Ethnographic Research

For organizations looking to better understand their target audience we offer customized ethnographic and design research.  We work closely with the organization to understand their specific needs.  Methodologies we use include but are not limited to:research

  • User shadows
  • Analogous experiences
  • Co-design days
  • Day-in-the-life photo journals
  • Best practices research



The most valuable part of working with CreatEdu was... "learning about the process and power of Design Thinking AND having the chance to practice it and apply it in our educational environment. Having [CreatEdu] available to work with small groups of teachers on specific projects was an important part of embedding the methodology."
-Middle School Principal

Design Thinking increases achievement and engagement by challenging students with real world complex problems and encouraging them to take risks. CreatEdu founder Coeylen Barry spoke about Design Thinking in schools at TEDx Denver Teachers in 2013. See the talk here.
