Bold Futures is a studio for innovation communications in Berlin. We use design as a medium to envision plausible futures in order to assess their desirability and spark debate. Our clients include innovation-driven companies as well as research institutions.
We form a core team of four designers of complementary disciplines. Based on project requirements we work together with scientists, developers, engineers and futurologists.
