Toi is an agency driven by the idea that discovery, strategy, research, and design can lead to a better understanding of the problems and solutions companies and organizations face every day. Our mission and purpose are to provide alignment and clarity to big ideas and challenges so that great ideas can lead to great execution.
WE ARE DIFFERENT
We know, every agency says that. There’s great designers and great agencies all over the world… we’re all doing pretty much the same thing: discovery, strategy, research, design and test/optimize the results. So how are we different?! We’re entrepreneurs who operate in the world of Design Thinking, Lean Startup, Design Sprints, MVPs. This is how we have competed against big agencies for 8 years; we’ve proven our success over and over with Startups, Non-Profits and Enterprise companies who are serious about results and innovation.
We love the Design Sprint!
We’re coaches and teachers! We don’t just come in and run workshops and design products, we educate our client partners along the way. The more knowledge everyone has, the better the collaboration. Many of our clients incorporate elements of our workshops in to their processes.
Everything we do is based off the Design Sprint. We believe that brand, growth and design are the triforce of success. Only when they are working together can you hit the real success! We have a sprint for everything and we build project plans like legos blocks. Design Sprint, Brand Sprints, Growth Sprints, Success!
It all started when…
Two of our co-founders David and Nicole DeMember went on the first Summit Series boat. Summit at Sea… 2500 founders, investors and world changers on a boat with some of the world’s most profound leaders in business, entertainment and politics transforming what it means to do business and be human in the 21st century. Right after it was clear: start a company that makes and impact on people and the world. For the past 8 years Toi has grown up with inside the summit community, working with many of its community members to create innovative, impactful products and campaigns. We keep it simple: Be a great human being and do great work.
