Links for 5 Jan
Every few weeks we’ll share some links to pieces which point towards some POV that enables, challenges, or speaks to work we’ve managed to process.

Avanceé is a deliberate effort to help successful product teams figure out what’s next. It isn’t so much making existing products or projects efficient, but taking those existing items and looking at them from a context well outside of what’s been profitable and established. This will lead us down some interesting roads - many of which haven’t been cut or paved yet. And still, these are travels products and teams will want to take in order to continue forward in this changing world.

Welcome to Avanceé
Avanceé is a new organization - one part design consultanty, another part inventor’s factory - where we empower relationships through being out-of-the-box by design and function. Birthed from its founder’s restlessness with the safety of the status quo in design and business processes, Avanceé aims to take design to its logical extremes of changing the converstation from “what do we do” to “this is why we do.” What happens from here will simply push life forward - in every shape beyond the box that looks like.
