You Can Now Since 2001
Learning and doing new things, together

We’re building a community of creatively-minded people, and bringing them together to work and to learn.

Our members include big global brands such as adidas and Innocent, fast-growing newcomers like WeTransfer and Propercorn, global consultancies and recently formed studios, government departments and crusading charities, design maestros and illustrative stars. Working across all kinds of sectors, what they share are cultures and outlooks where collaboration, curiosity and an openness to learning from outside of them is welcomed.

Learning together
We help organisations to build relevant capabilities throughout their teams in rich and connected ways — from a weekly programme of workshops, roundtables and events to our digital learning platform Can; bespoke learning partnerships to cross-organisational mentoring. We believe in curated learning that directly supports business goals, builds networks and super-sizes employee satisfaction. 

Working together
We actively connect people to the best possible partners, for any conceivable project or purpose —from helping Red Bull to scope, benchmark and appoint a global roster of digital consultancies, to introducing the founders of a brand new drinks start up to designers and illustrators for their very first pack designs. Every project offers a chance for capabilities to be mutually sharpened around each side's expertise and on topics such as briefing, negotiation, presenting and project management — with learning banked and shared via feedback loops throughout.
