part of a bigger ecosystem

our ambition is to drive positive change inside the bigger ecosystem.

inland uses design to re-think work culture and enable organisations to deliver better public services.


Our design principles:

We put people first, no matter what

We always begin by identifying the people’s needs. By knowing the who and the why, we can make a difference. We are a team of change makers – people for the people and we continuously work towards better services.

We create together

We lead the co-design process with different stakeholders. We share what we’re doing with the people we work with and the people we work for, the public.

We experiment

We try out new things. We ideate, prototype, and test in order to learn. We learn from both our successes and failures to improve the next time.

We are bold and visionary

We are ambitious and work towards our vision of having a positive impact on immigrants’ lives. We work with an open mindset without limitations.

We make real things

We don’t give in to “it’s always been this way,” nor do we make empty plans. We believe that real measurable things create value. We work to make things real.
