Welcome to Inland

where we co-design public services

Inland Design is a design and innovation lab. Inland Design was part of the Finnish Immigration Service from the year 2017 to 2019 and since 2020 Inland Design has been part of the Ministry of the Interior.

We combine design thinking and advanced technology to co-design services in dialogue with communities.

Our goal is to promote an organizational change in the Interior Ministry and kick-start projects that will have a positive social impact.

We put people first, we make real things, we experiment, and we are bold and visionary.

We are changemakers.

Part of a bigger ecosystem

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

Inland Design 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 people’s 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.
