Part R&D Lab and part consultancy, we’re small, connected and serious about finding better responses to our changing world.
The old models are broken, many for very good reason; we work with our clients to give shape to creative responses, whether that’s through the creation of content or activities, new forms of organisation or operation.
We’ve helped Google to formulate possible responses to a changing high street, the Design Museum to explore how an activist museum might behave, and Dartington Estate to consider how to connect 200 small businesses to maximise their positive impact.
In recent years we’ve worked in Hong Kong and Hayes, Denmark and Dublin, Indonesia and North Carolina. We love a pressing challenge or potential partnership, get in touch if you have something in mind?
WHO WE ARE
Dee leads on Strategy. She is an experienced and skilled creative strategist and consultant, with a reputation for making sense of and finding direction within the most complex of challenges. Her unusual combination of a rational sensibility with complete commitment to creative excellence have equipped her well in past work with Tate, Science Museum and the National Trust.
Daniel leads on Creative Direction. He is an internationally recognised curator, consultant and educator with an enquiring mind and an entrepreneurial streak. His wayward curiosity and relentless pursuit of ideas account for his unlikely level of output, including founding curator of the Aram Gallery, creative director of the international multi-site Maker Library Network and his professorial role at Kingston University.
Carol joined us in 2016 to support studio administration and management. With a background in media, and more recently heritage, when we heard she was moving from senior office based roles to supporting businesses ‘virtually’ we jumped at the opportunity. Carol can be reached on [email protected]
Inés collaborates with us on experimental communication projects. An experienced communication designer she is currently embarked on a practice led Phd in social design with a focus on community engagement and co-creation. We’re lucky she finds the time to get involved in special projects with us at From Now On.
Koby collaborates on all of our visual work, from illustrations and infographics to exhibition graphics. His work as a speculative designer, tutor and researcher means he works beyond the boundaries of graphics, and we benefit from his critical thinking and communications nous.
A regular and valued collaborator, Nat brought her expertise in Circular Economy and hands on experience as Director of Design at the RSA, and running of Machines Room makerspace to benefit our work with Central Research Labs and Maker Library Network.
Our in-house learning lab, concerned with engaging and equipping young people with creative skills in a changing world, now stands on its own 2 feet, but continues to provide rich insight and experience to inform all our projects.

WHAT WE DO
We’ve curated exhibitions, delivered activity programmes and publications, and shaped the purpose and identity of the organisations and institutions that house them.
Facing uncertain futures, we’ve been speculating about cities and high streets, museums and shops, communities, work and education.
We’ve designed workshops and facilitated conversations, enabling big, complex and/or diverse groups of people articulate and shape their ideas
We create tools, formats and programmes, that motivate and inspire learners to unlock their potential and shift their horizons
