A specialised toolkit.
Our team and tools have been fine-tuned in over 7 years of experience across categories and industries. Our projects typically involve diagnostic-, strategy & concept development- and validation steps, all starting with a clear challenge and using our own tried-and-tested methodologies.
Experts in co-creation.
One of the most critical factors for successful co-creation is selecting the right collaborators. We set up a separate, dedicated team to conceive, curate and connect the very best possible groups of experts. Meet our Expert Connectors, on a mission every day to find the rare breed of 1%-er experts that can help us crack the challenge.
Together with our clients and experts we design the future. Companies turn to us for inspiration, clarity and concepts for growth.
Fronteer has an energetic team of Strategists, Experts Connectors and Office staff. With diverse backgrounds - from Strategic Product Designers to Anthropologists and Art Historians. Thus making our work and the outcomes as surprising and remarkable as the people are.
Meet us at NDSM, a former shipping wharf in the north-west of Amsterdam. A creative hotbed since the 1990’s when artists and squatters first settled in the area. If you take the ferry from Central Station today you will meet a young crowd traveling to one of the many creative companies on the wharf. We are proud to have touched down in an area where ideas blossom and concepts grow.
