FRONTIER DESIGN GROUP was founded on International Peace Day to solve the world’s most complex national and human security challenges. We balance rigorous, data-driven analysis of complex systems with the creativity of design tools to build innovative solutions.
WE ARE DESIGNERS, ADVISERS, and PRACTITIONERS, using the tools of design and systems thinking to show not tell our partners how their most pressing needs can be addressed to realize maximum impact.
WE BELIEVE it takes creativity, courage, and commitment to engage and sustain agile, effective organizations and thriving communities.
WE TACKLE the riskiest problems in the scrappiest, most imaginative ways. We co-create with not for our clients and integrate cutting-edge thinking from disparate disciplines. Our clients value our highly collaborative problem solving processes as much as the solutions we design and implement together.
