We have a holistic approach that combines strategy, design, and people development.
CRZY was created by designer and strategist Stephen Gates to bring his years of experience leading some of the world's biggest brands and working alongside the world's most innovative companies to a different kind of design studio and consulting model.
We build real partnerships with our clients to create work that combines a negotiated blend of their brand, business, and customer goals with a new vision and unique thinking.
We use research and data combined with human-centered design methodologies and honest conversations to create visionary strategies, industry-defining experiences, breakthrough brands, strong team cultures, and impactful leadership mindsets. We know that we must look beyond the creative work to help clients create the org structures, team support, and processes that will make it successful and sustainable in the long term.
Because of its strategic and essential nature, we do not publicly share our work, but we would be happy to talk to you about our approach and share our results to see how we can help you become CRZY.
There is a transformation afoot in the world of design, and Stephen is at the forefront of it.
