it's a relationship

revolution

people make it possible

Context Partners is a new type of design firm focused on community. We create relationships and dynamic human networks that help aspirational brands and causes succeed. Our clients live in a changing world where traditional models are failing, relationships are more valued than transactions, and passive audiences are coalescing into powerful vocal communities. Community-centered design means it’s all about people, because those closest to the problem will guide the way to solutions. We don’t rely solely on experts, new technologies or the usual go-to strategies for all the answers. Context Partners believes that understanding people and communities and leveraging the power of these relationships is the best way to help companies and organizations thrive.





“But the truth is most innovations are created through networks — groups of people working in concert.”

Wall Street Journal

“The most successful companies no longer invent new products and services on their own. They create them along with their customers.”

C.K. Prahalad, author of The new age of innovation

“Gallup’s research indicates that high levels of employee engagement correlate to more idea sharing, better idea generation, more creativity in role, and improved business outcomes.”

Jason Kreiger, Gallup Consultant

“No matter who you are, most of the smartest people work for someone else.”

Bill Joy, Sun Microsystems co-founder
