What we believe

We’re driven by these simple yet transformational core beliefs.

We’re deeply influenced by the principles of Community Centered Design and our commitment to equity and inclusion. These values drive everything we do, and what you can count on as our client:  

Know them, keep them.

Every audience is unique. As designers, it’s our responsibility to learn what’s real for them.

Design with, not for.

When you give those most affected by a problem a seat at the design table, better solutions emerge.

People trust people.

We’re working in a world where truth itself is uncertain. Know who you are and what you stand for.

Tech is great, human is better.

No technology, however sophisticated, has ever produced loyalty all by itself. Prioritize human interaction.

Relationships over transactions.

If you want a long-term relationship with your audience, give them a long-term relationship with you. 

Be a force for good

We joined the B Corp movement because we are committed to make design a force for good.

Our commitment to be a force for good

Context Partners became a Certified B Corporation in December 2017. B Corps are a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corp certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.

Our business was certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. We’ve evaluated how our practices impact our employees, our community, the environment and our customers.

Today, there are over 2,200 Certified B Corps around the globe. We are proud to join them in redefining success in business, so that one day everyone uses business as a force for good.
