Who we are
CTD ApS is a Copenhagen based community of designers, entrepreneurs, engineers, anthropologists, researchers and more. CTD is short for Circular Through Design – our mission and vision is ambitious and at the same time simple: To facilitate a transformation of the way companies and institutions design their business, processes and products to ensure a sustainable path forward.
What we do
We combine and apply two significant trends that have arisen in the last decade: Design Thinking and Circular Economy. We create solutions and insights for our clients that enable them to develop sustainable products and processes that embrace real human needs, demands and future challenges.
How we do it
We have a shared belief that change starts by listening to individuals, and placing these at the centre of our approach. Understanding needs and bringing these insights together with what is technologically feasible, economically viable and sustain-able are at the core of what we do.
It takes courage to break free from the old patterns and invest time and effort to create viable and long-term solutions. To do this, we strive to be open and unafraid to fail and try again. This is our dream and aspiration.
We are not afraid of going in deep and getting our hands dirty – Solutions seen from a different perspective.
Keeping information and work flow in an agile format visible to the team at all times is key to innovation and knowledge sharing.
Preto-typing enables valuable insights at an early stage. We have 24/7 access to a variety of machines and equipment for product development.
We strive to balance the informal with a high level of aptitude and are not afraid to challenge our own and our clients believes.
We are driven – by our employees – by our believes that change starts with listening and being agile and adaptable – by a profound belief that it is possible to find sustainable solutions for all challenges.
Our employees and external consultants reflect this, being comprised of entrepreneurs, passionate innovators and people that think outside the box. We invite for diversity in skills and personality, and our team cover a wide range of disciplines enabling us to develop solutions across a variety of fields and industries.
