About Us

Founded on 1 January 2020, The New Design Congress is an independent research and strategy organisation based in Berlin, Germany. We see all infrastructure as power and technologies as societal accelerants. We develop unique understandings of the relationships between societies and their technologies.

We work with product teams, company leadership, non profits and political parties, providing clear strategic, policy and product direction to affect nuanced change in a complex world.

We publish freely-available public versions of each research project and use this to cultivate a broader collaborative network of professional expertise.

We are supported by or have worked with:

  • Simply Secure
  • Public Office
  • Components
  • Aspiration Tech
  • Filantropia
  • Furtherfield
  • Reclaim Futures
