Creative Strategy

Strategy, Visioning, Curation, Art Direction, Project Management, Voice of the User

We use design to find and develop strategies to engage people, deliver messages and help create successful relationships, products, systems and communities.

We always work closely with our clients, and the people they want to reach. We move quickly to test our ideas and find the right problems to solve.

We do planning and delivery, working with a range of local and national suppliers.


Client: The Creative Exchange

What we did: Curation, visual design

Drawing from projects devised by The Creative Exchange, a UK knowledge sharing hub for the creative economy, the exhibition explored how designers, makers and artists have worked across public and private sectors to develop new concepts, products, services and infrastructures.

Client: Lancashire County Council

What we did: Creative Engagement Strategy

A 12-month programme of public engagement activities developed as a core part of Lancashire County Council's castle hill regeneration initiative, funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund. Spanning a wide range of design competencies, Daca worked to develop communication strategy across print and digital media, addressing awareness, experience and participation. Daca led the design of popup exhibitions and creative consultation events, alongside the conversion of A-wing in Lancaster Castle into a 24-hour hackathon space, with public exhibition and awards ceremony.
