« I always think that there are two products at the end of a programme; there is the physical product or the service, the thing that you have managed to make, and then there is all that you have learned. The power of what you have learned enables you to do the next thing and it enables you to do the next thing better. »

Company history

Even though our individual stories start well before Asity was founded, our more than 15 years history (2003) is rich in breakthroughs and pivots.

1

Asity was founded in 2003 by two individuals with about 2 decades of experience. One has a background in design, including design thinking, product design, graphic design, web design, IT architecture and urbanism and the other one has a background in industrial security and quality insurance.

2

Until 2008, Asity operated mainly in IT Urbanism and Software Platforms design and development.

3

In 2009 we began a new product and service design period including all-in-one products made with hardware, software and service.

4

Beginning in 2010, “ The art of the start ” and “ Lean Startup ” drew a new period in our design approaches.

5

In 2011, the return to public surveying & marketing practices marked the foundation of our UX Design (User eXperience) approaches.

6

Technique developments around Mix Marketing allowed for an evolution of our Design skills on the CX aspects (Customer eXperience) of products and companies.

7

In 2016 we elaborated on our own technology and processes including tools to improve empathy, research, modeling, project framing and to train team members.
