our method

Studio Tast operates from a Design Thinking philosophy and a embodied learning method. Design thinking is a way of creative thinking and a way of doing. And embodied learning, learning through the body, allows people to discover the world by doing and to assign value by making use of the capabilities of our body.

design thinking is not only for designers

A design thinker is conscious of itself, its environment and sends aware their own work and learning. We apply design thinking actively to develop innovative and meaningful solutions. In addition, we apply design thinking as an educational tool for teaching itself. By applying design thinking in our products and workshops we promote 21st century skills and lifelong learning, also known as 'learning to learn'. Here we don't only look at the future, but we bridge the gap between learning now and learning of the future. In this way we make our vision of education tangible.


The creative design thinking process deals with process control, consciously applying creativity and finding certainty in uncertainty.A team based process stimulates 21st century skills, by collaborative problem solving, using creativity, empathy and critical thinking. Furthermore design thinking addresses more abstract skills such as reflection and self-regulation. These competencies are an important part of lifelong learning. With the product Loep we make design thinking tangible for both teacher and student.

We offer various workshops, lectures and study days to introduce people with design thinking. We teach people to think in possibilities, by applying design thinking Design thinking offers multiple ways to transform a problem into a solution, where you focuses on the end user. All this, on the basis of applying different design and research methods, which can applied according to need. The methods are activities which help you grow, without having to know what will be the end result. In this manner you learn to handle every situation in a creative and confident way and you will be able to get beyond the first solution that comes to mind. This is also called “out of the box” thinking.
