In 2014, Mitchell graduated excellent as MSc. Industrial Design at the Technical University of Eindhoven with his design vision "Design for Education" and the product Goed Wijzer. Subsequently he founded Studio Tast in order to bring his vision and design products effectively to market.
Mitchell Jacobs is full of passion in life as an Industrial Designer and an curious enthusiast. As a child already an explorer of the world. He was learning and understanding the world through doing, which made it understandable by making mistakes, learning from it and grow. This investigative attitude became the backbone of his design vision: make people willing to learn with joy and motivation by doing.

We see an important role for designers in education, based on the current technological developments. It is their task to bridge the gap between existing learning materials and future possibilities. Studio Tast is specialising on the intersection between technology, design and people. That’s how we are creating an inspiring learning environment fitting the perception of current and future generations in a continuously changing society. Education becomes thereby a flexible and changing system, because learning can happen anywhere and during your entire life. To achieve this we operate from 6 core values:

INNOVATION

Innovative concepts are designed based on user needs. First of all, problems and needs are being identified. The next step is to design elegant and user-friendly solutions.

CREATIVITY

Creativity creates new “out of the box” insights which can give the concepts an extra dimension. Creativity is also about the freedom and diversity in use, so everyone can learn in his own way and speed.

USERS FIRST

Studio Tast designs from user needs. Active interactions with users take place to find the core of these needs. Activities differ from work shadowing in school, lessons to co-design sessions and design interventions.

INTEGRATION

The integration of all additional disciplines is necessary, besides the development of new concepts. Think for example of technology, didactics, privacy and usability.

PASSION

Passion is the incentive that has created Studio Tast. Passion for design, education and technology. With the aim to develop innovative and high quality solutions for the education of today and tomorrow.

COLLABORATION

To achieve real innovation we see a lot of interest in collaborations with other (knowledge) partners. Together we can achieve more and create opportunities to strengthen and enrich each other.
