Extraordinary Facility is a design studio for learning and play. We help clients and collaborators develop products, services and media that spark curiosity and creativity.
The studio works with clients of all shapes and sizes – from teachers to toymakers. We can help with:
- Research & Strategy
- Curriculum Development
- Product Development
- Service Design
- Information Design
- Instructional Design
- Interaction Design / UX
- Toy and Game Design
Clients come to Extraordinary Facility for our unique balance of rigor and playfulness. We’ll ask the questions needed to refine and clarify ideas, but also leave room for exploration, improvisation and serendipity – the raw materials of creative leaps.
The studio’s approach is grounded in Making as Thinking – in building quick, exploratory prototypes as early as possible – which helps form a deeper, more direct understanding of a project’s needs.
We also develop our own projects. They allow us to experiment and explore, developing new approaches, insights and capabilities, which feed back into client work.
Extraordinary Facility was founded by Matt Brown in 2016. Matt studied Education at Goldsmiths and Interaction Design at the Royal College of Art in London. He has been designing award-winning products, services and media for over fifteen years, most recently with the Human Interface Device Prototyping Group at Apple.
Work with us!
The studio is deliberately small and nimble. You can work directly with Matt as sole designer; he can put a project team together from his collaborators based all over the world, or he can come work in-house with your team. If you’d like to know more, get in touch.
