Matchboxology are Africa’s oldest human centered design specialist with over a decade of experience across the continent. Based in South Africa, we offer a unique set of HCD tools and methodologies to help leaders and organisations change behaviours and systems on their mission to improve lives. Through ecosystem immersions, we are able to uncover perceptions, attitudes, behaviours, triggers, motivators and barriers that are often overlooked and critical to solutioning. By combining teams from these ecosystems with our network of global technical and creative experts and wildcard specialists in highly interactive, collective problem solving sessions, Matchboxology is able to generate unexpected prototypes that consistently generate high-value impact on behaviours and systems.

Matchboxology has been a powerful tool for leaders and teams at Levi’s® South Africa and San Francisco, Barclays Africa, MTN, USAID, Gates Foundation, John Snow International, Abt Associates, Palladium Group and others. Along the way we have helped those leaders establish project and/or organization cultures powered by purpose and an aligned definition of success.
