Springtime provides design research, concept design, product design and branding. We specialise in sustainable urban mobility, or New Mobility’: the realm of any modality between walking and the car.
Springtime owns over 25 years of built up business intelligence (market, product, user) and is servicing high profile customers worldwide in Micromobility and light EV.
Often ahead of the trend, we translate insights and opportunities into real, tangible solutions for our customers that drive businesses and excite users.
In order to provide our clients with the innovation they need – from strategy to manufacturing, we closely collaborate with valued specialists in related fields.
Founders John Kock and Marcel Schreuder run the studio in Amsterdam, home to Dutch cycling culture and so many successful sustainable mobility innovations.
Over the years, the work of Springtime has been awarded with numerous design awards, both in the Netherlands and internationally.
If you believe Springtime can help to drive your business, whether you’re in a start-up, SME or multinational: please contact us to discuss the possibilities. We are open to any form of collaboration and love to think with you about your innovation needs.
Design is our game, and we love to play!
By combining market insights from both desktop and real world research with a deep understanding of human needs and behaviors, Springtime uncovers trends and identifies business opportunities that will resonate with your customers and drive your business.
WHY do you innovate? Is there a need to be disruptive or radical, or will your business rather thrive by an incremental innovation approach? Asking the right questions and taking the right decisions before kicking off a project greatly determines the success of the outcome.
We believe a physical product is a primary brand expression. We translate brand strategy into verbal and visual expressions, from corporate identity to physical products and services. A consistent message across all of your brand’s expressions is what makes your brand stand out and last.
We envision, design and develop exciting and paradigm-shifting products that drive businesses and connect to customers on a functional as well as on emotional level. Our technical expertise bridges the gap between concept and realisation.
To accommodate this type of more entrepreneurial interaction with customers and partners in the field of urban mobility, we are introducing the Urban Mobility Lab (UML). UML will be a new venture, a specialist think/do tank that initiates, develops and spins-off products and services in the realm of sustainable (sub-car) urban mobility. UML shareholders will have a say in ideas to develop, co-own any IP developed within UML, and own the first right to invest in spin-off ventures.
Currently, several projects are being discussed with potential partners, including the development of our Dispatch last-mile delivery vehicle and logistics solution. Interested in participating in Urban Mobility Lab, as project partner, investor or both, contact us for more information.
