ABOUT US

Super Local is a design firm interested in co-creating solutions to today’s challenges. By working alongside and within communities, Super Local aims to unlock human potential, promote sustainable material practices, and advance equity and equality.

 

Super Local approaches design as a mindset and a tool, rather than an endpoint or goal. Any design should take into account who and what it impacts along its way – from the material source to the people who process it, to the way its byproducts and waste are managed. 

From the Netherlands to Rwanda to Taiwan, Super Local has demonstrated experience and an inventive spirit on a range of design projects. Go to the projects page to learn more.
