A movement for a better designed future.

Hey you,

Design is for everyone. We're on
a mission to make that happen.

Dash is a growing movement that calls for creative problem solving methods in all aspects of life. We aim to connect students and professionals from all fields of study, using the tools and methods of design thinking.

If you share our passion for learning in a diverse and creative way - welcome, you’re exactly where you're supposed to be!

Dash Talks

Coming in spring 2021!

Dash Talks is a seminar on the edge of design, business and technology, where industry professionals come together to learn more about design & innovation.

We've created an open space for a better understanding of the impact that can be created with good design.

During the event we have keynote speakers sharing their insights on how design and organizational culture have had a huge role in their accomplishments, multiple tracks where you can dive deep into design in practice, and networking with like-minded experts.

Dash Online

In the support of our mission, bringing design thinking closer to everyone, we have created Dash Online - virtually connecting the community of creatives and showcase how the future can be shaped with good design.

The platform gives a voice for creatives where Q&As, podcasts, and webinars will be posted from leading industry experts & innovative university students. We just published our first Dash Online -event, link from hear:


“It was the year 2017, when two students from Aalto University realised a great problem existed.

Businesses and startups kept on growing in Finland but something vital was commonly left out - design.”
