Randomised Coffee Trials

They are monthly paired conversations, arranged randomly.

Your conversation will take place online, at a time that suits you and your partner.

We currently have 100+ people paired up every month for an online chat with a coffee, on topics of design, service design, and other areas of interest. Not everyone is a designer by profession, and participants come from all corners of the world. Some use the monthly chance encounter as a break in their busy working lives, making friends in the community, while others have embarked on collaborative projects from that single conversation.

You can learn more in this blog post which reflects on one year of the random encounters.
