Our design principle

A more human way of learning.

BACKGROUND
After launching an international design and technology school, Benji’s founder, Matt Parson, saw firsthand how in-person, instructor-led, education is often cost-prohibitive and that the alternative of online courses has low completion and poor learning outcomes.

We’re in a world where technology has expanded by leaps and bounds but workplace learning has lost its way. For most things, people simply learn better from people.

We want to bring back learning as a collaborative moment where understanding each others’ perspective and humanity has the highest value.

It is the long history of humankind, those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.

— Charles Darwin
WHAT WE DO
We create tools that help people learn with and from each other.

Who we are.

We’re a group of designers, storytellers, and educators.
