True InnovationTM

True InnovationTM leads to great products, a strong brand image and a successful business.

But also because we find it challenging to inspire each other. Together we work towards ambitious visions, surprising concepts, clever prototypes and the best end product. And we do this with great enthusiasm.

And our clients feel this; the start-up, the SME and the multinational. It’s not for nothing that our clients return again and again with new commissions; excited about the end result and – just as important – about the collaboration.

Future

Meanwhile, we continue to invest in the knowledge and skills that are essential to today’s design process: from strategy to engineering. You’ll find methods such as Lean here. We keep a close eye on developments such as 3D printing. And we recognise the importance of trends like crowdfunding. The complexity of products is increading and the challenges for designers are getting bigger. Our profession is changing constantly. We remain alert and "agile".

The team is at the heart of Spark. Professionals with a track record and ambition innovation and design.

Every team member has his own talents and specialism. Product strategist, concept designer, sketcher, design engineer, CAD-draftsman or model builder. And just as important: we are a close-knit group. We love working together, inspiring and learning from each other. And the creativity doesn’t stop on a Friday afternoon. Whilst one is is building a custom motorbike in his free time, the other is a furniture maker, or working on art projects, fixing up old timers or an Olympic career. Full of pride and admiration we follow each other’s work on Facebook.

Our building on the Rotterdam Lekhaven was designed by Brinkman & Van den Broek Architects and first used in 1948. You can read wonderful stories about the history of the building and see beautiful historic images at: www.vertrekhaloranjelijn.nl

Recife, Brazil

Recife is a lively city where Dutch influences dates back to the 17th century. Spark Brazil is located in the hip neighbourhood of Boa Viagem, close to the airport and right on the coast. A small, smart office with great air conditioning. Essential when you’re so close to the Equator.
