About Strate

At Strate School of Design, we believe a designer's main objective should be to serve his or her fellow man.

The past two centuries have seen both giant leaps in progress and some of humanity's darkest moments. From the Enlightenment to the First and Second World Wars to the realization that our natural resources are finite, we've recognized it has become imperative to think, live and consume differently.

In order to achieve this goal, it is important to take action regarding the long-term quality of our services, systems, and the objects that they are made up of. It is equally essential to let free and responsible individuals use their talents to create personal and collective projects.

The mission of 21st-century designers is precisely that: to contribute to solving this equation by connecting the demands of utility, simplicity, comfort, pleasure, and beauty to the service of each man and woman.

Make the world + simple + fair + beautiful

The Design Mix

A designer's role falls between that of a marketer and an engineer. Designers must be able to identify people's needs while mastering technology to execute their skills to the service of others.

In order to do this, a designer focuses on what we like to call "the design mix" which combines:

  • Specific technical skills,
  • Knowledge of social sciences, marketing, and engineering,
  • Project management skills,
  • Creativity.
