The challenge

Our connectivity is vital to making change work.

Academics say that culture is shared, learned, interconnected and dynamic – we understand that change happens in the same way. Our future is calling for solutions to complex social challenges, but it cannot happen alone. Change works when we are connected. Finite models cannot provide the long-term support that our change-makers need to create impact. From our decades of experience, we have found a better way to make it happen, and it happens when we’re together.


We use strategic design to solve social challenges in shaping a better future.

We support social change-makers with meaningful action and communications to deliver maximum impact. Our services include:

Strategic Design

Strategic design creates solutions that strike the perfect balance between creativity and practicality, allowing us to provide you with imaginative and functional ideas that meet your unique needs. By harnessing the power of design thinking and strategic planning, we help you to navigate the challenges of today’s business landscape with innovative solutions that leave a lasting impact. 


Our team can collaborate with you to develop a comprehensive communication strategy that includes messaging, content creation, social media management, media relations, and crisis communication planning. By offering ongoing communication support and services, we empower our clients to build stronger relationships with their audience and make a greater impact in the world.

Digital Product

We offer digital product services that leverage design to generate positive social impact. Our belief in the transformative power of well-designed digital products motivates us to help our clients achieve their goals. Our team of dedicated designers and developers can collaborate with you to create mobile apps, websites, and other digital products that not only deliver exceptional user experiences but also propel your mission forward and foster connections with your target audience.

Social Venture

Our joint venture services are designed for social change founders who are looking to transform their innovative ideas into successful, impactful ventures. We understand that building a successful social venture takes more than just a great idea; it takes collaboration, shared values, and a commitment to building long-term sustainability. With our strategic support, deep expertise, and a focus on positive change, we can help you transform your vision into reality and create a better world for all.

If you had said to me a few years ago that I would be the CEO of a thriving not-for-profit, hosting awards, winning grants and attracting international sponsorship I would have found it difficult to believe it could happen so soon. If it weren’t for Mars’ willingness to try new things we’d likely have an outdated online resource instead of a thriving organisation alleviating hardship for people with disability.
