We are designers driven by curiosity, information and the human experience.

About

Welcome to Department of Unusual Certainties

As a studio, DoUC has always blurred the lines between the conventional practices of design, urbanism, strategy, art and problem solving. We create Structured Explorations for our clients that are driven by curiosity, and always begin by gaining an understanding of the human experience at the core of a situation.


Building up from that understanding of experiences, DoUC works collaboratively to define a process, incorporating elements of research, engagement, experimentation, communication and implementation that will best achieve the goals of the project stakeholders.


What is a Structured Exploration?
We create processes and tools for our clients and partners that ask questions, gather and analyze information, generate insight, devise strategies, prototype ideas, and lead to transformation rooted in your organization’s vision and values.


We work with you to build out and facilitate a clear, structured process so that you are free to be curious and creative.


Some examples of past Structured Explorations have included community engagements, experience design & mapping, workshop facilitation, or prototyping and concept realization.


DoUC's objective is to use thoughtful, collaborative and research-driven design to empower transformation. We explore how the world was, is and how it could be, and share those stories.

City of Experiences

As we enter the 21st century, the experience of life in the contemporary has surpassed the classic development models of the 20th century. We are living in the 50/50 (some might say 70/30), a fluid presence between the virtual and physical worlds. This is shaping alternative modes for how we exist, providing us with the potential to manage and create multiple realities and stories which influence how we want to be seen and understood. But how do we in turn adapt and understand ideologies, structures and systems in this new way of living, modifying the definition of cities to encompass the experiences of the invisible cities that extend beyond physical infrastructure?

Pioneering Green Communities

The past two years of work with ReWilding and many of the communities around Lake Simcoe has been a huge opportunity for growth at DoUC. We’ve had the chance to contribute to exciting projects and activities, meet so many amazing people and most importantly, see the impact our designs have had on the community. These experiences have been rewarding for us in many ways, but it’s always nice (and humbling!) to receive some outside recognition.
