DreamVok

Design Innovation x Technology R & D, Redefining Market Game Rules

DreamVok is the first spin-off design consultancy derived from the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in more than 40-year history.

Dechnology innovation models

Based on seven years of experience working on over 350 innovative products and service design in the fields of R&D, travel, healthcare, finance, and public services, DreamVok has developed the “Dechnology” innovation method, which combines service design, business model creation, and technology integration.

We follow the 4D service design process and help clients re-define target customer behavior and needs. On that basis, we connect multidisciplinary stakeholders to build new business partners and resources in order to create unique value and experiences. Furthermore, due to the rise in the aging society, DreamVok also focuses on the next 50⁺ market to generate new solutions that can transform the “Chapter Two” in life.

DreamVok’s 4D Service Design Process

Finally, “DreamVok “is a combination of “Dream” and “Evoke” and suggests “evoking dreams and hopes.” The letter “V” (two lines converging) represents our cooperation with our clients and emphasizes the importance of “co-creation” in cultivating unique value and experiences.
