About us

At Super Local we design products, services and systems to improve the quality of live of the poor.

90% of the world population is lacking the financial capacity for traditional design, but does have a need for well-designed products and insightful solutions.

We are passionate problem solvers, story tellers and fixers and our human-centered approach is hands-on and based on collaboration with local communities, organizations and partners.

Current job

Currently we have taken up full time jobs in which we can keep on designing and setting up production processes. Pim as supervisor in a creative workshop at Nimeto Utrecht, secondary vocational education and Luc as a senior manager in the Adidas MakerLab at Adidas HQ in Germany.

We did this in reason for extending our passion to professional environment. It is important to round out our experience while we were figuring out how to extend our passion to a professional business for Super Local.
