Talent as a Service
A global strategic design studio that aims to anticipate the experiences of the future? It exists, and it’s called Sketchin. With 13 teams of multidisciplinary designers and over 100 people spread over four locations (Lugano, Milan, Rome, and San Francisco), Sketchin is united, agile, and efficient. It interprets technology and works to create a world where tech, through design, can enable people to have amazing experiences.
Essentially, Sketchin helps companies explore and face their future by launching new products and services. They support organizations in evolving by designing inclusive physical/digital experiences to create lasting and sustainable value.
Sarah Corti is the Chief Design Officer of Sketchin. She approached Cosmico in order to access top-level talent who could keep pace with their in-house teams on complex projects. This has helped Sketchin maximize productivity at peak times. To enhance her teams, she used our Talent Matching service, which allowed Sketchin to boost efficiency during periods of busy workloads or to find specific niche skills through the Cosmico community. Our talent works remotely alongside studio designers and directors as an integral part of internal teams. In particular, the figures chosen by Sketchin are mainly Copywriters, UX/UI Designers, and Service Designers.
In Cosmico I found exactly what I was looking for: the ability to tap into a network of professionals with the certainty of finding the right profile in terms of hard and soft skills. I was impressed by the proactivity, response time, and willingness to build side by side (Sketchin + Cosmico) an engagement process that was efficient and fast, and that always guaranteed a valuable match for each request.

The future is uncertain by definition. And that's why it’s probably scary. Sketchin is the partner of all those companies that see the future as an opportunity rather than a threat. How to seize this opportunity? Through technology and design: technology has always transformed the human experience: it's like magic, it captivates and opens up new horizons, but at the same time, it can be cold and intimidate those who don't understand it. Just like Sketchin, we are also convinced that today technology is more than ever the key to seizing the opportunities of the future, provided that we know how to make it accessible and "human" with good design. Together with Sketchin, we want to discover new opportunities and transform them into sustainable value for people, organizations, and the planet.

A new generation of savers has been born. And with it, a new digital piggy bank has also emerged. It's called Gimme5, a project by the asset management company AcomeA. It's an app that allows each of us to access the investment world and put money aside smartly, even from just €1. It's super simple: you set your goal (a car, a trip, or another dream) and activate the rules you prefer to follow in order to reach it faster, step by step. You can choose from various automatic settings, such as "Special Dates" to save a sum every time an important date occurs, "Sports" to deposit an amount every time your favorite soccer or basketball team wins, "Daily Steps" to set a target of steps and save money when you reach it, or even simply set aside a fixed amount each day, week, or month. Whatever you save, whether it’s small or large amounts, is invested to help it grow over time. With over 570,000 users reached, 150 million euros saved, 6 million euros of generated value, and over 35,000 goals achieved, Gimme5 allows people to live their life while saving and investing to achieve their goals without stress.
Even the most skeptical people will want to change their way of living when they enter AWorld. It won't be from the effect of a magic formula but from the effectiveness of the digital experience provided by this app supported by the United Nations for the fight against climate change. How? By helping and encouraging people to take sustainable actions and learn about sustainability-related topics. The app isn’t only aimed at company employees but individual users as well. To educate their employees on sustainability topics, companies - such as food franchises, banks, and major Italian organizations - choose AWorld not only because the app is a convenient tool but also because it’s the only platform supported by the United Nations for the ACTNOW Campaign: all the content is approved by the UN, which supports the entire project. That's what sets it apart from its competitors. The app has over 900,000 downloads worldwide, and the company has two offices in Milan and Turin, located within the United Nations offices.
