You exist to make a difference and use your creative talents towards solving gnarly challenges.

You’re a rebel calling bullshit on the existing, broken systems that prevent positive innovation from happening.

You are capable of doing more than you have been taught to believe.

You are one of us. You are one of the determined ones.

The Determined is a collective of designers, makers, doers—rebels hell bent for positive change. We exist to ensure good people doing good work not fail. Simple as that.

We use what we know works, but we’re not afraid to try new things. Best practices, business as usual, the status-quo of today can no longer solve tomorrow’s problems.

Our world is changing rapidly. We’ve got huge problems to solve; social, environmental, political, you name it. So let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work.

If you consider yourself a rebel, misfit, or outlier with a mission to create positive change in the world, then welcome to the rebellion.



The Determined empowers visionary leaders and makers to create a better world by changing paradigms and challenging the status quo.
