Collective Works is a The Hague-based collaborative work-structure which specialises in research-based design. Founded by Karin Mientjes and Peter Zuiderwijk, Collective Works gives equal weight to various aspects of multidisciplinary design, from the process of observation and analysis to its final form of execution. Most work, either commissioned or self initiated, relates to socio-spatial questions. Collaborative answers questions and insights are embedded in activistic campaigns, analytical reflections, situational identity branding, spacial proposals or social interventions. In doing so it is the intention of Collective Works to develop strategies in a broader perspective, with projects superseding the traditional field of graphic design.
