We are Pioneering Design Innovation with a Purpose

Founded in 2008, Claan has been at the forefront of delivering state of the art design and development services. As we continue to push the boundaries of creativity, we are proud to introduce DESIGNEDIN, a project born out of our commitment to innovation, ethics, and a profound sense of social responsibility.

As a studio that continues to provide cutting-edge design services, DESIGNEDIN stands out as a dedicated department with a unique focus. This initiative goes beyond conventional design principles to channel our expertise towards a cause close to our hearts – the well-being and best interests of children.

DESIGNEDIN: Including Children by Design

DESIGNEDIN is a specialised social impact venture into design services, consultancy, cultural mediation and product development dedicated to children and other stakeholders such as museums, institutions, companies with specific needs or challenges on this field. We embrace a child-centered and rights-based approach, driven by the foundational principles of ethics, the well-being of children, and a commitment to a sustainable planet.


R&D in Action: Bringing Ideas to Life

At Claan, our commitment to research and development has paved the way for DESIGNEDIN. This project is a testament to our belief in the power of design to shape a positive and impactful future. It’s not just about creating visually appealing products; it’s about crafting experiences that resonate with the unique needs and aspirations of the younger generation.

Why DESIGNEDIN Matters: A Message from Our Founder

“As the founder of Claan, and the founder of the portuguese chapter of the Designing for Children’s Rights Association, DESIGNEDIN holds a special place in my heart. It represents our dedication to making a meaningful difference in the lives of children by promoting their rights and driving a positive change in society. Through Co-design and Co-creation, we aim to inspire and empower a new generation, amplify their future and shape new worlds through design.” — Clara Vieira Rodrigues
