Stoked is a design consultancy. We use design to wake people up.

At Stoked, we help build innovative communities of practice at organizations like Bridgestone, Hyatt, Cigna, Target, Roche Pharmaceuticals, Expedia, AARP, Delta Dental, BCBS, 3M, American Refugee Committee, Google, KPMG, as well as many others.  While we consider ourselves industry agnostic, we do care deeply about partnering with mission-driven organizations that are passionate about the impact they want to have in the world.

This is what our clients have to say.

It is one thing to be human-centered, it’s another thing to be a spectacular human who inspires and teaches you to be more human-centered in your work and in life. Anna and Parker’s enthusiasm, collective energy and curiosity are contagious. Their training experience and tools have helped keep empathy at the center of our team’s thinking. We’ve also been able to build upon our already collaborative culture to move more quickly, beyond obvious ideas to deeper more meaningful ones, in a shorter period of time.
— Jamie Moran, Director of Talent Development, Colle+McVoy

Our Design Thinking education with stoked was and still is, a transformative experience. Parker and Anna brought together a great group of engaged students and mentors, and their full-contact coaching style left us skilled in addition to educated. The ideas we learned from stoked changed how we see our work as a whole and we still practice the methods every day.

Parker and Anna will wake you up. If you want revenue and growth, they’ll help you do more than your typical strategic consultant. If you want learning for life and energy for your team, they’ll beat any Away Day in the woods. They are themselves. You will amaze yourself. And there will be hugs. So if you agree Love > Fear and the world is full of possibility, give them a call.

Listen: Hyatt Hotels CEO Mark Hoplamazian

Listen to this episode of our monthly podcast, Reframe, to hear Hyatt Hotels CEO Mark Hoplamazian discuss the impact Human-Centered Design has had on his leadership style after working with Stoked.

The Stoked team employs a refreshing combination of skill, integrity and enthusiasm, and has influenced how the University of Saint Thomas approaches entrepreneurship education. It is difficult to ignore methods that clearly resonate with students; they are now seeking positions that utilize Design Thinking. Other students are seeking design thinking project opportunities to build their portfolio and skill sets. Others are applying these skills to their own entrepreneurial dreams. The faculty are working hard to integrate the methods in the entrepreneurship curriculum and across campus. Stoked’s impact was immediate and we are fortunate to have Stoked on the UST team.
— Alec Johnson, PhD, University of Saint Thomas


The team at Stoked bring a new and very positive presence to any team. Their approach to teaching and true collaboration is quickly obvious, especially in the corporate world – it like a big rush of pure innovative oxygen!
