  Designit's Audi City model reimagines the auto showroom for a new generation of city dwellers. The brand's model range is rendered digitally, a space-saving move that allows the compact showrooms to double as a meeting room or exhbition space during off hours, or simply as a place for Audi fans to interact with the brand. After the first Audi City opened in London in 2012, Audi opened its second Audi City showroom in Beijing in 2013. Image courtesy of Designit.

  The Norwegian government retained Designit to help it streamline its immigration process in conjunction with the creation of a new agency, the Utlendingsdirektoratet or Norwegian Directorate of Immigration. The idea was to cut processing times by better managing data across multiple agencies, lightening the burden on the government while improving the "user experience" for would-be immigrants.

  Falck, a Danish health care company, worked with Designit to redesign the standard first-aid kit. The simple, colorful kit presents an intuitive visual representation of the materials contained within, making it easy use in an emergency. It is divided into four easily accessible sections representing four common first-aid needs: burns, bleeding, bruises, and sprains. Image courtesy of Designit.
