About us

Digital Coproduction is a product development company focused on helping the public and third sector develop affordable digital products. We have established a 6D approach which ensures a full discovery of the problem context, defines the problem before creating an initial design. A decision point provides the evidence to carry out the development and deliver a pilot. We are led by four individuals with the range of skills and experience to cover our 6Ds.
