Timewarp Design program

The educational network for social learning and distributed problem solving.


Centralized control through AI/ML does not lead us to a humane future we all deserve. Centralized control over transactions will lead to de-humanization of society.

Weak leaders want control, strong leaders want to enable people to do their best work.

That's why we are working on a co-creation network for social learning and distributed problem solving. We developed a conversational interaction design method that allows you to combine utility, education and hospitality in interactive content streams.

Tell and people forget, show and people remember, and involve and people understand. Interested? Want to make your subject matter actionable, reach out.

The co-creation network aimed at achieving meaningful outcomes through assisted learning and distributed problem-solving techniques, fostering collaboration and creativity among its participants.

Social Design Academy

Educational Program

Conversational Wallet Design & Digital Governance Design for the 21st Century. Methods, workshops, exercises, templates and formats to Systemize Social Innovation using non-linear conversational blockchain wallet design.

Community Innovation Platform

Our current governance models are becoming too slow. Information overload is the biggest problem that makes people passive. Design what matters in a new conversational network, for the people by the people.

Our Rebuild as Assistant course is a systematic approach that results in a social interface layer that connects your audiences and removes feature-creep from your software by asking people what they need.

Let's humanize our software design, and replace page-based design with conversational interaction design and build Virtual Assistants in which you can monetize digital storytelling.

In this course we will rebuild Cardano Wallet software into digital conversations, turning a software application into a Virtual Assistant. This course shows a better way to match the fluidness of sound money with a new front-end approach that is screen agnostic and AR/VR ready.


The In-wallet onboarding educational project and the Rebuild as Assistant course are funded by Project Catalyst.

Therefor this course is free for funded Cardano Catalyst projects that want to make the world a better place.

Social Design Academy promotes the creation of software that benefits society as a whole. The world is still designing software for the individual, it's time that we design software that connects the virtual and real world in meaningful ways. Our mission Humanize and Democratize Web3 design and our motto: "Build Global, Stay local."

Are you not funded by Cardano Project Catalyst? No worries, if you feel you would benefit from real social software design and aim to make the world a better place, reach out and tell us your story.

Five study area’s

Conversation Design Principles
Design principles are vision statements for your project, they are the boundaries for your thought direction. They ground the stance you want to defend as team, and guide the decision making in your work. Without design principles your decision making will be prone to human bias and opinion.
Even Energy Distribution
Because of our linear mindset we often spend most time in designing in the before stage of our application. The energy distribution in during and after stages are often neglected, but create a lot of chaos in the process. Social Design aims for an even energy distribution leading to a pleasant and friendly product people love.
Story Structures
Expectation management in digital product design is almost non existent. Take your audience on a engaging experience and guide them where they are, and what they need by asking questions instead of telling them what to do.
Data Structures
Depending on your domain data standardization can be of paramount importance, Conversation Design uses standardized UX KPI’s so research in your domain is included.
Container Principle
Our data governance is broken as we coerce users in our domain, we must design with data in motion in a changing world. Keep your data in context, ask for actors consent. By giving Everybody an Assistant that keeps a check on personal data, your data become a study of self.

Conversational Interaction design enables us to design our software front-end in a consistent way and focus on value creation, instead of feature building.

Digital conversations combine social design with digital product design and raises the bar for software design for web3.


Co-study & Co-design

Learning always works best in teams of 3, find you peer, set your social design challenge and build together.

Weekly Challenges.

From Design Critiques, Design Ping Pong, to UX review, learning is always more fun with practical challenges. Every week we review exceptional work together.

Live Classes

The newest collaboration tools will enable us to show that a design system without a new way of working does not level up your design skills.

Co-intelligence is at the core of social design and in our live-classes we use Social UX and converasational interaction design in tandem. Strap in.

Design in motion

Design must evoke and digital storytelling and wayfinding doesn’t become immersive when things are static on the screen. 

Motion design is a core skill at the Social Design Academy. Join us and let put web3 in motion.

Timewarp Design Program

“Designing for Human Activities and Routines really helps in simplifying our software, and deliver true value from the first moment of contact. Designing our own ecosystem and being able to design digital and interactive conversations really helped us to scale our hope narrative. Being able to involve people, instead of talking to people is amazing.”

Next Gen Digital Governance using privacy by design

“Privacy by design is as simple of an insight, as it’s practical to use. Being able to able to keep the data in the users pocket while have an open communication channel with our audiences is truly a revolutionary find in digital product design.”

We didn’t realize how harsh our software was.

“Now we use Conversational Experience Design we see how harsh and impolite our software actually was. Being able to design for time, location and context is real eyeopener. Situational aware Assistants are an exciting new field. It’s strange how blind we can be if we keep ourselves locked up in our offices, or at home for that matter.”
