The approach

AWAKING THE SLEEPING CHILD IN US ALL

At Akenomy, our aim is to awaken the child sleeping in each of us. 

The driving motor of our team is crafting and transmitting beautiful stories that stir curiosity and bring enchantment to the mundane.

We take particular care in the affordance of the products or projects that we conceive. The ability of a product to suggest its utility is developed through two manners:

Cognitive psychology and ergonomy, particularly in human-machine interaction and user experience quality.

Socio-economic psychology, by working on object's value perception, as well as its belonging to a brand or a group of users.
