Essvan is the professional practice and design lab of Christian Alden Jacobs—a strategic advisor who has worked with over 40 brands to create sustainable value through inclusive design.

Our approach combines mixed-methods research with an applied understanding of many established disciplines. Our work often finds its footing at the intersection of operations management, systems design, and information architecture.

We see organizations as a set of conversations between people. It's in no small part because of this that we believe transparency, kindness, and earnestness matter, especially when collaborating to create what's next.

If you believe that values and equitable outcomes should always matter more than misaligned incentives, the tech stack, or the Head Fake Metric of the Week, there's a good chance we'll work well together.
