Open design creates better experiences

Red Hatters believe in transparency, collaboration, and inclusion. These principles aren’t just for creating technology — they shape how we design, too.

Open design is built on collaboration.

It's a conversation between diverse voices. It's about listening to what our community needs, taking that feedback, and creating systems that work together, across teams and contexts.

Open design creates helpful and accessible experiences for real people.
