Løpe is a Digital Product Studio based in Oslo


We help leading companies build relevant digital products using Design Sprints and we regularly host design sprint training events.

The team behind Løpe has 20 years of experience with design and facilitating workshops from some the best Design Thinking training companies and institutions in the world.

“Løpe” means “to run” in Norwegian. Because we help you move faster.


We want to help people and companies spend their time smarter​. Way too much time is wasted in slow processes with tons of meetings and busy-work. Even more time is wasted on building products that nobody wants. 



How are we different?

We are time-designers. We design and facilitate processes that give you better results in less time.  

With Løpe you don't pay for month-long projects and you don't have to deal with any old-school hierarchical agency legacy. We're a small and flexible team. This allows us to move fast, iterate and experiment with our processes to create more value in less time.


We´re based in Oslo, but we run design sprints anywhere in Norway.
