Evert Ypma

Strategy, design, research and education

Evert Ypma works as conceptual strategist, design researcher, and educator. With his transdisciplinary practice Unbound Trajectories, a design, research and strategy consultancy, he advises private and public organizations and businesses on design-led strategies as driving capacity for transformation and development.

In 2021, he resumed the laboratory Imagining Science, which he has initiated at the Lucerne School of Art and Design. This lab explores and develops strategic and creative concepts and projects at the nexus of design/art and science. Operating as a hybrid entity, the lab focuses on the communicative, organizational, and spatial potential of collaborations between science and design/ art as a contemporary transdisciplinary practice, uniting qualities of both.

He is a research affiliate at the CityScienceLab, a cooperation between the Chair of Metropolitan Culture at the HafenCity University Hamburg and MIT Media Lab (Cambridge, USA). Evert is working on his PhD research on choice architectures and digital citizenship in urban contexts.

Evert Ypma has been leader, lecturere and advisor of various design research and BA/MA programs and graduate schools at Swiss and international art and design schools and universities.

Evert Ypma is based in Zurich, Switzerland.
