Who Are We?

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” – Bernard Shaw

From birth, ‘learning’ is as vital as eating or sleeping. We learn with each breath. Our families, schools, social circles, and jobs present us with different methods of learning.  And although our universe is rapidly changing every day, teaching methods remain the same.

At Learning Designs, we say ”Learning is Fun!” We advocate that everyone, children and adults, have the right to play and learn, and do so in ways that are fun and enjoyable.  Our tailor-made games and innovative learning programs embody our values below.

FUN
Learning is fun.
EXPERIENCE
Experience is a school..
DIVERSITY
Everyone is different and everybody has a different way of learning.
AWARENESS
Awareness is the strongest achievement.
CREATIVITY
Creative mind emerges with social interaction.

 WHAT SETS US APART

WE ARE A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE FOCUSED ON SOCIAL IMPACTWE SUPPORT YOUTH ENTREPRENEURSHIP.WE PROVIDE FUNDRAISING RESOURCES FOR NGOs.WE CREATE WITH ENERGY AND JOY.

Social enterprises adopt entrepreneurship as the solution to social problems and adopt free market based methods with the aim to create radical systematic change.

Learning Designs’ goal is to show that learning and training can be more effective and enjoyable through games and to support all actors in designing qualified education. The principles that shaped us as social enterprise are the 7 principles that Nobel Prize Winner Professor Muhammad Yunus identified;

  1. The objective is to overcome one or more problems (poverty, education, health, technology access, environment etc.) which threaten people and society; not profit maximization.
  2. Financial and economic sustainability.
  3. Investors get back their investment amount only. No dividend is given beyond investment money.
  4. When investment amount is paid back, residual profit stays with the company for expansion and improvement.
  5. Environmentally conscious.
  6. Workforce gets market wage with better working conditions.
  7. Do it all with joy.
Learning Designs works with young entrepreneurs in our production and working processes. Our games’ graphic designer, our publisher, and even our game carrier designer are young local entrepreneurs.
We cooperate with NGOs in developing tailor made games. Partnerships with NGOs allow the NGO to receive a share of the profits whenever that game is used or sold on other projects and to receive part of the profits when they sell the game. For example; The Antalya EU Center Association is receiving funding from every sale and training of the Europe and Erasmus + Program designed under the project between Learning Designs and The Antalya EU Center Association. 
Our job is creating, playing and learning. We love to build and generate ideas. We do not limit ourselves to the office; we often work from nearby cafés, on public transportation, or from our homes. We learn new things every day and strive to develop solution-oriented approaches to our projects and programs.
