WHY OBSIDEA?

One of our core values is upholding identity. This means we never put anything out we are not proud of; every project should push the needle forward. Companies must adapt or be left behind and this is only made possible with strong learning foundations. We want to partner with businesses who are looking to innovate their learning identity.

Wemake it easy for businesses to innovate their learning needs by using the latest technology, methods and authoring tools.

We never repeat old tricks, which means your employees will be able to experience new ways of learning to keep them engaged, from micro-learning, interactive magazines, XR experiences and more.

OUR VALUES

Uphold Identity — We hold true to our values and bring clients along that journey. We see each project as a partnership.

Evolve Ideas into Stories — Stories are compelling, and we believe learning should be as well.

Build Value — Rethinking value propositions to ensure return on investment for partners, learners and our team.

Create Simplexity — Nothing is too complex, in the new world simplexity always wins.
