Lead Experience Designer at Symplicit
Online Media | Melbourne, Australia, AU
I specialise in human centred innovation for products and services, with a passion towards new and emerging technologies. Using strategic design process and design thinking methods with an agile philosophy to help ideas to launch and start doing something.
I assist in building digital products and services that bridge the gap between technology and the world in which people use them. This works towards developing effective business models to produce innovative products, services and launch campaigns.
From researching various disciplines I found a common theme across existing business process methodologies such as project management, marketing, new product development, user experience, usability and user-centred design.
By combining these; more effective pathways can be tailored for designing 21st century products and services that focus toward what someone is out to achieve aligned with targeted business goals and campaigns.
My recent activities have included facilitating design thinking methods and service design workshops across Australia and Internationally. Some of these have been with Hub Melbourne, Ideas for Melbourne with Adam Bandt, and the Victoria-India Service Design Jam for the Victoria State of Design Festival, the Edge of the Web Conference & Aust. Web Industry Association and most recently the Global Service, Sustainability and Gov Jams.
