Sticky Design Studio
I am passionate about enabling better futures for individuals, society and the planet and have been practicing design for close to 20 years. While human-centred design is a useful approach, it is not the silver bullet for sustainable systems change. Recently I have been building expertise in Systems Thinking, Adaptive Leadership, Non-Violent Communication and Asset-Based Community Development practices to inform my change making work. The perpetual student, rely on diverse approaches to help make change stick!

Passionate about building design and social change capacity, I teach service design, human-centred design, and co-design at universities and assist organisations to develop their own internal design capability through workshop facilitation, coaching, program development and customer-research through my consultancy Sticky Design Studio.

Since 2013, I have run a community of practice called Social Design Sydney, through which I convene events and trainings relating to design and social change.

Interested in how design best functions to support change, I completed my Masters in Design (research) exploring the role of design artefacts for enabling human-centred innovation and the required customer-centric organisational change. Other academic qualifications include degrees in Multi-media, Information Technology and a BA (anthropology, religious studies, psychology and fine arts).

I am a video artist and provide live, improv video content for a few Sydney bands.

I enjoy sharing my practice through writing.

Specialties include: strategic design, service design, systems thinking, design/user research, co-design, workshop facilitation, program management, training, video production & the creation of persuasive design artefacts, tool-kits & frameworks.
