πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» I’m a UX/Service Designer working (primarily) on complex projects and multi-partner initiatives. Have been operating in dynamic, fast-paced, innovation-driven environments – in and with diverse organisations of all sizes since day #1 of my career. The 3 principles that (currently) guide my work are:

Global design is local design.

Awareness of the socio-cultural context in which a design must operate is essential. Otherwise you’ve invested in failure.

Uncertainty is (quite) predictable.

Knowledge is incomplete, things change all the time. Space for uncertainty should be a built-in feature, not an afterthought.

No fear and/or no mercy for complexity.

Systems and products are increasingly more complex and interconnected – just like the world we live in. We should embrace it and avoid the temptation of latching on to simplistic solutions.
