Earning my money where my mouth is

14 February, 2012

Over the years on this blog I have banged on about some topics with some regularity:

So, it is with great excitement that I announce I am now a Principal at Design Managers Australia (DMA). DMA has been around since 2003, headed up by the design-talented, raconteurish, cycle-loving, connected-connector and motivational do-er Justin Barrie. We worked together during 2011 and the kindred-design-ship just plain stuck!

What matters to DMA is:

  • Making a difference to people’s lives through services that may or may not even be noticed by them – for all the right reasons
  • Creating change that is needed and that makes things better
  • Bringing together a range of voices and disciplines who can make things happen – not just talk about it, but do it

Which is a pretty good match to what matters to me. It means I now have a design collaborator in my desire to practice service design, and make a difference at community, government, and private sector levels and at design-specialist level.

And I can do cool things like this to celebrate!

DMA: Connecting Canberra, Wellington and Cool!

PS: The above pic is full of Canberran and Wellingtonian landmarks. The reference to ‘cool!’ in the tagline is a reference to our common adjectival refrain ; )

PPS: I’ll still be blogging here, but I’ll also be blogging at DMA: We Think able to talk about real case studies and our practical service design experiences.
