Time to think like a designer.
Design thinking enables project teams and organisations to be creative and innovative. It is a simple method with amazing potential for anyone willing to learn.
Creativity is a process and great ideas do not fall from the sky. They develop over time. Learn to fail fast and discover what is possible once you get past your comfort zone.
Design-led work for major international brands
Design is about problem solving, developing human-centred solutions and technical skillset to enable the end goal to be reached.
While delivering projects for global brands, I have been able to expand my experience, knowledge and cultural acuity, and hone my innovative approach using a toolkit that includes effective project management skills and design thinking principles.
I have worked with corporate, government and NGO sectors across various industries and markets including in the United Kingdom, Canada, Poland, the United States, Australia, China, Norway, Germany and the Middle East.
Back in Montreal I was managing projects for the International Council of Design. In the recent years I have been working from London for Royal Bank of Scotland Innovation Centre, Coutts Private Bank, The Coca-Cola Company and Fidelity International managing digital and service design projects, developing internal service design capability.
Some examples of my design-led work are presented below.
