Designer ←→ Design Consultant ←→ Consultant

A lot of the design consulting work I did at projekt202 and MU/DAI→Drawn prior to joining the Design Institute, in a big way, focused on designing culture and applying design, systems, and futures thinking and methods to the design of software based services and products.

A big focus of mine at and outside of work is on the creation of processes supporting the production of artifacts. Sometimes that takes the form of a community or a collective. Other times this manifests in a component library, a UI Kit, or establishing tooling pipelines, production processes, and cross disciplinary collaboration standards.
