This episode is brought to you by This is Doing - Learn Design and Innovation remotely via online classes
Hello and welcome to another episode of Bringing Design Closer. My name is Gerry Scullion, and I’m a service designer, and founder of This is HCD and CEO of This is Doing - we provide live online design and innovation classes, providing training for service designers, design researchers, product managers, user experience designers and much more.
Today on the show we have Kim Mackenzie Doyle, a name that will be familiar to all of the Irish Design community. Kim is the Former President of the Irish Design Institute and when I say this, I truly mean it, one of the most incredibly forward-thinking individuals in Ireland right now.
Kim works tirelessly on projects that she initiated such as Mind Over Matter, and also Why Design - an initiative that aims to address and improve the ration of men and women in Design. We also speak about Kim’s latest project, The Big Idea, something I am involved with as a judge, and This is HCD and This is Doing are both right behind her on this one - working on the next generation of designers currently in School.
Let’s get into the episode...
