GOOD is coming to London again!

As the founder and partner of REACH network, STBY is happy to announce that following on the success of previous related events around the world, GOOD is coming to London again! This 1-day conference, titled GOOD19, will take place on 27 June 2019.  Registration for tickets has opened, with attractive early bird rates. Hope to see you there!

GOOD = Great Outdoors of Design

GOOD conferences bring together design researchers from around the world to share experiences and jointly reflect on organisations, economies and societies in transition, in relation to the strategic roles design researchers play in making these changes happen. More and more organisations engage design researchers to help them transform from being internally focused to interacting more collaboratively and sustainably with the outside world. Human-centered, ethnographic research and design-driven service innovation play an important role in this transformation, encapsulating both global and local perspectives in a multinational and multidisciplinary approach.

Who is it for?

GOOD19 is the perfect event for early adopters and thought leaders with an interest in engaging with the latest thoughts and views on global design research. They will encounter inspiring examples, engaging discussions and new ideas in this event. Previous audiences included design and research practitioners (both in-house and consultants), managers, academics, and students – especially early adopters who are keen to exchange their points of view with other thought leaders in the field. All benefitting from reflective practices that sharpen their thinking towards important implications for their practice.

When and where?

GOOD19 is a full day conference, taking place on 27 June in London. The program offers a mix of presentations on international case studies and extensive discussions in small groups among the audience. Super early bird tickets will be for sale at £150 each. More information with a detailed programme and an option to register will follow soon. Follow us on twitter to be the first one to hear more about it! @reachnetworkHCD

A New Breed of Design Research Tools

Gone are the days of lugging around clunky recorders, hefty cameras and brick-like hard drives to interviews and observation sites. The design researchers of today need only bring along a smartphone hooked up to a few complementary gadgets and software to capture and save quality audio, video and images.

Rigorous documentation: A research superpower

When research activities get going in earnest, a lot is produced. If treated too casually, the mass of audio files and transcripts, flip-overs and mini-posters full of post-its, photos, interview notes and feedback mails can quickly turn into a massive hairball that no-one can unpick.

What Design Can Do For The Climate

How can designers tackle a problem as complex as climate change? That was the question we were faced with when we partnered with What Design Can Do…

Lead… and let go

In our projects we often help clients to innovate by doing design research together. This usually includes qualitative research and co-creation…
