Design and Co-Creation

Designing opportunities for circular business innovation.

The «Seeds of Change» under pressure to collaborate is an important insight of our current situation in organizations and society. We are under pressure to transform how we work together for one planet regeneration and we are also aware of our growing capacities to manage these challenges.

Systems & Design

Design is translating and adding value between systems. The norm has been product or communication design which creates value propositions for market differentiation and a defined ROI over years. There is now more to be done. In team-work we discover and develop intelligence and save resources along the entire value chain. We will use systems mapping, story development/rapid prototyping and design thinking methods to build from insights, work inclusively and amplify for market or organizational impact.   

Collaborating Talent

I work from Impact Hubs and with Collaboratio Helvetica in a professional network including UX/UI designers & developers, dialogue facilitators and social lab partnerships for deep learning and change. This peer network allows me to work «Lean» collaborating with teams and partner organizations. My current sectors of work for UN-SDGs 11-12 #Sustainable Cities-Communities and #Circular Economy include;  local food systems change, reducing traveller impacts, reframing generation ≥55 and accounting tools for sustainable living. 

People & Process

Circular business development begins with telling the stories of company operations, upstream and downstream stakeholders and its mission. But insights come when reframing the stories of materials used, supply flows and processing in a life cycle analysis including human social and environmental impacts. Team members gain insights about their own frameworks through Human Centered Design process for customers. The process supports change management and service design insights together. It’s a collaborative, inclusive and integrating process.
