WHO SOLD OUR FUTURE?‘The Future’ is packaged and sold to us by media, technology marketing, cinema, pop culture, etc... But how can we imagine it ourselves?
Working as a design researcher, I aim to bring communities, users and other groups together to share their present experiences and activate their imagination toward preferable futures.
I do this through collaborative workshops, (qualitative) design research and visual artefacts & experiences. Usually, in my work I apply a participatory and thinking-through-making mindset. Here are some examples what I do:
☞ Desk and primary research (trends, emerging signals, present and future behaviours);
☞ Co-creation workshops that catalyse community building and participatory decision making;
☞ (co-) Creation of Future scenarios that explore opportunities, implications and concerns;
☞ Design of communication materials and experiences that inspire action today;
