The growth of CIID Consulting this year has also increased the number of sporty people in our office—with all the fresh talent we decided to take on the DHL Stafetten. CIID Consulting put together a solid showing at this Danish tradition and braved the stormy weather with some tasty burgers.
On Monday evening I attended a Nordic startup event that was been hosted in Lemonsqueeze’s incubator space, where CIID is currently based in New York. The event was initiated to provide a platform for leading Nordic startup organizations to meet Brooklyn based entrepreneurs.
We’re proud to announce that Martina Pagura, one of our lead prototypers has been selected to jump on stage and share her thoughts at Pragma Conference this October, the major event dedicated to iOS and OS X development in Italy.
We had a tight turn-around on a recent project and, instead of our typical face-to-face process, we conducted Skype interviews. People-centred-research is central to our design process and we always craft methods to best set the scene for what we want to learn—these Skype interviews were no exception. While not an ideal platform for user research, here are our key learnings about making the most of virtual interviews.
This week myself and John Lynch from Future Cities Catapult have been teaching a one week course on Applied Service Design Techniques, as part of CIID’s summer school.
While most of Copenhagen last night were attending Roskilde (Denmark’s famous music festival), Francesca and Eilidh from the consulting team decided to take on a slightly different event!
I am a designer. I’m in love with circus. What do my favorite things have in common?
On the surface it appears like nothing. But if you take a closer look you might think differently….. You get to a circus show and there is a sudden burst of MAGIC!
We are super excited to send you news about the upcoming “Design Matters” conference about digital experiences and game-changing design that will be happening this Fall in Copenhagen.
“It has been and still is a huge challenge for me as a designer to work on a topic like Dementia – with no prior experience other than from my own family, I’ve run into hurdles along the way of my research – participants from time to time forget that we’ve spoken before or even who I am – that’s one example of a challenge I’ve had to take in consideration when designing my research.” Rita Maldonado Branco about her codesign work with people with dementia.
