About

I’m Gina, a service designer with a background in the arts, media and large corporate organisations.


Discovering Human Centred Design tools and techniques during my Masters in Service Design at the Politecnico di Milano has allowed me to be immersed more deeply in designing solutions where strategy, creativity, research and innovation intersect.

I love getting stuck into strategy and taking a big picture view of things to ensure that single projects or pieces of work can leverage other solutions or address multiple challenges at one time.

I’ve been fortunate over the last 10 years as a consultant to work with some innovative, big-thinking people and to have had exposure to a wide variety of industries and topics; from entrepreneurs and global diplomacy to Start-Ups, Banking, Retail, Open Data, Charities, Energy, Education, Justice, Health, Tax, Transport and Social Welfare reform.

I love collaborating with other people who are passionate about positive impact.
