About

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

I hold a Masters in Service Design from the Politecnico di Milano, and as a result was lucky enough to experience working at IDEO Munich where I could fully immerse myself in designing solutions where human experience, strategy, creativity, research and innovation intersect. My happy place.

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 over time. The most recent example was as the Lead Strategic Designer for the National Australia Bank in Melbourne.

I’ve been fortunate over the last 12 years as a consultant to work with some innovative, big-thinking people and organisations 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.

When I'm not improving or innovating around processes, systems or experiences, I love making red wine, snowboarding and improving my Italian.

Testimonials

I want to share my passion in the power of human-centred design to improve and innovate - for everyone's benefit.
