Hello! I’m Kate. I am interested in exploring ways we can design a better world. Having fun is a core value of mine and something I try to bring to all aspects of my work. I am particularly interested in designing for positive social change, and I love to create playful ways to build emotional intelligence and resilience.
Having previously worked as an industrial designer, I currently work as a strategic and social designer in the Design Innovation Research Centre at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). I also teach design studies at UTS, whilst pursuing my own design practice. Fostering good mental health is something I am particularly passionate about, and in 2015 I wrote and published a pocket-sized book called ‘The Little Book for Big Worries’.
