faculty

Our key staff are:  Fraser Bruce, Professor Tom Inns, Dr Catriona Macaulay, Professor Mike Press and  Hazel White:

We believe in breaking down the boundaries between teaching, research and consultancy, between students, faculty and those ‘outside the academy’, between thinking and doing. Our mission is to create a vibrant space where all with a stake in the future of design for services can gather, act and reflect, consolidate knowledge and share.

We have published on design management, co-design, human-centred design, design ethnography, design management and strategy domains and are involved in the development of service design and allied methods in the UK through both research and consultation. Past and ongoing projects have engaged with a variety of public, private and third sector organisations and companies. We have developed new co-design method RIP + MIX with T- Labs, Deutsche Telekom and developed it for use in the public sector in Transforming Demand for Outpatient Services for the Scottish Government and the 14 NHS Scotland Boards.  Who Cares for the Carers was an Intel sponsored comparative ethnographic study of the experience of being a carer in India and Finland.

Hazel White is director of the Master of Design for Services Programme where graduates learn together in a studio setting applying design thinking, methods and strategies to real world problems. Hazel runs the semester 2 module:  Strategic Information Design – exploring methods of using information and data to tell stories to aid decision-making. She also leads Mindful Design Practice and Realisation and Communication, semester 2 and 3 modules where students develop their individual Masters projects.

Hazel is interested in how design tools can help everyone imagine and co-create  better ways of working and living.  Her recent research, design and consultancy includes work for NHS Scotland and the Scottish Government, The Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS), Deutsche Telekom, Berlin. Hazel White is currently partnered with two European University research teams on an EU FP7 bid to share knowledge on the value of Service Design to SMEs. You can hear Hazel talk about some of these projects here.
