Ben Pecotich from Dynamic 4 is our Plastic Green Square guest for October. Aaron had a wide ranging chat with Ben covering the foundations of Dynamic 4, what Social Enterprise is all about and how new designers can make themselves stand out in a noisy marketplace.

Plastic Grass Square – S1E7 Ben Pecotich Design And Innovation Director

“More experienced Design Leaders who are recruiting teams don’t hire UX Designers without some kind of slash, like Design Research or Prototyper or Visual Design”

Ben strongly believes that engaging and empowering people is a powerful and sustainable approach to achieving positive change. He’s an active supporter of social enterprise and ways of applying collaborative consumption, collective impact, and other sharing economy principles and practices.

Founder and managing director of Dynamic4 (a 16 year old purpose-driven design & innovation company, and certified B Corp). Co-founder of two social enterprises: Jetpack for Changemakers, and Better Goals.

Sydney.Concepts.Westmead – How User Research informs Design

Sydney.Concepts.Westmead – How User Research informs Design

On Friday, 6th July blueegg Design Director Adam Faulkner presented to Sydney.Concepts.Westmead on How User Research Informs Design.

“It’s about talking to people, picking up the patterns, and seeing how we can use that … if we can see clear patterns, that gives us evidenced based reasoning to make design decisions”

blueegg YouTube channel

The University of Sydney has introduced Sydney Concepts at Westmead, a series of conversations between the university and Westmead precinct staff, students, researchers, industry experts and practitioners. The series aims to foster knowledge sharing and collaborative opportunities, with an emphasis on innovative approaches.

The Westmead Hospital precinct is undergoing significant redevelopment to transform the area into a workable, liveable city. The redevelopment is focused on integrated healthcare, education and research. It aims to move Westmead from being a large hospital to an area that attracts staff, students, residents, researchers and visitors from all over the world.
