“We need to build an app.” Maybe you do, and maybe you don’t. Take a few steps back and think about what would work best for your user. Chances are, whatever you create will need to be meaningful, bring value and be online.
We often don’t associate plastic with the oil industry. But it’s a massive market, and one that Big Oil is pumping billions of dollars into. Plastic is a substance with magical properties alright, but when it’s washed up on a beach, we see the dark magic for what it is.
I hate single-use plastic, and how its waste is a problem pushed down to the consumer. It’s where legislation is so important. One of my biggest Brexit fears is that UK standards will lag behind the EU, because in a small capitalist state, big businesses call the shots. This is the path of least resistance, and we’ve been here before. Illustration originally created for #breakfreefromplastic
You’d know that I once appeared on a TV comedy show in a police line-up of bald men… This is one of my favourite icebreakers. It gets people talking about themselves, but heading straight for the quirks (We’ve all got them!)

How shall we do our research and product building? Shall we do it to the users? Or do it with them? I wonder how many ‘orgs’ start with the intention of doing it with users, but inevitably end up doing it to them?
Is it – A) – Our context is totally unique, therefore the solution required will be bespoke or B) Another organisation has had a similar problem, and figured out an effective solution. If only somebody out there was collecting these service “recipes” so others can remix them. Oh, they already are for the charity sector? Thank you @wethecatalysts !
