To the point and delightful video making co-design simple by Think Public.

I actually  had a discussion yesterday with someone about co-design.  It struck me though that the term is still very loose and can be used in multiple ways.  Or perhaps it is not clear what it means.  It is not participatory design, becauseit is involving the stakeholders and other affiliated professionals other than just end users.  Is co-design about the project creators (the designers and developers) meeting with everyone all together in one place like in Panda Island?…or can co-design take place with individual meetings and the information compiled later?

I’m excited about my new project because I finally feel it is a perfect (collaboration pending) example of co-design.  I am hoping to work with my end users, the commuters, transport stakeholders, councils, cycling enthusiasts.  And I am hoping my central platform is the blog.  Watch this space.
