I’m Emma Jefferies a design researcher and have been starting to moonlight as The Design Doctor and I’m in the process of forming a global team to foster creative practices. I’m currently on an International Design Walkabout and co-writing a book called ‘Design Transitions’ to be published Autumn 2013. Following my fantastic experience working with DesignThinkers in Amsterdam and Norway, in March 2012, my walkabout continued in Brazil with Voël in Belo Horizonte. There, I led the development of a social innovation initiative called Mozaiko. I thank them both for being truly inspirational!!
In October 2012, the third leg of the walkabout started at Idiom and Dream:In project in India – It was a life-changing experience! If you have not heard of the Dream:In check it out it is amazing. Back in the UK for now – reflecting on the trip so far, book rewriting and exploring new opportunities for the fourth leg of the walkabout! During this I will reflect with the inspirational people I meet through the use of video and blog.
