RE-THINK. RE-FRAME. RE-IMAGINE

A Year of Resilience

Is there a better time than now to illustrate the importance of innovative practices in the face of uncertainty?

The last 18 months have forced a lot of us to take a step back and assess our approach to challenging circumstances.

At DFM, we took this opportunity to embrace resilience and continue to convert our expertise into action. We remained curious and open to new opportunities and experimentation, seeking new ideas from a variety of perspectives. We directed our focus towards the future, imagining the possibilities of inclusive design, design for science and technology and innovation ecosystems.

Our new publication, Re-Think, Re-Frame, Re-Imagine, highlights the different avenues in which we applied this mindset, from our student and industry projects, professional workshops, community-based activities, and our latest research.

Discover our insights in our new publication, available online now.

CREATING THE CONDITIONS FOR INNOVATION

The business and R&D landscape of Australia is rapidly changing and we believe that the only way to stay ahead of the curve is to use design thinking and co-creation methods to discover new offerings.

Our interdisciplinary teams work together on real world projects, with local and global partners, using human centered design methods to co-create extraordinary insights and outcomes. This diversity of minds, skills, and experience drives R&D capability and impact.
