    Diarmuid Gavin 'Digging into the world of Garden Design and what Service Design can learn from it'

    Diarmuid Gavin 'Digging into the world of Garden Design and what Service Design can learn from it'

    In this episode, I speak with Irish garden designer and tv personality - Diarmuid Gavin. He has presented gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show on nine occasions from 1995 to 2016 - He has also authored or co-authored at least ten gardening-related books.

    For regular listeners, you will be familiar with a recent episode I did with 16-time Grammy award-winning producer, Rafa Sardina - well this episode is continuing on that trend. I am really keen to explore other disciplines to see how they work to solve complex problems and also approach their work. I see gardening and working with nature as a direct parallel to working within organisations. Thinking like this, I was excited to speak with Diarmuid to see how he explores designing for the future and chat at length about external factors that could hinder the designer's vision. 

    Diarmuid was a great guest - and wanted to give a big shout out to his wonderful Instagram page where he answers questions regularly through his Live events. So if you are interested and getting started with anything garden related - Diarmuids yer man!

    Donna Spencer 'Jumping into the world of Information Architecture'

    This episode was brought to you by https://www.thisisdoing.com – learn new skills in Design & Innovation via live online classrooms with the worlds best trainers

    I am delighted to welcome Melbournian, Donna Spencer, a name that should be familiar to many Information Architects around the world. Donna has over 20-years experience, and has lived and breathed the full lifecycle and has seen strategic design evolve. Donna has written 3 books ‘A Practical Guide to IA’ ‘Card Sorting’ and Copy for the Web, and as you will learn in this episode, has two more in the pipes - 

    In this episode, myself and Donna speak openly about what an information architect does, something some of you may already know, but it’s interesting to hear from Donnas perspective how IA sits within the world of UX and also how it can benefit anyone in the delivery of services. Information is critical and we speak about what makes IA skills really really important in an ever-changing world.

    Pinar Guvenc 'Understanding Architecture's role in designing inclusive spaces'

    This episode was brought to you by https://www.thisisdoing.com - learn new skills in Design & Innovation via live online classrooms with the worlds best trainers

    Today on the show, is Pinar Guvenc, Partner at SOUR, an architectural and design firm based in Brooklyn, New York - SOUR is a play on the words social and innovation - and their purpose is to responsibly use Design to build a better future. We get into the what the role of Architecture is and how it connects with services, and how the discipline of architecture has evolved over the last few decades and how in reality, the architects are caught between money-hungry property developers, who ultimately hold not only the purse strings but also much of the control in what is possible. We speak about accessibility in physical places, and what needs to change in order for architects to deliver more inclusive experiences. It’s a pretty free-flowing conversation and we covered quite a bit of ground. Let’s get into the episode.
