Fostering Design Culture
How Can Public Sector Clients Develop Their Design Ambitions?
This Practice Note explores how design culture can be articulated and nurtured within public commissioning organisations. Drawing on learnings from a year-long placement in Transport for London by Tom Sykes (April 2018 - 2019), it explores what design excellence means in practice and how this can be translated into replicable processes and quality design outcomes.
The Practice Note draws together insights from a series of facilitated team sessions and uses these to produce advice to help build design culture within the public sector. It is accompanied by a series of practical facilitator notes which can be adopted or adapted by authorities.
