When life gives you lemons… you throw a party

I’ve heard numerous tales about the famous Red Badger summer parties, and this year I was lucky enough to not only attend, but also take on the challenge of branding the weekend. The Badgers and their plus ones were flown off to Malaga for a weekend of music, massages and mojitos.

User Centred Problem Solving with Anthony Nolan

We ran a two-day training session for Anthony Nolan to help the organisation adopt a more human-centric approach. The workshop was attended by representatives from different areas of the Anthony Nolan charity, from Technology to Social Media. To make the training relevant to the day-to-day work of the team, we invited patients and donors to share their experience with Anthony Nolan.

A labour of love

This a short blog about a small job, but one that plays well one of our guiding principles, to “Find a way”. We wanted to invite people to a day at the Wimbledon Championships, but to tell the story right we need to start at the beginning.

Designing Pride into the experience

Building the Pride in London app gave Red Badger the incredible opportunity to deliver an experience that would reach the community that make Pride happen year round. In late January, we kicked off the project with a workshop to define our product vision.

Branding the Pride in London app

We decided early on that we’d need to do some brand thinking around the app. The Pride in London brand is well established, but it has not been designed specifically with digital applications in mind. Together with Pride in London we worked together to ensure clarity and focus for us and a richer, more cohesive experience for the user.

Information Architecture in 2018

The role of an IA has changed over time, with its popularity decreasing and the broader title of user experience (UX) increasing. Whilst still being a specialist role, it is more frequently seen as part of a broad set of skills that are used by product and UX designers.

Launching Red Badger Design School

What is the Red Badger Design School and why have we launched it? To create an opportunity for all of our teams to develop their design thinking, regardless of their role. We believe this helps our cross-functional teams deliver better results for our clients and we love doing it. See the pictures here.

Consultant skill 3: Inspire divergent thinking by asking

Most management consultants hone their skills in deductive, convergent thinking. Considering pros and cons and making informed decisions. Design consultants bring another skill to the table. Divergent thinking aims to create better options in the first place, before narrowing down and making decisions in the convergent phase. It requires an empathetic, generative, and optimistic approach.

Consultant skill 2: A more intentional inquiry

When a problem is initially stated, everyone assumes they understand it in the same way. That might be false because we tend to unconsciously fill the gaps with our own projections, and colour in the words with our own point of view. My aim for this article is to show how we can be more effective and intentional with our questions.

Circular is the new straight

We've seen a massive increase in the number of disruptive technologies emerging over the past few years. New tools, new tech and a new workforce have all fuelled this - we're no longer designing for a single, lonely user, but for an array of globally interconnected people. 

As this scale changes, so must our design.
