Consultancy Projects

Since establishing Design Research Associates in 2006, I’ve worked with a diverse range of small to large organisations.

Projects include AI, built environment (aged care, healthcare, facade colour, interior design strategies), branding and logo design. I focus on evidence-based colour psychology and colour strategies plus environmental visual literacy. I have also worked on textile and product design, and frequently deliver workshops, seminars and university lectures.
