"Double Diamond" design process by Vika Nightingale

In October Near Now (design and technology commissioning, producing and development programme) with Snook (service design agency) put together a two-day workshop for a cohort of the MBA students from Loughborough University. 

The aim of the workshop was to implement various techniques from design practice to address issues in social care, civil engineering and finance. A prominent approach on the day was the Double Diamond process.

Expert Workshop on Creative Visiting by Vika Nightingale


It was been a pleasure to take part in a workshop on museum and gallery visiting empowered by technology and the concept of gift-giving. 

The workshop was led by Lesley Fosh 

a PhD candidate in the Mixed Reality Lab and Horizon Centre for Doctoral Training at the University of Nottingham, whose research looks at the design of mobile visiting experiences for museums and art galleries ( both personalised and supportive of group visiting), combining human-computer interaction with museum studies.

Teamed with several arts and business professionals (the Creative Quarter, University of Nottingham, New Art Exchange, Nottingham Castle), various problem-solving, concept and business development activities constituted the day.
