Welcome to DESIGNEDIN! We empower children and young people through Child-Centred Design, Co-Design and Digital Literacy by amplifying their future and shaping new worlds. With an ethical, human- and care-centric approach we use design methodologies aligned with child’s best interest. From idea and concept, production, execution and implementation, throughout the entire life cycle of a product or service, we create products, services, experiences, indoor and outdoor spaces and interfaces tailored to children and young people and in accordance with their rights, extending their future and shaping new worlds through design, on a child first based approach.

With a strong background on innovation and technology we work to ensure the best strategy for establishing the relationship between children, their rights and their digital well-being.
Child-centred design goes beyond functionality, it’s a commitment to putting children’s needs, rights and experiences at the forefront of the technological development.

If your organisation has a genuine interest in making the world meaningful and welcoming to children, parents and other stakeholders, we have the tools, knowledge and methodologies that will help you create an impactful change. Through design thinking, co-creation and co-participatory methodologies, we shape new worlds and a more sustainable, resilient and inclusive future.

START YOUR CHILD-FIRST JOURNEY

What can you find here?

A little bit about me and how it all started, posts and reviews where I share articles of my research, ideas and projects. You can also find important resources I compile along the journey. Soon a design shop will be available!

“If children are not designed into our cities, they are designed out.”

The name DESIGNEDIN came from a quote by author and activist George Monbiot that particularly resonated with me. He said that if we forget to design for children in our cities, it’s as if we’re excluding them: “If children are not designed into our cities, they are designed out”. Children need to explore the city, be part of the community, contribute and discover their own abilities.
