Where the voyage began

Meet Bec, our founder and captain who found her passion for Human-Centred Design while consulting at PwC (starting with the firm in London, then moving to Melbourne).

When I first put my oar into the water, I had no idea of the ripples we’d create! A new challenge every day, honestly there’s nothing better.
