COVID-19 Design Taskforce

The COVID-19 Design Taskforce brings together a group of Australian design professionals offering their expertise on a voluntary basis to assist businesses, government agencies and the wider community address the challenges they face as a result of COVID-19.

We are experiencing unprecedented challenges with both immediate and long-term impacts. A design-led approach can help better understand the challenge and provide a creative approach to the problem-solving process. The core purpose of the assigned Taskforce will be to provide strategic, design-led input and to use design as a tool to help address these challenges. 

Good Design Australia invites Australian businesses and/or government agencies to share their most immediate challenges (overseas applications will also be considered). Taskforce members will be assigned to these challenges to ensure the most relevant design expertise can be applied with a focus on response and recovery. 

The Taskforce will offer round-table discussions and input to help re-frame the challenge and identify possible opportunities and solutions. Taskforce members will offer expertise in (but not limited to) the following areas:

– Design Strategy
– Business Model DesignProduct Design and Development
– Service and Systems Design
– Social Impact Design
– Sustainable Design
