Chloe will introduce her key design principles along with examples of good practice especially with regards to tackling complex issues in design and working with people with unmet needs.

She will discuss certain approaches such as co-design, emotionally durable design and how she creates design that actually meet peoples needs.

Chloe will use examples from her experience creating Music Memory Box, an award winning product for people living with dementia and their family. She will also talk about Trove, a product for all children but especially for children in care or children who have been adopted.
