Lunchtime Talks at the Pervasive Media Studio


Please note: This event took place in Sept 2018

Lunchtime Talks are a series of informal presentations at Watershed's Pervasive Media Studio. They normally take place at 13:00 on a Friday, are free and are open to everybody who is interested in what they do. Come along, bring a sandwich, and get to know more about the Studio community, current and up-coming projects, or residents' work.

In this Lunchtime Talk Chloe Meineck, Studio Resident and founder of design studio, Studio Meineck will discuss her current projects, Music Memory Box and Trove, from conception to customer and everything in between.

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 very specific needs. She will discuss certain approaches such as co-design, emotionally durable design and how she creates design that actually meet peoples needs and ultimately be a product they will want to use and understand how to.

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

Chloe is a designer and social entrepreneur who began Studio Meineck when she was still in her early twenties. Studio Meineck's vision and goal is to be leaders and change makers in product design with a focus on mental health and wellbeing.

The Pervasive Media Studio is located within the Watershed building. Let us know if you'd like a tour and we'll be happy to show you around. Send an email to
