Ipek Altunmaral

I am  a service designer and researcher living in London. I set up my design consultancy company Crayon Club Limited (www.crayonclub.co.uk) in 2011 and since I have been working as user experience designer and workshops facilitator. I have worked within different industries varying from; telecoms, banking, publishing, entertainment and online education.

 In November 2014 I founded Design for Good to explore ways design could help contribute creating and measuring social change. I am interested in using design thinking methods and collaborative workshop approaches as an enabler of innovation for students in complex socio-political and economical contexts. I am looking to collaborate with design educators and understand the design processes in different continents. Follow me on Twitter, and Instagram. I occasionally contribute to designorate as an author.
