Stephen's unique approaches to design strategy and research—which he calls "precision inspiration"—helps organizations devise new ways of improving people's lives.
As Harmonic Design's Head of Design Research, Stephen ensures our practitioners bring both rigor and adaptability to our engagements. He believes the means are as important as the end, and strives to discover rewarding new ways to work together.
Stephen’s primary passion is studying philosophy and social sciences, and connecting what he learns with his design work. After 25+ years of work in many design disciplines, Stephen is convinced design extends far beyond what most people suspect. Get to know him, and you will also start to see many intractable problems become soluble when they are re-framed as design problems.
