BIG MOTIVE / DAMIAN CRANNEY
Damian Cranney is a designer, entrepreneur and founder of Big Motive, an experience design and innovation company in Belfast. Big Motive works with clients and partners in a wide range of industries locally and internationally. From media to healthcare, workshops to government, their work is a perfect example of how good design and user research can create better products and services.
THE HOLYLAND PROJECT
The Holyland Project is one of a series of interventions happening in the Holyland area in South Belfast. Students from The Graduate School at Queen’s University, organisations such as The Forward South Partnership and the local residents of The Holyland have come together to create projects that will have real benefit to those living and working in the area. The work they are doing is a great example of how entrepreneurial activity can be at a very localised level and community-led, but be of great importance and benefit to developing a neighbourhood and crucially engaging throughout with a human-centred design approach.
With thanks to Briege Arthurs, Ryan Rankin, Margarita Jackson and Nermin Al Sharman for sharing their experiences about community led work in the Holyland area.
