Doing Good (Design) in Government

Kate Conrick Service & Experience Designer Oakton

It can often be difficult to see what true transformation of government or public services really looks like and it can be very challenging to make a change, and see the impact you're making on people's lives. But it's worth it. I'm here to talk about what we can do, and how we can make real change - even with the machinery of government sometimes acting against us.

Kate Conrick

Kate Conrick is a digital designer and strategist with broad experience in both the private and public sectors, with an overwhelming desire to create amazing experiences.

She values the power of technology to make real changes in people's lives, and believes that large organisations can successfully transition to a contemporary digital context. She works with real users and data to make smart decisions and design services that work in an increasingly digital reality.

She also gets in the occasional sneaky illustration piece, with work featured in publications such as Curvy and Frankie.
