Welcome to another episode of Bringing Design Closer. My name is Gerry Scullion and I’m a service design trainer and practitioner based in Dublin City, Ireland. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Bringing Design Closer, this podcast is focused on uncovering insights from thought leaders around the world and learnings about bringing design into organisations with a view to helping both practitioners and organisations to become more design-led. In this episode, I caught up with Jonathon Colman, a senior design manager at Intercom here in Ireland. Jon has had a distinguished career and have led teams of content strategists and organisations such as Facebook, but also served, interestingly, as a peace core volunteer in Burkina Faso in West Africa. In this episode, we discuss what it takes to build a stellar design team, and what he’s learned over the years as being important ingredients that led to that success.

    Hello and welcome to another episode of ‘This is HCD'. My name is Gerry Scullion and I'm a service design principal now based in Dublin, Ireland. Recently I caught up with Sarah Richards in London. Sarah's a founder of Content Design in London, an organisation focused on delivering content designed training courses as well as working with organisations to help build the content design function internally.

    Sarah previously held the role of head content design within the GDS, the government digital services team for the gov.uk. And in this conversation we actually go back in time to discuss what that was like, working with people who had no idea what content design was and how Sarah worked around that. Also joining in in this conversation was Joris Beets, international service design director for EY Seren in London.

With a client list that looks like the most celebrated artists of the last 100 years, that include Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Dr Dre, Beyonce, Stevie Wonder, Celine Dion, and everyone’s favourite singer, Susan Boyle. 

    We chat about how the craft of songwriting has evolved from the early 90’s on what working with Michael Jackson looked like, to how the industry validates songs. We chat about how technology disrupted and ultimately killed the large recording budgets that typically ran for months or years in some instances, and to where Rafa is currently now, mid-pandemic, producing globally via live recording sessions in the top studios in the world.

    In this episode, I speak with Buelani Mfaco, a South African asylum seeker and activist based in Ireland - he’s a spokesperson for MASI, the movement of asylum seekers in Ireland and is an active voice in shedding light from within one of Irelands Direct Provision centres, Knocklisheen in Co. Limerick.

    To give some background to this system, in 1991, only 9-people sought asylum in Ireland, compared to 3883 in 1997. This caused alarm to the Irish and the Irish Government at the time, But rather tackle and provide a safe refuge for these people who are vulnerable, they created this scheme to detract or reframe that the Irish “social welfare system was in some way attracting asylum seekers to this state”.

    Some people listening may ask how this topic is related to Design - it is absolutely interrelated. The awful experiences that Bulelani and the thousands of people in the Direct Provision scheme are facing, as a direct result of a system that was created by the Irish Government in 1997. 

    This episode is an example of a system that was NOT created from a human-centred perspective - not in the slightest. As an Irish person, I am extremely embarrassed that this scheme is still in existence. An updated new Irish Government has committed to dissolving Direct Provision, but we discuss in this episode what that might look like.

    Welcome to World Wide Waste, a podcast about how digital is killing the planet and what to do about it. What is quality when it comes to web design, web development, web management? How do we know the customer is having a quality experience? How do we know as a web professional that we are doing a quality job? These are questions Karen Peeters, General Manager, Omni-Channel Management at Toyota Europe has been asking. I must apologise that the quality of the recording of Karen's voice is very poor. We had technical difficulties. However, the quality of the information that Karen delivers is extremely high. In fact, it is some of the most important insights that I have heard in 25 years of working in web management.

    Olive Minor 'Covid-19 What the anthropologist sees'

    It seems that any Zoom call we are having now - be it business related or with friends and family - we have to navigate a beginning of this call about how we're all experiencing lockdown with COVID-19. What is becoming clear is that many of us are all having the same everyday cultural experiences, which in turn makes it more difficult to share our stories about our lives - homeschooling, baking, exercise, hair getting long, toilet paper. Stories are central to cultural capital, but when they are so obvious and similar, this signifies an era that our lives have been impacted on greatly. We are living in a dystopian reality where those everyday norms that we have taken for granted for decades and centuries are overnight classified as social stigma, pollutions of what is morally right. Sitting on a park bench talking to friends face to face, playing basketball, going to a funeral - our physical bodies have become objects of morality. 

    In this episode, I unpack many of these contradictions of social norms with fellow anthropologist, Olive Minor. Olive lives in Seattle, and previously worked for Oxfam in West Africa, where she used her anthropological expertise amongst many things to understand how culture shaped attitudes to Ebola. She describes the work she did there and then we use some of her experiences to understand the current cultural landscape related to COVID-19. Let's get into the conversation. Welcome to the Decoding Culture podcast.

    Hello and welcome to Bringing Design Closer, my name is Gerry Scullion and I am a service designer and trainer based in Dublin City Ireland. Bringing Design Closer is a podcast dedicated on shining the light on the complexities of embedding the design within organisations. 

    In this episode, I speak with Chris Gray, former content moderator for CPL a service provider and content moderation organisation for many of the large tech businesses. We speak about Chris’s experience moderating for Facebook, what that looks like on a granular level, in terms of the processes involved in a ‘day in the life’ type conversation. We speak about what led to the final days of Chris’s employment and also what followed for Chris in terms of impact on his life - that’s resulted in Chris taking legal action and bringing Facebook (along with many others) to court. 

    I should point out that there are topics in this conversation that may act as a trigger for some people, and if listening with children, may not be appropriate.
