Human-Centred Design Podcast

Human-centred design

Gerry Scullion, the founder of This is HCD, the global human-centred design podcast and international design community of change-makers, and Founder and CEO of This is Doing.com is talking with Christof Zürn

They chat about the interrelationship between Design and Music and what Design can learn from thinking like a musician. Gerry, as an ‘ex’ musician and songwriter himself, sees the world of Design very much within the same family as music.

They drill a little deeper into the Music Thinking Framework and learn more about the value it can bring to teams and organisations.
