Directions

Better. Simpler. Smarter.

Common Good is a strategic design agency.

We partner with small to large-scale organisations to identify and realise opportunities that re-imagine and design experiences that meet customer and business needs. We develop organisational capability, encouraging teams to experiment with diverse approaches and emerging technologies.

Research & Discovery

Discovery enables teams to confidently set off down the path to better, simpler and more complete design solutions. We help clients understand and identify market trajectories, emerging technologies, as well as user expectations and behaviours. Analysing and structuring research and insight to facilitate informed direction setting. Outcomes are meaningful, accessible, and most importantly, actionable.

Experience & Service Design

Organisations of all sizes need to adapt to the pace of evolving customer expectations and digital channels. Our user-centred design approach for products, services and experiences create tangible artefacts that visualise the end-to-end experience for the customer; as well as the business processes, operations and systems. Service mapping allows clients to understand a more holistic view in delivering an experience.

Rapid Prototyping

Proof of concept and prototyping underpins our evidential, learn-by-doing approach to design at Common Good. Our project teams work with practical tools and lean techniques to help test risky assumptions and continuously improve ideas. Prototyping communicates intent to stakeholders. It makes strategy a reality and is a valuable co-creation technique for aligning teams and understanding users needs.
