The place to start if you're new to it is with the Lightning Decision Jam.

Here's our story:

  • Since 2014 we have been working across Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

  • We've been using Design Thinking to design workshops that help organisations communicate, collaborate and get on the same page before commencing the work.

  • These life-sized posters are purposely designed for team collaboration, decision making and prioritisation.

  • The end goal is always for everyone to be on the align, agree and be on the same page having considered perspective from across the team or organisation!

  • We've been doing this across retail, mining, technology, health, government, startup, building and education.

The typical types of workshops include:

  • The Lightning Innovation Jam

Hello, it's nice to meet you!




Here's a quick background summary.


I commenced a career in full-stack software development and learned Machine Language, COBOL, Pascal, Visual Basic, Active Server Pages, HTML, CSS, Javascript, VBScript, Java and .Net. After a decade of this I transitioned into Automated Load and Performance Testing using Mercury Load Runner and Rational Functional Tester. I led the introduction of Automated Testing Tools to SEEK and moved onto a role as a Technical Business Analysis. This was short-lived as I was quickly moved into a design role after demonstrating rapid prototyping skills. In my first design role I led the design of a proprietary CRM and two customer facing websites. Telstra appointed me their lead UX designer for the Telstra Business Portal and later that year they successfully delivered the experience. Keen to take a break to re-evaluate life, love and purpose, I spent time renovating houses while writing my first book titled "UX Like a BOSS".  A new found thirst for business saw me launch MyWare Australia Pty Ltd, a new training business in User Experience Design. In writing the book, launching the business and running trainings across the east coast of Australia, I discovered Design Thinking while creating a workshop for UX design. I haven't looked back. The business was restructured and Design Moshpit Pty Ltd (DM) was born.


Design Moshpit create Design Thinking Billboards. These life-sized wall posters systematically help project teams to communicate, collaborate, make group decisions, prioritise and most importantly, ‘get on the same page’ prior to commencing project work. 

If you're keen to drive innovation, transformation and collaboration in your organisation, then we should chat.

Best wishes for your life,
