The medical professional, the design innovator and the collective

Emergency Design Collective

Covid-19 inspired innovation:
Generating solutions that can be immediately helpful and implemented by people, patients and healthcare providers as we find new ways of working, caring for others and accessing critical tools.

The Emergency Design Collective are a group of designers and innovators uniquely skilled in solving abstract challenges rapidly, tangibly, and collaboratively. The collective’s main projects so far include organising and producing PPE, Clinical Workflows, Blood Donations and Communications.
