How to radically co-design your life

When Celeste’s good friend suddenly passed away, followed by her grandmother, she was forced to re-evaluate her life. She knew she wanted to escape the traditional way of working - but how?

An experienced and ever-curious designer, Celeste decided to apply some of the co-design tools she used for client projects (from personas to journey maps and speed ideation) to her own life. The experiment sparked a series of radical events, including quitting her 9-5 job at Te Papa, launching StudioC Design, and with her partner, Glen, building a studio in the bush (literally with their own hands).

Celeste recently talked about her inspiring journey at Creative HQ and you can watch her tell her story.
