Case Studies

A list of case studies, showing design at its best, but some of the dark-side of design  too!

2) SPRINT's finest hour at Salford: the Contact Centre

3) A design atrocity: the Vetting and Barring Scheme

4) Ensuring Entitlements to the Poor in Rural India: auditing payments with a mobile phone app.

5) Redesigning ambulance services in London and Manchester: A tale of two cities
