Hi, I'm Adam B Cochrane.
Feel free to ask me about ...
Designing kickass services.
From Indigenous Australians to corporate Austrians I have had the privilege to work around the world with diverse teams & complicated problems. I have helped these teams create simple, fun and delightful services that are radically user focused. Learn more about service design by Yosef Shuman.
Currently, you can see my work in Service Design at IXDS
and previously, at Factory Berlin. You can also see my work in design research and group facilitation at Swinburne University, Service design and process creation at Goodpatch, and service development at Telekom's Creation Center. I have also worked on projects like Mimi, Vimeda, Paintpac & Smart Art.
Mastering Design Thinking
I help teams and individuals to understand, and take advantage of Human Centred Design practices. I build up people through one-on-one trainings, group coaching and facilitation of workshops. For example design jams and product hackathons. I help to instill a unifying passion that gets teams to create great experience for their users.
And all things coffee.
The start of every great day and every great conversation is coffee.
Talking about it, making it, and appreciating it. I am also a professional Barista with 8+ years experience, so I'm always open for a debate or discussion about the holy beans.
This is just one of the many things other I love to do; hackathons, conferences, and summer camps, are also on the list too.
If you want to know more, let’s meet for a coffee!
The cheer squad.
