When Dori Tunstall told me that the reason why we design is to make thoughts tangible, I had an idea I would be in for a fantastic interview. Dori is the associate professor of design anthropology at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia. Through her work, she shows how the processes and artefacts of design help define what it means to be human.

Our interview started off with a brief overview of the sphere of design anthropology, along with a tour of her professional career which has taken her all around the world. We also talked about the U.S. National Design Policy Initiative and on ways designers can get involved with influencing policy on a local level. Dori is doing some really fascinating and incredible work that’s worth recognizing, so I’m honored to be able to share this talk with you. You’ll want to take notes for this one!


And of course, much thanks to Creative Market, a marketplace that sells beautiful, ready-to-use design content from thousands of independent creators around the globe.
