2018 is a big year for me. Thirty-three years after founding Mackay Branson design, I am moving from client-focused projects to use my skills with the Design Business Council and The Design Business School - both businesses aimed at bridging the gap between design and business. With both I'm using my design/strategy/writing skills, just for my business rather for others. My first highlight was the launch of the Design Studio Management Program. It's the first course in Australia to teach the skills needed to manage and lead a design studio. It's written for those wanting to get into design, and those within wanting to fast-track their move into management. See
