2018 was a big year. Thirty-three years after founding Mackay Branson design, I moved 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. I launched the Design Studio Management Program – 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
