I’ve been thinking about how to market my consulting practice better (yes, I know it needs it’s own voice outside of this space.) I’ve been trying to describe all weekend to people at RemixSouth what I want to be doing and I think I’ve been getting better at it. So here is my latest version:
Dave Malouf Design (DMD) is a consulting practice that works towards helping organizations amplify their creativity so that the quantity & quality of their creative practice has the largest impact across the organization.
DMD does this by customizing a researched approach to your unique organizational culture that does the following:
- Help existing creative talent through training and mentorship that brings them up to date on working in the new multi-disciplinary practice required by the level of complexity of today’s business projects.
- Workshops with key stakeholders of creative practices towards crafting the right processes and methods to amplify creative team impact.
- Develop strategic plans for team building, collaboration within and between teams, and long term skill development of new and continuing team members.
Here are a list of direct problems that DMD can help you with:
- Mentoring teams so that they have better practice skills in doing interaction design and service design within your great design and creative teams.
- Creating processes that help designers, business leaders and developers work together not just efficiently but towards the goals of better solutions which have measurable impact.
- Help design studios make the transition from single focus or dual-focus design disciplines (like graphic design and industrial design) towards integrating skillsets and mindsets that come into play when working on interaction design and service design problem spaces.
- Creating long term hiring strategies through developing career path development, job descriptions and putting in place an environment where teaching and criticism take place within the working environment.
