I’m a designer from Melbourne, Australia. I think writing about myself in the third person is stupid. I’m the principal of Floate Design Partners, a host of The Nudge, founder of Hookturn and And Now It’s In Print, a contributor to Dear Design Student, and a believer in the strength of community. I sit on the ethics committee of a major research hospital, I speak and facilitate workshops about design’s place in society, and I think there’s always time to make positive change to yourself and society if you think big but take small achievable steps. I run about a dozen twitter accounts, but the one I want people to take more notice of is @rossfloate. If Instagram is more your bag, take a look at my account. I try to run low on the selfies, but nobody else will let me take photographs of them looking weird.
Thanks for reading this. Now get off your butt and go and volunteer some time to a local organisation that needs your help. If you’re in Victoria, Australia (like I am), here’s a link to get you started.
If you want to get in touch with me, please do.
