Jason’s first forays in design was helping businesses build online brands through user-centred web design, where he applied design thinking to his work. He was previously with the National Council of Social Service where he championed ground-up collaboration efforts between Voluntary Welfare Organizations and grassroots.
At The Human Experience Lab in the Public Service Division (Government of Singapore), Jason had the opportunity to bring his passions for human-centred design, social innovation and entrepreneurship into government to create public good. He spent 2 months at the globally renowned innovation firm IDEO, working on a collaboration project between housing authorities and other government agencies looking into the future of public housing. He had also worked on various multi-agency projects on issues such as Singaporeans’ career aspirations and ways to help persons with disabilities find employment. He is now running his own business focused on products and services that deliver public and social good. He recently helped SG Enable, an agency dedicated to enabling persons with disability, design a new grant experience through a 5-day design sprint.
His pet passion of hoarding online articles had now found some popularity and practical use – Design For Public Good Flipboard magazine – with over 10,000 readers.
