My name is Megumi Koyama, a designer + researcher + strategist currently studying MA Innovation Management at Central Saint Martins in London, UK. I am also a designer at Social Innovation Exchange, designing and communicating stories and knowledge on social innovation to the global network and beyond. I have recently completed my final major project exploring how radical transparency and public co-creation can demystify the black box of Big Data (I call it 'Service Design Activism'). As a designer, I strongly believe in the role of design as a catalyst to creating responsible emerging technologies for the civil society.
In the past years, I have worked as a graphic designer for a wide range of clients including museums, fin-tech startups and art & performance organisations. When I am not designing or researching, you can find me indulging in science fiction novels, watching puppy videos or enjoying a massive brunch.
