White Light Education was formed in Melbourne, Australia in 2016 by Christian Duell and is supported by a small network of facilitators and collaborators. Having evolved since 2010 from a traditional design consultancy, White Light now shares the principles, process and tools of design more broadly with individuals and organisations tackling complex social challenges.
We work with clients all around Australia from Broken Hill to Toowoomba, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, working within the community, public purpose or education sector.
White Light believes in the inherent creativity of each individual, the power of play, and the wisdom that lies within every group. We believe that a lived experience provides the best qualification for solving problems and we seek to ensure the voice of the consumer, client, end user or customer is central to any design process.
White Light creates the structure and support for groups to thrive through a range of services that include Design Thinking, Human-centred Design, Co-Design and Design Coaching.
