The present and future of design

The present and future of design

A live “ask me anything” conversation with Design Manager Winnie Chang.

At Luminary Labs, design plays an integral role in our work. Over the years, we’ve given a great deal of thought to design’s role in strategy and innovation consulting. In a recent “ask me anything” conversation — recorded live on March 3, 2023 and moderated by Naomi Naik — Luminary Labs Design Manager Winnie Chang answered frequently asked questions about how we define design within innovation, how the Design & Insights team collaborates with other teams, and what she enjoys most about her work at Luminary Labs. 

A few questions Winnie answered during the virtual AMA on March 3, 2023:

  • What brought you to Luminary Labs?
  • How did you get started in design?
  • What is your favorite thing about working at LL?
  • What kind of work does the Design & Insights team do? How does design fit into Luminary Labs’ consulting work?
  • What does a typical day look like for you?
  • At Luminary Labs, design is multidisciplinary. Can you share some examples that you found particularly exciting?
  • The D&I team is small and growing. How would someone joining the team influence how it evolves?
  • How do you stay on top of design trends?
  • A consulting firm is different from an agency or design studio. What’s the dynamic like?
  • How do the teams work together?
  • How does LL support professional development?

If you’re excited about how we approach collaborating with non-designers, reducing complexity, identifying business needs, and delivering on shared design goals, we’d love to meet you: We’re hiring a Senior Designer in New York.
