Nick Bell Design


Nick Bell’s paper on Early Lab is published by She Ji

Nick Bell's paper on the work of his Early Lab design practice in the field of youth mental health has today been published by She Ji, the Journal of Design, Economics and Innovation at Tongji University, Shanghai. 

The paper argues for the benefits that making-led participatory co-design can bring to two fields where its use is rare: early-stage innovation and mental health. Nick draws on evidence from his situated cooperation with service users and providers of a regional UK mental health trust. 

His paper appears in a special issue of She Ji, edited by Ezio Manzini and Adam Thorpe. Along with papers by University of the Arts London (UAL) colleagues Dilys Williams, Alison Prendiville, Lorraine Gamman and Anne Eggebert, it is a critical reflection on the two-year Cultures of Resilience (CoR) meta-project they all participated in at UAL.
