Hello, community. 👋
We'd love to see some of you at this last event of the year. This month's topic is on chronic health problems and how design can help, told through LovedBy's story by its founder, Matt Farrar. Do join us for an evening of inspiration, lessons and reflections.
# LovedBy story
After 25 years in Design leadership, Matt’s new story began after his son Jacob was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.
LovedBy is a genuinely causal business, a tech and design consultancy using insight and technology to create measurable behaviour change at the sharpest possible end:
Impacting chronic condition management among young people.
The stakes don’t get higher. The need for tangible behavioural impact couldn’t be clearer. The audience couldn’t be harder to communicate to.
But they have proven successes.
In order to fund their work, they have produced a variety of consultancy and tech products rooted in their learning for those involved in behaviour change and communicating to Gen Z.
Now businesses can contribute to and benefit from working a uniquely modern type of company.
