Innovation Management Online Platform 
Central Saint Martins

As Design Manager in the MAIM Website Team, we are collectively developing the course online platform for MA Innovation Management at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London.

"The aim is to develop an holistic online presence through a content driven, network management based website that establishes our people as a group of “colloquial experts” who strive to inform, share, inspire and define a new movement within the field of innovation management. This platform serves to strengthen our positioning within the innovation community — in both academia and the professional industry."
