Craig Jeffcott


I’m an interdisciplinary designer and artist specialising in projects that engage with complex technical systems: in science, healthcare, and society.

I’m based in London, Lisbon and Glasgow.

As a graduate of the unique MA in Interaction Design programme at Goldsmiths, with MSc degrees in medical genetics, learning technologies and science communication, I have a wealth of experience across domains and practices which I draw on for client and self-initiated projects.

I have worked on recent projects with The Royal Marsden Hospital, The Institute of Cancer Research, and Dreamkers Creative Agency.

I specialises in creative projects that use design methods to help to answer challenging questions in complex and technical domains. One of my particular interests is the role of technology and science in contemporary society, engaging with people working at the forefront of these fields, and using design as a tool to explore new futures and ideas.

I approach projects with an open mind, grounded in human-centred, design methods, drawing on aspects of design research, service design, interaction design and speculative design. The approach is playful and agile, to try things and to test them, quickly, and to find a surprising angle on them. I have a flexible approach, with access to a creative network whenever a project requires partners and collaborations, from photographers and visual artists to writers, performers and researchers.
