thinkpublic was the UK's first social design agency, established in 2004.
The inspiration to start thinkpublic came when Deborah Szebeko volunteered at Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital, where she experienced first-hand the need for involving people in the co-design of services, communications and change.
"I'm passionate about creative ways to engage and involve people in the co-creation and design of services, systems and products that can positively impact society and the wider planet".
