About Good Health Design

< Return to Home

We are a transdisciplinary design and research studio based at AUT’s school of Art + Design. We use  design to empower, delight, and enrich lives in our communities. We are united by our motivation to help people to think differently, be confident to explore possibilities and dream bigger in response to health and wellbeing challenges.  

Our research focuses on how the design of products and services may have a positive impact on people’s health and wellbeing. We engage with clinical experts, healthcare professionals as well as researchers from other disciplines, to share and test ideas and develop unique solutions.

Good Health Design facilitates a range of Design for Health projects with both undergraduate and postgraduate students at AUT.

Undergraduate Students

Good Health Design offers unique opportunities for AUT undergraduate students looking to work on some real-world projects in the health and wellbeing space. We work with students through Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experiences and paid summer studentships with external partners.

If you are interested in the opportunities we have to offer for motivated and creative students to research in a collaborative and supportive transdisciplinary space, get in touch with us.

Postgraduate Students

Good Health Design supervises Masters and PhD students in the design for health and wellbeing space. Our team is highly experienced in supervising real-world applied design projects with external partners, and can match students to great projects that align with where they want to be in the future.
