Design Innovation is the practice of creating opportunities using the tools and methods of a designer.
When we apply the design mindset to a business challenge, we unlock transformative perspectives that traditional methods struggle to achieve.
As a result and through the services we offer, The Blooming Platypus helps organisations to:
Co-create powerful solutions that stay relevant, and stand the tests of time,
Stay ahead of your competition by responding proactively to opportunities,
Innovate economically by streamlining your activities and staying solution-focused.
Why we’re different
Our methods are underpinned by the latest research and designed by our in-house team of practitioner-researchers, all of whom are working academics who actively curate and publish studies about Design Innovation.
We are on a mission to breathe fun, colour and creativity back into the world of innovation. If we’re going to change the world for the better, let’s do it with joy!
The Platypus Philosophy is our binding ethos that defines how we work, and why we work as we do. We are committed to providing services with integrity so our clients, too, can experience the best of Design Innovation.

Having efficiently run and well-facilitated workshops was crucial to the success of the project and that was what The Blooming Platypus gave us.
What our clients say
Managing Director | Nudge Education
Justine facilitated to a large group on her own, being flexible to meet our budget for a team day. I found the content and the concepts fascinating and really applicable to our organisation.
The activities for the team were really engaging and I felt that it energised them to think from a design perspective and some very interesting solutions were suggested!
Project Manager | SeaScapes
