Sydney Johnson

“My professional philosophy revolves around the idea that design can truly make life better for people. This is at the heart of my company and was a large part of the reason that my previous role was in the healthcare space. I try to take on projects that will have some kind of positive impact on people’s lives.  ”

Sydney Johnson owns Three Times True, a user research and service design consultancy. Through in-depth user research, user experience strategy, and exceptional service design, Sydney helps businesses to become more human-centred. [Read More...]
