I’m Daniel Goodman, an award-winning freelance designer based in London with a focus on branding and packaging. My 12-year career has been anything but typical; graduating top of my class in 2006, running my own studio – Dan Good Design for 8 years and then hungry for a new challenge, moved to London in 2016. Recent highlights include developing Michelin's Global Packaging Guidelines and re-designing Georgia’s national beer. I’m passionate and driven, have a penchant for bold ideas, a somewhat OCD-like focus on the details and the experience to deliver results through to completion.

The FLOW Project

Social Innovation & Design
|

Aug, 2014 - Aug, 2016

Two years; two different regions with remarkably similar challenges; 28 out-of-work youth; some deeply rural, some from bustling small towns; an unlikely collaboration of academics, local municipality, development practitioners, and innovators; one great big out-the-box project that pushed the boundaries of development work.

I played a key role in developing and implementing the project and was integral to the roll-out and design of the two community currencies.
