Matt Edgar

I’m associate director of design and user research at NHS Digital, where I lead a growing professional group of 150+ designers, user researchers, content specialists, product managers and delivery managers.

Before that, I spent 5 years as a service designer, digital coach, and founder of service design and innovation consultancy Stick People. I developed the GDS Service Manager Programme, and coached in the DWP Digital Academy. My service design clients included the Co-op, NHS organisations, and local government.

I’m based in Leeds, England, where I’m a volunteer host of the annual design thinking and rapid prototyping event Leeds GovJam.

I also like writing and speaking, so if you think I can add something to your publication or event, please say hello.
