Duncan McKeanclose
Design is in everything we make, but it's also between those things. It's a mix of craft, science, storytelling, propaganda, and philosophy.

— Erik Adigard

Duncan McKean is a human-centred designer who works on projects that impact society. Several have been recognised in national competitions, and his work has appeared on high-profile design industry websites.

He has held courses in Rhino 3D, creative methodologies, and taught university students the digital design skills they need to become competitive designers.

When he moved to the Netherlands in 2009 to be with his family, he set himself up as an Independent Designer. His holistic approach to design, creativity and strategy has helped him gain amazing clients such as the Global Reporting Initiative, David Lynch Foundation, Greenpeace, Huddle, Elsevier and Deltafix.

He likes his tea hot, with no sugar.
