Euan Black

Senior Social Innovator

Euan is fascinated by people, what they create and why.

Graduating with a Bachelor of Design Honours degree in Graphic Design he quickly realised the important role of design in telling compelling stories and building culture and relationships. 13 years of working internationally – 7 years in his own consultancy – have exposed Euan to an incredible range of experiences and sectors. Focussed on assisting organisations to understand, shape and interpret themselves he has delivered services – including human-centred design, corporate and employer branding, communications and strategic organisational development – for a diverse clientele spanning Health Care, Infrastructure, Finance, Research, Higher Education, Manufacturing, Hospitality and Start-Ups.

Outside work Euan sits on the board and actively assists in the coordination of Short Back And Sidewalks a charity providing hair cuts to those affected by homelessness. He is committed to personal and professional development and actively engages in both through psychotherapy, reading and seeking real-world learning opportunities. As an avid typographer and melomaniac nothing frustrates Euan more than badly kerned type, especially on an album cover.
