Stephen Collins

Small Business Owner and Principal Designer in Canberra, Australia

Based in Canberra, I'm the Founder and a Principal Designer at acidlabs, a small design thinking, user experience, and service design agency trying to do things a bit differently, giving our people a human place to work and actual balance in their lives.

I care about things like ethics, representation (I'm one of way too many middle-class, educated, middle-aged, white dudes in design), the big picture, and building smarter clients.

As a dillettante bonsai grower and keen gardener, I'm certain that home-grown tomatoes are the best and Chinese Elms are almost impossible to keep alive!

I'm known to most as “trib”. It’s a long story. Feel free to use it (the name, not the story).

Politically and socially, I'm humanist and progressive and use the pronouns he/him/his.
