FACS Codesign Training: Supporting direct payment agreement clients in Northern NSW

Change is best supported when it is underpinned by ideas and insights developed with the people being designed for.

Our approach is informed by human-centred design, co-design, asset-based community development, and systems thinking which are uniquely placed to solve complex challenges and support the change required.

We offer consulting, and co-design capability building and coaching/mentorship programs to support organisations to design and deliver more person-centric offerings.

Sticky Design Studio is led by Jax Wechsler, a designer and educator with 20 years design related experience. Jax has deep experience working with NGO, private and public sector clients on complex challenges. She is extremely curious and always has one foot in practice and another foot in learning, teaching and sharing.

Sticky Design Studio is supported by a network of talented independent freelancers with diverse skills to deliver initiatives large and small.

Innovation requires change!

Lets talk about how Sticky Design Studio can help you make change stick.


Human-centred Design Consulting

We offer human centred design consulting as well as on-line, and contextual design research services. We can either do this for you independently or work with your team to build your capability in human-centred design, co-design and social research methods.

We have extensive experience working with vulnerable communities and take a strength based approach, based on Appreciative Inquiry, bringing understanding about what works so we can focus on creating more of that rather than creating from a deficit mindset.


We have unique training programs that can be tailored to your organisation’s needs and timeframe.

Our programs:

  • Builds human-centred design and co-design capability.
  • Applies co-design, systems thinking, futures and asset based community development approaches and methodologies to solve organisational problems.
  • Engages the people affected and involved  through genuinely participatory, collaborative methods.

Design Research & Storytelling

Stories are “data with soul” (to quote Brene Brown), they can create connections and change perspectives.  We help to understand and communicate “lived experience” through qualitative and contextual design research and storytelling.  Stories can be shared in many engaging visual formats. Our accomplished videographers, graphic designers and storytellers can give your data soul, facilitating empathy, understanding of diverse perspectives and shared visions for the future, supporting both the design and implementation of your initiatives. Carefully crafted stories can help facilitate understanding, communicate visions for the future and help make change stick.

Coaching & Mentoring Programs

Our coaching and mentoring programs can build your capability on a current project or prepare you for the next one. We work with both teams and individuals to build capacity in human-centred design, design research, co-design and related change approaches. 

Let us build capability in your team to continually refine and evolve your organisation’s offerings, so that the people you work with and serve are consistently delighted.
