YONI LEFEVRE

Design researcher

Within the context of ageing and design, Yoni Lefévre is particularly interested in creating and enhancing participatory engagements through the language of visual design. She is experienced in participatory practices that involves creative explorations with the wider public e.g. younger and older people, asylum seekers, small neighborhood communities, counselors and health and social care professionals.

Yoni is using person-centred design approaches to work in several Health and Wellbeing projects. Combining her practical social design background with Academic design research by exploring people's lived experiences and co-design methods enables Yoni to design for social transformation and equality.
