Work Integrated Learning.

Good Health Design is a design and research studio based in AUT’s School of Art + Design. Learn more about us and what we do here.

We have several unique opportunities for AUT 3rd year Communication Design students looking for 60 hour Work Integrated Learning experiences (GRAD704) to work on some real world projects in the health and wellbeing space.

If you’re interested in working with our team and being part of design projects that have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of our local communities, please email an application to us at goodhealthdesign@aut.ac.nz. Your application should contain your portfolio, CV, and a short paragraph outlining why you are interested in working with us. Please mention the project you are interested in on your email application.

Current Project Opportunities.

This page outlines just a few of the projects we are seeking students to help out on, but we have many more projects for students who are keen to work with our team.

Museum of Meaningful Moments

The Museum of Meaningful Moments (MMM) is a community wellbeing project that invites people to respond to questions or prompts about their everyday experiences in times of change. The purpose of the Museum is to showcase and celebrate the moments we take for granted in daily life. We want to help show how we all see things in different ways. When viewed as a whole, the collection is a reminder that while our everyday experiences may be unique to us as individuals, our collective experience at any given moment is made up of many different points of view. In this way, the Museum of Meaningful Moments allows us to see what is unique, and what is shared, in our experience of times of change. Learn more about this project at www.museumofmeaningfulmoments.com or on social media @museofmeaning

We're looking to do a proper launch of the 'Museum' on the 20th of July, and are looking for a student or two to help create some promo material for this — some examples might be a showcase for large TVs around AUT, small flyers to drop off around the city, and other cool ways to promote MMM.

Initiate.Collaborate Marketing Campaign

Good Health Design designed a card game called initiate.collaborate, that brings people together to build successful collaborations—right at the start of a project. You can learn more about it at www.initiate-collaborate.com.

We are looking for two communication design students who are interested in developing a clever and engaging campaign or marketing plan to promote initiate.collaborate.

Medication Information

Medication information is often overwhelming and loaded with medical jargon. We had a student earlier in the year, design a template for a more visual and patient friendly medication information leaflet.

We are after a communication design student who can build on this work and develop an extensive icon bank to represent various conditions, symptoms and side effects of common medications. This project will be in collaboration with our external partner at the Institute for Innovation and Improvement (i3), Waitematā DHB. Learn more about i3 at i3.waitematadhb.govt.nz
