Jack Connolly
BDes (Hons) Industrial Design MSc Medical Devices Design
Cardiovascular Team

Jack is an industrial designer from Dublin. Graduating with first class honours from Industrial Design at the National College of Art and Design (NCAD), he developed a keen interest in user-centered design and designing for the human body. He then went on to work freelance as an industrial designer, before following his parallel interest in biology and returning to NCAD to undertake the MSc in Medical Devices Design. During this time, Jack connected deeply with the Human Factors Engineering (HFE) process as a way to both improve the efficiency of the design process and produce more successful products. In 2014, following the MSc, Jack joined the Healthcare design team at Design Partners in Bray, where he helped create and implement their ISO 13485-compatible HFE process, conducting usability research for a range of industry-leading clients. Jack’s passion as a designer lies in understanding the psychological aspects of products and services; why and how things make sense to people, how to make new product paradigms instantly familiar, and how this can be applied to improve people’s experiences. His strength is in taking usability research insights and translating them into actionable design outputs. Jack is excited for the BioInnovate Fellowship as an opportunity to be at the cutting edge of development in the healthcare industry and improve the industry through excellent clinician and patient experiences. In his spare time, Jack practices vipassana meditation and is a keen rock-climber, runner and sea-swimmer.
