lost in thought
with Sean Hughes

Chief Design Officer, Philips Design Healthcare

I'm inspired by clever, dynamic and motivated people.

To me, brilliant is taking the biggest challenges and finding simple and effective solutions.

My favorite app is The Times of London.

When I'm having a creative block I take a walk.

My favorite brand is Ralph Lauren as he provides most of my clothes.

My favorite color is any shade of blue.

My dream project is the next one.

The best advice I ever received was go back to school.

The very next thing on my to-do list is to complete this list.

My dream collaborator is Richard Branson. He seems like an interesting person.

I think the Kardashians are irrelevant.

At least once, everyone should coach less than nine girls in soccer.

The best way to unwind after a long day is to have a cup of tea!

If I had a one year sabbatical, I would sail around the Caribbean.

The most overused word in meetings today is 'design thinking."

At FUSE 2015, I can't wait to meet many old friends.

At the moment, I'm obsessed with my heating system - hoping it can last the winter.

As of now, I'm totally over design thinking. I prefer design doing, which of course contains an awful lot of the latter and always has!

I'd define my personal style as pragmatic.

My tools of the trade are PPT and my vocabulary.

The biggest thing that has changed since I started in the industry is computers instead of pens and pencils.

I'm happiest when I'm skiing down a mountain with my three girls,

I lead by example.

I wish I could play the piano.

I'm proud that my design team won 27 international design awards last year!

My playlist is very wide and I love Spotify and iTunes radio.

You can usually find me behind my MacBook air.

The last stamp on my passport is immigration at Logan.

The next stamp on my passport is exit immigration at Logan.

When I look back on my career I still think I have a lot to learn.

I still hope to transform healthcare one project at a time.
