Julian Goss is a tenured professor of Industrial Design at OCAD University. Since 2011 he has also worked at the Innovation Technology and Design (ITD) Lab at Baycrest, becoming the first designer-in-residence at a Canadian hospital. He currently works with the Canadian Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation.
Goss’ design career began in the UK, where he worked under Ron Arad at the One Off studios in London. On his return to Glasgow, he taught integrated product design at Glasgow College of Building & Printing and Glasgow Caledonian University, while also working as product design project manager. He later started a design practice in Toronto, working with clients such as Pure Design, Whirlpool, Bell Canada, the Toronto Pan-and-Para Pan Am Games Committee, the Centre for eHealth Innovation, and Cancer Care Ontario.
As a design educator and consultant with a specialty in healthcare, his emphasis has been on the user-focused development, integration and evaluation of new technologies, as well as system and service design. He is particularly interested in the intersection of design ‘thinking’ and strategy implementation in healthcare organizations.
