As a co-founder and principal of the innovation consultancy Plot, Gill designs and develops the interventions Plot undertakes across industry sectors for clients such as Nokia, the BBC and Participle. She is an advocate for more open forms of participation that foster interdisciplinary collaboration and produce better people-centered system designs.
Gill's early work, as a researcher and developer of local public services used the community development approach, which puts an emphasis on designing relationships — connecting local networks and agencies to user-needs.
Her personal and professional research interests include identifying success factors in start-up business incubation, design strategies for new technologies, and exploring the impact of new pervasive technologies in everyday life.
A graduate and former assistant director of Brunel University's Design Strategy and Innovation MA, Gill has played numerous academic and industrial advisory roles for Dundee University, the British Standards Institute, SVA and Tisch, as well as "four years national service" at the Design Council, London.
She held the Carnegie Mellon School of Design's Nierenberg Chair, supports design entrepreneurs and teaches design strategy.
