This paper describes and evaluates experiences of co-design practice from two different contexts, Indonesia and the UK. It draws on multiple case studies consisting of three co-design projects in each context. The focus of discussion is to better understand the influence of the geographical context on the application of co-design and how it informs the characteristics of the co-design practice. This comparison of practices in both contexts has been conducted through examination of their respective processes in relation established criteria. The study in the Indonesian context finds notable effectiveness in its support for collaboration and flexibility, while the decision-making process appear less democratic. By contrast, in the UK context effectiveness is identifiable in almost all aspects of the process. The paper concludes with a discussion of the similarities and differences in the characteristics of co-design in both contexts.
