I’m passionate about pursuing diversity in the creative industry through empowering minorities, as well as decolonising our way of thinking about design. Combining this interest with vibrant visual languages and a love for words results in a practice that manifests through many different mediums.

This piece particularly explores how 'good' design is a flawed concept, familiarity is overrated and highlights the difference between diversity and decolonisation. It's a useful read for anyone who is searching for resources to learn about the concept of decolonisation and how it applies to design.
- Why Are There So Few Women of Colour In Design?My first article for Creative Review interrogated why there are a significant lack of women of colour in the design industry, and what we can do to address this problem. Originating as my university dissertation, the full essay was designed as a zine within a protest poster kit, using a collaged visual language that took inspiration from the punk and riot grrrrl movements as well as the Black Panther newspapers.
