    Education

    2012

    Sep 2010 - Jul 2012
    • London, United Kingdom
    • Design Products MA developed my creative and innovative design thinking. The programme embraced a pluralistic approach to design across a number of design cultures, to aid me in developing my own design identity. Through making and experimentation; design for manufacture; designing interactions; using design as a catalyst for change or a means to explore emergent scenarios. The programme enables students to conceptualise and validate ideas by canvassing, provoking, challenging, and questioning people, places, technology, things and systems. It educates students to be design-thinkers who can address real world challenges through balancing high levels of creativity and technical capability with contextual insight and empathy for people, as well as understanding and shaping contemporary and future discourse.
