About me
Multi-disciplined visual communicator for +15 years, working for agencies across London to the Asia-Pacific. Recent projects include a focus on solidarity with grass roots unions, empowering workers co-ops & future experiences for climate designers - converging on radical change, ethical design, cultural interventions, education, medicine, public awareness, conservation, social impact, fundraising, nonprofits, journalism, information design & humanitarian aid. Aligning with industry insiders who are working to reshape the creative field to tackle climate change, using lasting & democratic forms of communication, including a deep understanding of the impacts advertising & consumerist ideology has had on human, community & planetary well-being. Committed to providing access to professional design for those who couldn’t otherwise afford it, but would benefit immensely from its application. Supporting unfunded activist groups, mutual aid networks & radical libertarian projects for Zerofee or Radical Exchange programs. Diverse skillset ranges: a history of ideas, directing up early-stage startups, leading design in cross-functional teams at innovation-led agencies, designing & delivering International Creative Campaigns & Multi-Platform Interactive Experiences. Adapting to all types of team structures, applying various methodologies & processes from Design Thinking, Lean UX, User-Centred Design & Sprints based on what works for the project, team or business. Even wild visions, like a paradigm shift towards a #truecost marketplace of the future; where the price of every product tells the ecological truth, stunning reversals of perspective & global mindbombs that will facilitate the all-out metamemetic insurrection towards a future that computes.
