Hello, I’m Jazzy Olive — a qualified & professional Graphic Designer, with a passion for human-centred design. • Jazzy makes up one half of the Ladies, Wine & Design (Southampton) initiative, and very much believes in design for the better! (Check out ladieswinedesign.com/southampton for more info.) • Often collaborating with other creatives and disciplines, Jazzy has a strong passion to create culturally driven ethical design. She was awarded ‘Best in Show’ in Ethical Design at the University of Portsmouth and now lectures on their BA Ethical Design module. • She is studying an MRes in Healthcare & Design at the Royal College of Art, and Imperial College London, where she is collaborating with healthcare professionals, scientists, and designers to develop Edna, a platform to support victims of domestic abuse. • She is an Adobe Certified Associate, and her keen interest in culturally engaging design was highly recognised with the School of Art & Design ‘Visual Culture Award’. • Jazzy gives back to the community by sharing her knowledge & experience with the next generation of creatives — providing free mentorship for local students.
