Insights Researcher

Household Design

Nov 2014 - Mar 2016
  • Full Time
  • Across client project work, new business & marketing and sharing knowledge with the studio I gathered first-hand research (e.g. store audits, vox pops, events etc) and desk research (e.g. best practice innovation, analysing trend reports and reading industry publications) to help lead innovative and inspiring strategy and design – collaborating with all members of the wider team. I regularly presented my research to the studio and project teams and compiled reports and content for the Household blog. I also initiated and helped to run a live project brief with students at Northumbria University, helped to run Household Hearts (a company initiative that raises money for charity), ran the company Instagram feed and regularly organised studio activities such as a monthly book club and a Eurovision song contest sweepstake – I love to be an active member of the team, getting involved in anyway I can!
