About me
As an experienced product and graphic designer, I thrive both as an individual and within team settings. My wide-ranging design capabilities make me extremely versatile, ready to take on any design project or challenge. I believe that my enthusiasm, hunger to excite, and adaptability drives me to excel. Working alongside strategists and anthropologists has enabled me to view design from a business perspective, provided me the opportunity to support with research, and apply this methodology to my design thinking.

    Designing end to end, I worked by identifying social problems and offering solutions. The process started with research using in-field methodologies and ethnographic research to identify a problem. Through ideation and development, I was able to generate ideas, test them with users and gather feedback, before developing these concepts. The final step in this design process was not only visualising these designs but looking at manufacturing and materials. This was a crucial and valuable step in the design process to create not only a breakthrough product but identify how this would work and be produced in a real-world environment.
