I'm a London based designer with interests in user experience, design process, and education. My work is ideas led and process driven, with a focus on immersive research and development. I apply this thinking to a range of disciplines including interaction, research, graphic and exhibition design. I've completed projects for clients such as The Design Museum, Future Cities Catapult, The British Council and National Maritime Museum. I've also led a number of research projects and taught as a visiting lecturer at Winchester School of Art, The CASS, Nottingham Trent University and Camberwell College of Arts.Locked Pro Plan feature
I'm a Lead Designer at interaction design studio Kin. Our work is about using technology and research to make connections between people, information, spaces, and things. We work for a wide range of clients, many in the heritage and cultural sectors. We create physical and digital interactives and experiences that engage, inform and entertain people. We do this through a combination of user experience, interaction, software and communication design.
Speaking at international UX/UI Push Conference in Münich. Abstract: Focusing on design as a social subject, this talk will look at the ways in which interaction design can help re-enchant people with their surroundings through an engaged physical approach to digital technology. Moving beyond a traditional technological aesthetic, this enhanced physicality can be developed as its own language. Through a sensory grammar of Tangibility, Tactility and Texture we’ll look at the form, behaviour and craft of physical interactions. This language can be used to enhance an objects ability to create emotion, encouraging people to relate to information in a new way, with the potential to achieve a more active participation to education and learning
Working across all levels of five courses in the design department. Writing workshops that compliment existing briefs and working with lecturers to deliver energetic, often process led prototyping and ideation workshops.
Writing and delivering briefs and workshops to BA Graphic Design and BA Illustration students. I was involved with programming, closely mentoring and delivering a specific interaction design pathway over the course of a year. Focussing on interaction design and design process the studio looked at how we relate to the city around us. Through three briefs we investigated how we travel through, work in, and memorialise where we live.
I attended the festival as part of a UK trade delegation representing creative businesses in the UK.
Teaching on the MA Communication Design. I wrote a design brief focused on Smart Cities. I delivered this three years running and facilitating prototyping and making workshops that accompanied the project too.
