About me
I am a London-based designer. I am interested in human behaviour. I open up conversations, ask hard questions and engage with empathy in order to create intuitive and purposeful solutions for people. I like the challenge of being able to communicate any kind of content, visually or verbally. I have conducted user research for a mental health product and also volunteered as a UX interviewer and tester for the Institute of Imagination. I create illustrations, prints, and graphics for a range of surfaces - apparel/ textiles/home/retail display. I manipulate visuals and artwork so they are ready for print - large-scale format. I am a podcast enthusiast and love researching issues in design, culture, humanity, and tech. I bring this info in when creating trend forecasting reports in the area of prints and graphics. I am proficient in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Indesign.
