About me
Hi. I'm Nancy and I'm a designer and maker from North London. Recent graduate from the University of Plymouth with 1st Class Honours Degree in 3D Design: Product Design. I have loved living and studying by the sea and am extremely passionate about the environment. I am very interested in sustainable design and the ways in which we have an impact on the planet. As a designer and maker, I am compassionate towards others and the issues in the surrounding environment. In particular, my projects are often focused around sustainability and minimising our effect on the environment. ​ I am extremely passionate about sustainable design and am an advocate for change in this area. ​ I hope to promote a better understanding of environmental issues through accessible products.
