About me
I've spent most of my adult life thinking that I had nothing of importance to say, but since I entered the design profession, I quickly realised I was wrong and had plenty to say! And I'd like to use my new-found voice to aid my clients! I want to bring truth to power, but in a consumable way for today's media-savvy customers. Let me be your guide. Going to Kingston uni was a challenge but also a great help. It showed me that graphic design is not just a commercial endeavour but has roots in social, political design. So I can bring the truth to power with the idea behind the project/design. It also showed me how to temper myself when I felt like I wasn't being listened to or taken seriously and how to get my point over at times. We love the art/design time of a project, but it showed me that the devil is in the detail and the research behind the project. In the long run, I would like to take the opportunity to go into tutoring and work with kids from working-class backgrounds to give them the chance to get into the design world, and this would also be mentoring them.
