About me
I have an interest in the capacity for product design to create a narrative around a product offering for customers and clients. Through grounded user research and a vigorous process a resolution is found to benefit a client. My own process has been described as far more analytical than most designers, combining user research with contextual studies to create a response that is firmly aware of its use case. I believe that the reason we see products fail is because of a lack of purpose wrought by a watered-down analysis and weak product placement. While studying Product Design I have gained an interest in Service Design, management, marketing, copy-writing and many other areas. I wish to pursue a masters in Service Design or Design Management at some point in the future.
Projects
  • The Conran Shop Rebrand Concept
    The Conran Shop Rebrand ConceptRefining a retail company's branding and website to match its rewarding in-store experience. This meant bringing clarity to its message and changing the website to refocus on expressing a lifestyle yet at the same time bringing products to the fore. Exploring the brand's heritage as well as its present and future amidst a retail market that is continually evolving.
  • Agalma - Exploring Nostalgia
    Agalma - Exploring NostalgiaA project centered around our society's addiction to society, the aim was to make a user consider what items in their life truly meant something to them, and what artifacts were simply paraphernalia. While we focus on the ideas of 're-using' and 'recycling' with the aim of reducing our CO2 footprint, we must realise that we must first 'reduce' how much we consume.
  • Dean Street Pillow Talk
    Dean Street Pillow TalkA smart home project in collaboration with Recipe (formerly Precipice) design studio. The aim was to create a smart device that was truly useful and rewarding to a specific user. I selected to focus on the LGBTQ+ community. Drawing on both personal experience and that of friends to create a truly unique response to an industry brief that felt satisfying in its subject matter.

     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    Managing the operations of multiple shoots at a time. This would begin with trend forecasting and selecting products and then organising transport for items from multiple global brands. Alongside this role I have also written articles for wallpaper.com that the editors remarked carried the brand voice well and did not require editing. Three shoots I managed/coordinated ended up as covers for June, November 2019 as well as January 2020.
