ABOUT ME

 

I am a masters student studying Design Innovation at the Glasgow School of Art.

In 2016 I decided to leave my job as Graphic Designer and Project Manager, for the in-house design team at French Connection, to pursue a career that would use my creativity, curiosity and critical thinking to challenge the status quo within our society. 

With a particular interest in housing, communities and regeneration I have used the past 12 months to explore the meaning of home and the emotional connection we have with it. Through human centred, research based design, I have been exploring technological, society and economical shifts in city living habits. With the introduction of new technologies, I aim to break down learnt ideologies connected to home and explore creative alternatives to an outdated system.
