Intro

I am a BA Hons 3D Design: Product Design graduate from Plymouth University where I focused on products and services for a circular economy. 


The Agency of Design

In 2015 I joined the Agency of Design, a studio in London who 'help organisations design a better future by rethinking their physical and digital worlds'. They work in an array of sectors combing design, engineering, and business innovation to bring engaging products and experiences to market.


Background

I grew up in the New Forest, where I achieved A Levels in design, art and maths. Alongside my studies, I ran my own gardening service across my town, providing  garden upkeep and maintenance to a regular customer base. I was fully insured, provided all my own tools, with a large trailer to get between jobs. I ran my gardening service for over 5 years from age 14 until I left for University.


Ethos

I love designing and making. I am hands on and 'learn by doing', but I also have a  fascination with the larger system and impact of products. I have a key interest in the circular economy, material scarcity and innovative business - something which greatly influences my work.

Competitions 

I was featured in Elle Decoration Magazine in  September 2013, winning the 'closed loop garden design' category for the B&Q British Talent Search 2013. I designed a compact garden shredder specifically formatted to work best when leased, not sold.

Commerce

In 2011, I won a place onto B&Q's Youth Board - a national competition to bring together a group of young people to give insights on real business challenges. Since the youth board, I have also interned with Kingfisher, B&Q's parent company to work on solutions to design out plastic waste in areas of their supply chain - where innovations are being discussed and developed.
