MDes / BA (Hons) Product Design
As an MDes product designer, research and design hold a high level of importance and therefore interest in my work. Placements in design research and graphic design have allowed me to experience a variety of areas within the design process. This has led to a constant desire to learn and grow which is demonstrated through the variety of products that have been designed throughout my time at university.
Some noteworthy university projects of mine have investigated Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), empathy simulations and degenerative sight loss diseases. These have been the most inspiring to me as they focused on helping someone with an impairment or condition. Adapting products to work for a particular client or user group excites and draws me to a project as unique items tend to promote a closer connection. This can be seen through the choice of materials I tend to gravitate towards for my projects, namely ceramics and wood.
To develop further going forward, I would be open to various avenues to keep developing my knowledge and skills.
'Sense of Nature' brings the essence of outdoors inside and increases visibility for those losing their sight; stimulating the senses from touch to sight and smell promotes the sensation of comfort and tranquillity.
