Exploration and critical enquiry play a central role in my process, and I pursue design that is an honest embodiment of the supporting research.
Starting projects with a sound foundation allows me relax creatively: once I've established an understanding of the theory, people involved, and overall context, I can explore freely within that region. This is representative of a wider process: I manage the abstract through the limits of context.
I have always found interactive and visual technologies one of the best ways to develop ideas, so applications like Figma feature early in my process, and play a part in my thinking process as well as communicating a final design.
With a bachelors in Computer Science and Business, I chose to study for a masters in User Experience Design at UAL to focus on my creative side, and hone some of the design skills that I relied on during my undergrad.
Technology holds a dualistic power – both supporting and disrupting human activities. I endeavour to acknowledge this in the things that I make, cultivating the positive aspects, and mitigating the negatives.
