"A real eye for product design" - Stephen Briars, Creative Director, The Conran Shop.

I believe design has many purposes, one being to create JoyI take a meticulous approach to product design through a considered blend of materials, form and function with the aim being to create products that bring a positive experience to peoples lives.

 

I enjoy tackling the unfamiliar. Taking on a project where I have no past experience with a particular  industry allows me to start my creative process with no preconceptions. I believe this is where truly unique ideas and products originate.

Since graduation from the Sheffield Institute of Arts, Sheffield Hallam University in 2018 with a 1st class honours degree in product design, I've gone on to develop patented products for the construction industry during my work with Gripple, as well as see my first product, the SW1 spinning wheel, receive recognition from various industry awards and magazines.

 

I currently work full time as a professional product designer, whilst furthering my own design practice.
