I'm a communication designer based in Norwich, UK with an interest in science, sustainability and society.
My recent work aims to empower people and to make positive changes that affect the real world, challenging existing perspectives where necessary. Focussing on people and the problems that they face I often tackle complex issues with the intention of simplifying them.
I keep things simple and crisp whilst incorporating emotional and tactile properties. I am keen to experiment and use any technologies and believe that to prevent my practice from stagnating it is important to keep moving and learning while respecting the qualities of traditional design and artistic techniques.
