I'm a creative director and communications designer exploring the power of purposeful design. For 15+ years I’ve been innovating across the fields of design, journalism and academia - translating complex information into meaningful narratives for people in their everyday lives - usually around environmental and social challenges. This happens through visual and participatory storytelling built into exhibitions, installations and workshops. From 2000, I earned my stripes working for celebrated creative mavericks such as Thomas Heatherwick, Marcel Wanders and Atelier Van Lieshout. As early as 2005, I was regularly promoting sustainable design for both online and print publications. In 2009, I started my own design practice to create groundbreaking public engagement projects that build capacity for reflection and co-creation. I'm grateful for the regular invitations I receive to speak, judge and teach on my specialist areas of knowledge.
