Designer at NB Studio
I believe design is best realised when it's driven by strong insight, content and context, no superfluous styles.
● Which category are you standing for?
New Blood Trustee
● How will you support D&AD over the next three years?
For the design industry to continue to thrive, the relationship between education and industry must continue to strengthen. The New Blood trustee position is the ideal springboard to get in amongst things. I think the most exciting work the world currently has to offer is taking place in the spaces between the disciplines - creative no-mans-land. And whilst traditional design skills are still fundamental, education should be shepherding young creatives into thinking way beyond the abilities of the Mac screen or applications of yesteryear.
We're living in arguably the most technically progressive era of all time and technological innovation deserves further recognition within the New Blood Awards.
● Why should D&AD Members vote for you?
New Blood enabled me to start conversations with people who I otherwise would have never met - that's a prospect worth trying to increasingly share, in my opinion.
