As a designer I have always followed my keen interest in product interaction by exploring how products can benefit and improve lifestyles through touch. I have a strong belief that exploration through early sketch models and 3d models are the foundations of beautiful and functional designs. Whilst on placement for a year I was designing retail displays for a number of high end clients and have accumulated experience ranging from initial designs to print ready artwork and manufacture. With this knowledge I feel confident to build and progress into a career in the design industry.
