Devon Blackwood

With a strong passion for design, from the creation of gadgets to conceptual aesthetics I feel comfortable knowing that I've chosen the right path. While I'll continue on this journey, I've learnt the importance of communication through innovation. I thrive to show through my work thevalue of helping others less fortunate. I am a strong believer in sustainable design and contributing to an enriched future through the use of clean technology, a theme which is maintained throughout my projects.

I push my self in all parts of design from visualization to the manufacturing of products. After a years experience within the design industry, I am confident in my future aspirations. I am ready to take my journey on to new heights and begin my professional career.
