I am a creative person who’s very passionate about nature, art, design, music and philosophy, these influences have hugely shaped who I am as a designer today and my outlook on the world. I am very caring and honest which is reflected in my forward thinking approach to good design and UCD (user centred design). I like a challenge, teaching myself how to create professional graphics and logos which has added further to my versatility as a designer. Versatility played an important role during my placement at Riber Products Ltd where I was immersed within the plastics manufacturing industry, where I designed three products myself which have been manufactured and sold. I have always enjoyed using my initiative and my imagination to create things whether it is sketching, prototyping or designing products and graphics. I think it is imperative to look at problems we face today, like sustainability which I feel strongly about.

Myst is an indoor Green Wall panel made for modern city life with those in mind who don’t have easy access to nature. The vertical garden has a modular design which accommodates different user & plant needs. It can be used in an office, kitchen, bathroom or any living space, to improve productivity and air quality whilst transforming a lifeless space into a relaxing one through an infusion of nature. The system autonomously delivers water and nutrients to the plant’s roots in the form of a fine mist. The benefit of using mist means the roots absorb water molecules easier, consuming 80% less water and energy than other hydroponics, while also growing plants quicker.
