Stuart Underwood

An energetic and enthusiastic designer with a passion for experimenting with new materials and design processes to find interesting and unusual results with the aesthetics and feel of the products. There is an emphasis put on the outcome and how it affects the users directly. In this day and age there should be a focus on involving the users directly in the design process, both in the design of products but also transferring the knowledge gained through the past four years into the design of immaterial services where design thinking and processes can be extremely valuable in tackling social issues.
