Rowan Baxter

I enjoy exploring design in everyday life and refining my style through inspiration and various projects. I particularly enjoy materialising ideas through model making and find this to be the best way to iterate designs. I am drawn to the technical challenges inherent in product design, presenting opportunities for problem-solving and innovation.
