I take a user-centred approach to design. I aim to provide meaningful, well considered solutions that provide worthwhile experiences to consumers. My goal is to create beautiful designs that embrace our creativity whilst appreciating our individuality encouraging meaningful experiences with what we own.

Through childhood, we spend our time exploring, learning, playing & discovering, but as we progress to adulthood, these experiences are lost. The beautiful memories created in these activities are not often done later in life and we accept this loss. Why?

The Morris System takes a new approach to modular furniture encouraging consumers to think about the items in their space and play with their furniture. There is no need to lose play later in life, rather we should rethink how and what we play with.

The Morris_001 is a furniture play set made from engaging pieces that are as beautiful as they are fun. Consumers are encouraged to build the furniture themselves and engage with the process. And when the time comes that their current solution is no longer suitable, simply disassembly, add or remove parts, and make something new. Continue the play and engage the imagination.

Sky Companion

Working from home has become the new norm, but with this have arisen many challenges that we are still addressing. The Sky Companion has been designed to aid with some of the most common issues faced in this new working environment. The device itself has been designed with a simple rotating interface and changing surface texture that engages users intuitively, whilst the desktop software run on users? computers has been similarly designed with simple, non-invasive features including focus timers to encourage set periods of intense focussed working, work calendars to maintain a strict work-life balance, and animated notifications that engage but don?t distract during the workday. The companion itself is made from injection moulded recycled ABS with all components being consciously sourced. The end device is sustainable in its conception whilst also considering end of life disassembly with the use of fastenings within the unit.

The result is an intuitive, familiar, easy to use desktop work aid that removes some of the frustrations of working from home.
