PHOTOGRAPHY A series of photographs from my personal collection which show strong geometric imagery in day to day life. My love for photography comes from the realisation that it is a process where we create art out of everyday life, allowing us to appreciate the world around us

SKILLS

ABOUT ME To me a Product Designer is someone who improves the environment in which we live in by creating products that are needed and enhance lives both functionally and aesthetically. My aim is to develop a design methodology and skill set which encompasses understanding of human behaviour and truly comprehends what people require. For me, design is about understanding materials, processes and the potential they have in finding creative product solutions. At the same time it is critical that we challenge the use of materials and find new processes that acknowledge our limited global resources and environment.
