Then designed product to give away at the ‘relaunch’ the concept was based on the cotton industry using the slogan ‘un pick history’ packaging toothpicks; I screen printed on cotton.
I love design and art.
I love being in the outdoors; kayaking, walking, cycling, climbing, I like things which are hard work and things which scare me.
For the past 9 months I have been captain of my university kayak club, which has been both rewarding and has been invaluable in the knowledge I have gained. (as well as being ridiculously hard work). Last summer I spent 3 weeks kayaking in the alps; mainly Austria and Slovenia- which was absolutely awesome!!
