award winning design studio with an internationally recognised
track record of creating positive impact in society.
I co-create "studio projects" that are self commissioned, years in the making, developing into award winning social enterprises."Partner projects" are months in the making, providing initiative of transformational social impact. My studio practice benefits from a self designed approach called "Natura", formed and informed by a design background, international development and personal lived experience.
I hold associate positions at the worlds most prestigious Art & Design Colleges and I am the Social Designer in Residence at InnovationRCA. I have been successfully delivering mentoring programmes in social impact for design students and professionals across two decades. In 2021 I launched "Natua", a unique and completely free social impact mentoring programme.
My design practice is a community interest company, and is headquartered in Brighton's North Laine, at "Public Design Studios" a safe and enabling community environment where I provide over 500 hours of pro bono Service Design a year. I am a network member of the British Design Council & a fellow at The Royal Society of Arts.
My practice has been B Corp certified since 2013 & I am a board member for the Brighton Festival.
