As a design strategist & designer, I have assisted start-ups to global organisations find & implement purposeful design vision across a broad range of industries; consumer, architectural, medical & scientific, UX, service & FMCG for three decades. My key philosophy is one of being holistic & human-centred, challenging preconceptions by employing a confluence of; What Shapes, What Inspires & What Works to deliver meaningful, advanced & appropriate context solutions that are good for people, society & business alike.
