Through projects I’ve pursued, my work has been driven by social change and design for ability. By pushing projects I’ve worked on like Ardú, an online learning platform for mothers in Direct Provision, I’ve seen the potential impact design can have on people living in our community.
Design for disability is assumed to be just wheelchairs and accessibility ramps, but the majority of people living in society with diversities have invisible conditions. My final year project focuses on designing for neurodiversity, considering how we can support people with conditions like Autism and their ability to navigate the public environment.
My foundation as a designer is my love for people and their individual stories, I try to challenge myself to create solutions that don’t overlook and empower those who aren’t being cared for by design.
