I am currently working as a Product Designer at CORGI HomePlan which is part of the OVO Group. Coming from a background in interaction design, I strive to produce solutions with users at the heart of the process, basing design decisions on in-depth user research. I am fascinated by technology and its impact on our lives as we interact with ever-changing systems. My experience as a designer has placed me in the unique position of being able to carry out research, align teams, design solutions and improve operations.
I attended The Glasgow School of Art and gained a Bachelor of Design in Interaction Design with first class honours. I felt privileged to have the opportunity to merge art and design with technology – two passions since childhood. The course constantly evolved to push boundaries and challenge our ideas. As students we were required to apply imagination, creativity and vision to technological innovation.Visit Interaction Design
For my final year on Interaction Design I created an application called HouseMate, built in honour of Irene Isobel Michie, a Glasgow School of Art student who had a passion for art and technology throughout her life. She suffered with dementia for many years before she passed away in 2006 and I envision HouseMate to be an application created to return some dignity and independence to anybody living with the disease.Visit HouseMate
