Graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree in Product Design from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.
Throughout my studies, I interned for the NHS Tavistock and Portman Gender Identity Clinic (GIC) in London and completed some commission work for the hospitality giant, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. These opportunities offered me the chance to use my design knowledge and soft skills while also gaining some valuable experience.
My passion comes from an obsession with design and I have always tried to work with objects, materials or content to create something entirely different. I volunteered my services to Grange Hockey Club to gain experience marketing a product with the aim of using my multidisciplinary skills to develop a career in digital marketing. This led to an internship opportunity with Scotland's leading live entertainment producer, Gilded Balloon, where I experienced working as part of the press and marketing team.
We are living in an evolving technology-driven world, where businesses nowadays are competing to maximise their online presence. If you believe design is created to solve specific problems, the challenge is then to market these designs. Consequently, we should focus on attracting rather than interpreting. That’s the beauty of marketing. I am actively seeking opportunities within this exciting area.
Outside of design and marketing, I also enjoy photography, playing hockey, baking and discovering new places. Exploring can sometimes be the best way of learning more. In the meantime, I look forward to beginning my next adventure in pursuing my creative career.
