Designer. Believer.

Storyteller.

We can design a better world, together. 

What I Believe

I witnessed the introduction of the internet into our homes, when our lives were changed forever.

 

Today, living in the information age, we are at a critical point, where technology and design genius meet at the crossroads. Our hope is that we design a better future.  We are all designers and share the responsibility. This is my belief. 

 

Where will we be tomorrow? Who knows? But the Design toolkit will prepare us for the challenge.

My Design Process

The Design Thinking process is highly respected worldwide due to its human-centred approach to creative problem solving 

(Popularised by IDEO and the Stanford d.School in California)

My Teaching Process

Teaching design should also follow a process. This can be applied to a personalised learning program, either for adults or children.
