I took the long way around getting into design. Having previously worked as a veterinarian for 10 years, I currently study graphic design at Edinburgh College. Throughout my course I have had the fantastic opportunity to work with agencies such as Whitespace, Amaze Realise, Campfire, Skyscanner Design and The Gate.
In 2017, I became involved with the Daydream Believer’s project - a program designed alongside agencies to engage school pupils and encourage them to think creatively. This project has since grown and in September 2018 we launched our new pilot curriculum which we hope to make available across Scotland in the near future. If you would like to see more or get involved with this project please click here or watch the official trailer by Campfire Agency.
TEDx Youth came to Glasgow in May 2018, and I was fortunate enough to be chosen to speak on the topic of creativity and our place in an ever more AI dependent world. This was a fantastic opportunity to speak to and (hopefully) inspire the younger generation to think creatively no matter what field the choose to go into.
