“We have the opportunity to decide whether we simply do good design or we will do good with design” – David Berman

I am interested in projects that aim to help solve or create awareness for environmental and social issues. This has led to me to design a subscription box intended for young working urbanites to raise awareness of the UK bee decline for my final-year project. Each box focuses on a certain species of bee, for example solitary bees. Users will be able to construct their own ecosystem for bees by building a customisable solitary bee house including nets and instructions for a bee bath, a mud bath or a flowerpot. Using my skills as an illustrator and designer developed during my time at Loughborough, I hope to help make an impression in the future, communicating the social, cultural and environmental issues in today’s world.
