Hi! My name is Emma and I am a Junior Graphic Designer and aspiring design research writer.
I am definitely a thinker and heavily idea driven. I am always looking to learn something new that can aid me in my design practice. I tend not to look toward trend driven aesthetics (though that does excite me too!) when creating and instead like to build from the ground up. What motivates and engages people? How do they interact with the world around them? What influences them to do so? Exploring systems and structures of influence and communication are what my primary interests are rooted in. I believe once we as designers can understand this, we can bring about more effective change for the betterment of our world.
I graduated from the Glasgow School of Art with a degree in Communication Design, specialising in Graphic Design. I have started this blog as a method in aiding my own design development and research processes. Research and writing has always been an intrinsic part to my design practice.
