who i am:
I hope you've already learnt a little bit about me, how I think and how I design from browsing this portfolio, but allow me to tell you more...
I'm someone who enjoys the small things in life. Whether it's spending time with friends, listening to Hamish and Andy podcasts or getting stuck in an endless YouTube video loop of dogs wearing socks (have a look, you won't be disappointed). As a designer, I try to incorporate something that makes people smile - from designing a chair that tells people to 'get on up' through memes in the hope of reducing sedentary behaviour, to creating a  mock campaign about symbol equality - I mean, why should the # get all the attention?
I believe that design is equally about creating an experience for the user, aesthetics and functionality.
My interests are continually changing, but I always enjoy learning new things and creating something unique. 
I’m passionate about the design process, with a love of brainstorming and prototyping, and always enjoy the challenge that is human-centered design. Through different projects I've been able to work on solutions for health, learning environments, furniture, the built environment, game design, Virtual /Augmented Reality and more, and a constant theme across these projects is a focus on the person using/seeing/feeling the end result. 
I enjoy creating physical products, smart devices and 'things', but I'm excited to continue exploring how designers like myself can use system and experience design to solve complex problems in the world. My interest in the built environment has also continued to develop through my recent honours project  - utilizing the world around us to make life better, easier, or just more fun!
who You are:
Having recently completed a Bachelor of Industrial Design (Honours), I'm looking for full-time or part-time work, as well as internships to gain further experience while looking for a permanent position.
I'm looking for interesting and innovative, and I'm ready to get started now!
If you think you suit me and I suit you, please get in touch!
You can find my LinkedIn to the left, or fill in the contact me form - I look forward to hearing from you. JR
