Tony and Fran wanted The Steam Room to reflect their Hong Kong heritage, their vision to make dry cleaning sustainable and their strong desire to advocate for East Asian designs. This project was a complete re-design, Interior Architecture, Interior Design, Branding Design, Illustrations, Website Design, it had it all. This project was a joy to work on and the final outcome is arguably London’s trendiest dry cleaners.

DESIGN STRATEGY

UAL:FUEL4Design: Future Education and Literacy for Designers Erasmus+ Programme

The main objectives of this project are to develop, test, and implement new approaches and resources to provide learners and educators with innovative and adaptable tools to imagine, perform and enact a plurality of futures by design. UAL Principal Investigator, Dr Betti Marenko, brought me on to develop the design strategy for a set of ‘Future Philosophical Pills’ that allow educators to better diagnose ideas and use futures practice to inform future design education. Next I will be the rapporteur at ‘Speculative Spaces’ a 3-day workshop at the Design Museum where design educators will test the initial findings.

EXPERIENCE DESIGN

Land Services - WSP

Land Services has five key disciplines, Land Referencing, Engagement, GeoSpatial Systems, Land & Property, and Surveying. I was responsible for communicating complex ideas, systems, and processes, creating compelling visuals, interactions, and experiences that connect with a wide range of audiences, delivering quality touchpoints across various channels. I designed and developed the CX strategy using human-centered design and Service Design methodologies to ensure an enjoyable and accessible service for all its stakeholders. I also produced visuals for marketing, learning, external and internal Comms, and designed materials for their clients including style guides, data visualisations, and public engagement materials.

PRODUCT DESIGN

Yu Zhou Jiu

Yu Zhou is a Baijiu company based in Chongqing, Schezuen. Baijiu is a traditional and widely consumed spirit that is commonly found at wedding parties and Mahjong tables but is seen as something for older generations to enjoy. Yu Zhou wanted a brand and bottle that could help them break the younger market. We developed two concepts. Craft was designed for Chongqings’ tactile consumers, those who were influenced by a product's heritage, how it was made, and where it has come from. Consumers that would appreciate a factory tour, learning the ancient Baijiu making process, and learning the history of the brand. Low Key Luxury was designed for Chongqings trend consumers, a group who are distinguishing themselves as something new from China’s traditional interpretation of luxury but want high-quality products that are both modern and refined with an appreciation of China’s Art Deco period.

INFOGRAPHIC & PUBLICATION

Cultural Production by Deirdre O'Mahony for Teagasc Horizon 2020 CERERE Project

Responding to the need for space for farmers, scientists, food producers, and others to exchange knowledge and information on heritage cereals, Deirdre produced a project for Teagasc Ireland’s Agricultural Research Agency. I designed a pamphlet including a Social Network Analysis as well as banners to frame Sadhbh Gaston’s commissioned work, Grain 1 – 5 which was exhibited during Tulca.

BRANDING DESIGN

Botanical Backpackers Belfast is located just next door to Belfast’ botanical gardens. Erika, the owner, wanted a brand that could help attract the clientele she was looking for. With most hostels in Belfast catering to the party travellers and the business visitors, she wanted to create a space for the conscience solo backpacker who wanted to offset their impact on their travels.
