It is important to me to understand the context and the people that I design for. In order to be able to successfully involve users in the design process, I have supplemented my design education with a degree in journalism. The interplay between design and journalism has provided me with valuable tools that I am able to use as joint owner of the design company Good Design.
My MA Project builds on the experiences of homeless people living on the street. The result is a multifunctional product which combines storage of personal belongings with a place to sleep at night. The tent bag supports and improves the current lifestyle of the target group by meeting some of their most basic needs.
