Fast food packaging is excessive, bulky, frustrating to use and most importantly not that sustainable. My next project is focussed on redesigning the way consumers buy and carry fast food - this video explains why that has to be done.
The main focus of my final year has been in my graduation project, designing a bike for Africa. The aim of the project was not to learn about bicycle mechanics, but instead to gain an understanding of designing for emerging markets. Thanks to funding from the James Dyson Foundation and the Dave Granshaw Foundation I was able to spend a week in The Gambia talking to the children, teachers and mechanics who all regularly use bikes out there. The findings from this experience are now being fed into the design of a new bicycle frame.
