I’m Harriet, I am a hardworking and creative individual currently studying for an MA in Product Design at Manchester Met University. My background lies within Textile design and I have always been passionate about exploring the flexibility and diversity of materials. Following the completion of my BA (Hons) in Testiles and Surface Design from Bucks New Uni, I spent a number of years completing several creative internships and forging a career in marketing. As this career path didn’t allow me to fully utilise my creative abilities I chose to return to education.
This has allowed me to gain the knowledge and skills to design more functional and utilitarian pieces, opposed to the concept pieces I had made previously. I have always taken inspiration from the subversive use of materials, and products which serve a dual purpose. I believe design should be both practical and beautiful, with the ability to transform the space around us.
