I'm Violet, a young graphic designer based in London focusing on sustainable design. I’m a conceptually driven thinker who is passionate about designing for purpose, and in particular how graphic design can be used to inform and educate on sustainability.
Throughout my time studying Graphic Design over the past six years, as a student and through freelance work, I’ve realised how much of an importance design and creativity has within our society. Graphic Design is a social activity, and by its broadcasting nature, it influences lots of people. With this, comes a responsibility, and for a while now my passion has been to infuse my design projects with actions that help mitigate the climate crisis from further damage to the planet and the people. To reference my findings from my dissertation, I truly believe that if we transition from designing for consumerism to designing for sustainability, and, if sustainability is at the heart of design, then design could become an integral part of the solution to the survival of our planet.
