To develop an understanding of essential design research skills, I undertook research based projects at university. For each, I would explore a concept, produce well structured research, develop a visual outcome and propose a solution based on research results. My two favourites I have included here.

In the first, I explored the concept ‘Righting a packaging wrong’. My focus was the recent uptake of CFL bulbs and the resulting issue of their disposal. I proposed a new approach to packaging could be a solution.

In the second, I dove into the organics industry in Sydney to understand it’s areas of weakness and opportunities. The information unearthed during this study was a life-turning moment when I first realised the power of user-focused research and user-led design.
