The application of creative innovation with sustainable practice will be what drives the future of design. With the freedom to integrate the traditional world with new technologies, designers must claim responsibility for their impacts. The countless problems our world experiences makes the focus on environmental sustainability just as important as the product’s stance on socio-political, cultural, ethical and economic aspects and everything that lies within.
Although I find myself moving away from product design, my time on the course at Falmouth University has laid invaluable foundations on which my career will grow. With sustainability at the heart of my practise, I’ll be exposing myself to many corners of design, attempting to merge together techniques and industries while I find my professional direction.
