.. A little bit about Rosie

Having studied design at degree and post graduate Level for over 6 years in 3 different European countries, I have come to agree with the theorist Kees Dorst, “in an increasingly interconnected world problems are equally as inter-connected.” As a result, critical and systemic thinking have come to underpin my understanding of design and the related disciplines of user experience, service, future forecasting, product, interface and brand design.

I spent the first half of my studies exploring ‘pure’ design. Building on this I successfully migrated onto the Masters course to explore the alternative culture of problem solving that utilise entrepreneurial practices at Aalto Arts and Startup Sauna, Finland. As a part of my personal career development I also worked with several start-up companies in London and Helsinki before returning to Glasgow to complete my final year of study.

As a result my design methodology adopts both the qualitative research & problem-framing of ‘design thinking’ with [the practice validation methods of ‘entrepreneurial practices.’
