WDYK Lightning 5-minute Talk
In 2018 I was offered the opportunity by Cory-Ann Joseph to speak at Web Directions What Do You Know - lightning talks for novice speakers. I didn’t tank, and managed to chat a little bit about my approach to design.

My talk addressed designing for good - and different approaches to this. It's a huge space for discussion, and I think we tend to get caught up in our own power. Design and tech is in a really powerful position to drive social change. But have you noticed this industry starting to look really similar to our outdated, hegemonious societal structures? The majority of people in power are white, cishet, wealthy, privileged men. If we're going to use the power of tech and design to change the world, we have to start with our own teams. When our teams are truly inclusive, reflect and serve the diversity of our society - then we can make meaningful change.

Following that, I was engaged by John and Rosemary Allsopp to create illustrations of the speakers for the 2018 Code Conference. Have a look at them here. I'm open to digital and hand-drawn illustrations for comissions to raise funds toward my top surgery.
