Hi, my name is elle
I have recently graduated from Loughborough University with a First Class Honours degree in Product Design and Technology (BSc) and I am now a Graduate Inclusive Design Consultant at BuroHappold Engineering.
I have a huge passion, and that is inclusivity and accessibility. During my placement year, I designed and manufactured bespoke equipment for disabled individuals all over the country. Ranging from sporting goods, to everyday products and equipment for hobbies/recreation.
My main aim as a designer is to assist people in every day life, whether that is through design for disability, medical design or assisting others in their designs to make them more inclusive.
I am certified at level 1 BSL (British Sign Language) and am currently undertaking my Level 2 BSL with ‘Don’t Shout Out!’ I aspire to qualify at interpreter level in the future.
A particular passion of mine is volunteering with individuals with additional needs and disabilities. I have worked at schools, holiday camps and charities (two of which were dedicated to designing bespoke products for disability).
