"As Tim Brown, CEO of IDEO put's it 'the consumer moves from being a passive receiver to an active participant.' When design is conceived this way, the designers role is to think about the human experiences first, rather then just the thing itself." - Botsman, R and Rogers, R (2011). What's Mine Is Your's. London: Collins. p188.

Joshua Davey's approach to design is a result of this shift in consumer awareness. His practice involves of problem solving and design thinking, with emphasis on the unique empathetic experience for the audience.

This methodology provides a platform for designs that are flexible; that can be stretched, pushed & pulled to engage the consumer on each touch point of the product lifecycle.

He has recently graduated with a BA in applied communications (Visual) at Billy Blue College of Design and is open to Internships, Freelance, Full-Time and Project work.

On the side he is working on ‘Owl,' a project that has been developed over the past eight months to bridge the gap between the visually impaired and all the information that resides around them.
