Placement Industries

Throughout my final year I have worked with the Royal Navy, focusing on their public engagement activities and suggesting how the Royal Navy could open up to the public through the everyday and mundane.

  • My experience at the RCA has led me to form Placement Industries, a studio focussed on placing artists and designers in unusual situations and contexts.  

    Placement Industries moves art from decoration in the lobby to the core of private business and the public sector, design from production to debate.  

    My creative practice embodies the idea of being the complete creative package, and as such encompasses a wide range of disciplines, with projects ranging from critical thinking, writing, photography, film, and illustration to workshops.
