Hi! I'm Jacob
Technosy Designerd, Futurescuer & Enviromancer
I see technology as the great enabler. The wheel. The fire. But design is what decides how it touches our lives. I step into other people’s shoes, into minds of machines and I immerse myself in complex systems. I think about what should be done and how to do it. I think about what could be done and ask whether it should. I try, test, fail, learn and try again.
I have co-founded CUE Sense to use technology to help visually impaired people socialise and have helped design products and services for Nike, Google and Ikea. My work was exhibited in the Science Museum, Design Museum, V&A and a number of festivals.
Previously worked at AKQA, Takram, Med44, Hirsch&Mann etc.
MA/MSc Innovation Design Engineering
Royal College of Art & Imperial College, and
London College of Communication.
