As part of my continuing contribution to the education, design and packaging industry, I have attended a number of exciting conferences held in the USA, San Francisco Design Week (2014) and HOW Design Live (Chicago 2015) which has allowed me to implement innovative teaching and learning programs across a diverse range of students and client needs. Receiving the fellowship award has allowed me to travel to key design events such as San Francisco Design Week in 2014 and HOW Design Live, Chicago in 2015.
These events play an important role in connecting emotionally with other key designers.
