What makes quality design is the efficiency as to which the purpose of the design has been materialised.

What makes quality designers is their ability to define purpose.

My purpose is to reinstate, improve or conserve mental wellbeing through the design of dynamic systems and services and by emphasizing values such as openness, context and person dependency, and development through reflection in this process.

The world is shifting towards a transformative paradigm in which sustainable solutions can only be solved by industry, government, academia and local user communities collaborating to create local solutions that contribute to the larger whole. In order to a achieve this, design needs to be concerned with the understanding of societal value and the ethically responsible extraction of market value. [1] 

 A niche within these challenges that I am fascinated with, is design for behavioural change, empathy and social inclusion.

I believe that dynamic design, creation of empathy through storytelling, and catalyzed learning combined with a holistic approach can be used to develop meaningful, sustainable and adaptable solutions for all stakeholders connected with such challenges.
