Currently studying BA (Hons) Sustainable Product Design, Falmouth University in Cornwall. So far, the course has fed my drive towards sustainablity and has helped me develop into the designer I am today.
SAND design was born out of the ambition to be professional and add a brand to my Portfolio. The name derives from the Cornish meaning of my Surname 'Trathen' which is; 'A Place by the Sand'. I belive sustainability is emulated through heritage and timeless design, as great design is the forever developing furture.
I am a Grounded product designer, completing freelance work alongside my studies. My interests in design currently have been in sportswear, particularly swimming, as it is something I'm very passionate about and an activity I enjoy. Sketching, Concept development, Rapid prototyping and Autodesk Inventor & Fusion 360 are just some of the skills that i have and use to convey my designs effectively.
I'm always looking for creative ideas and new techniques to develop my knowledge.
