Industrial Design project by Malaika Franks


I am passionate about how design can be used as a tool to create radical and sustainable change in people’s lives. Design gives someone the practical means to empower communities, change perceptions, level ability and accessibility gaps and make a difference in an individual’s lives. Through my design practice I hope to make a positive impact on the world around me. My work has been centred around: How to ethically engage communities as a designer, removing barriers to access in public spaces and using design to address social issues, from gun violence through to the refugee crisis.
