Playground Designer

I joined the Pentagon family as a visualiser in February 2018 and it is my job to communicate ideas and provide schools with a playful vision of what we do. Not only do I get the opportunity to help deliver real-life projects but what could be more fun than designing places intended for fun!?

I graduated in 2017 from the University of Brighton where I studied Interior Architecture. I spent three years developing an understanding of how people operate in specific environments and how to design them which is very translatable to my job. In my final year, I was selected to be part of a small design team working on a series of installations for primary school kids at Newhaven Fort. The aim of the project was to help regenerate an interest in the Fort whilst adhering to the nature and aesthetic of the building.

My friend and I designed and constructed three giant periscopes which wrapped around intricate parts of the building and became interactive surveillance pieces. Seeing your work being used in an educational context makes you feel that extra bit proud. It is simply a rewarding field of work and something I am glad I can continue.

When I haven’t got my design head on, most of my spare time revolves around making and playing tunes!

I am a big music fan and have been producing music since I was about 12.
