Buoy is my response to the brief 'Citizens as Shapers' set by the RSA's 2019 Student Design Awards. We were invited to create a solution that harnessed digital tools to increase the quality and quantity of citizens' participation in democratic processes.

I undertook a process of research within the homeless community, learning about potential users wants and needs, analysis, concept creation and iteration.

The concept for Buoy is an app which utilises increasing levels of internet and smartphone usage amongst homeless people by connecting them with politicians and UK Parliament via forums and a reformed voting system for those with no fixed address. I also created the visual identity for the service.

I won the award, set by FutureGov and sponsored by Twitter.
