who are we?

freddie

Co-founder & director

Hi, I’m Freddie, I like to claim that I’m a London born Geordie but I think most northerners would disagree as, despite having been here for 6 years, I still pronounce it grass not grass. I studied at Northumbria university where I gained my BA (Hons) in Design for Industry and my MA.

 

I’m passionate about the use of design within innovation, I believe that beautiful insights can change the way with think, and make a difference in the world.

 

Fun Fact: I was a child model. Although you wouldn't be able to tell.

Co-founder & Director

I’m Justine, a French woman from Burgundy who fell in love with Geordieland during my Erasmus year at Northumbria University, Newcastle. After more than four years in the North East, a BA in Foreign Languages & Communications and my MA, I’m afraid I still sound very French when mentioning ‘opportunities’.

 

I’m passionate about people and this is why I started to work with Nuevo Destino, a French NGO helping families and their children living in the poverty-stricken Honduran jungle to become self-sustaining where I have been the Head of Communications since February 2017.  

 

Fun Fact: love Burgundy wines as much as Newcastle Brown Ale.

I am a passionate, and more than anything, I am passionate about people. This is the reason why I started to work with Nuevo Destino, a French NGO helping families and their children living in the poverty-stricken Honduran jungle to become self-sustaining where I have been the Head of Communications since February 2017.  

 

My story with Innovation is a story of love at first sight. I am a true believer that Innovation Design can help us all to make the world a better place and I have made my mission to work towards this goal.
