I’m Jack Barnes, my undergraduate degree was in Product Design with my final year project looking at Adaptive Dementia clothing ( Design Registered on the GOV.uk website – 6015905 ).
I have a desire to help improve the quality of life and dignity of those living with Dementia through design and would be keen to pursue a career that would allow me to achieve this.
Although the last 18 months have caused my original ideas and plans to change, I feel I have achieved a bespoke sensory book that my Grandma, who was living with dementia, could have enjoyed and looked at fondly. Empowering her to lead the reminisce about her life to family and carers.
