changing the world, a grain of rice at a time

Our Story

What We Do

We are a design practice using creative technology and visual communication for social good. We view each project as a creative seed which we plant in people’s minds to encourage conversations and actions to tackle social issues.

Our Mission

Our mission is to co-explore alongside the wider community how design and creative tech can be better used as a tool to realise our vision of positively changing the world, one grain of rice at a time!

Our Values

We work across a variety of themes and love all things interactive & tech, but we only work on projects or with clients who aim to make the world a better place or improve people’s lives.

I’m Safiya, an associate lecturer and freelance graphic designer who likes to challenge the diversity and representation within Western design pedagogy. Apart from designing for social good and teaching within Higher Education, my practice focuses on accessible and inclusive design and editorials. I enjoy reading, a nice cup of herbal tea and going for runs when the sun’s out.

I’m Maria and I am a designer working with creative tech, illustration, graphic and interactive design. I am a Royal Society of the Arts Fellow, member of the Digital Maker Collective since 2017, and currently a part-time associate lecturer and tutor for BA Graphics at Sheffield Hallam University. I am also the Design and Outreach Officer at Child Rights International Network. I am a film nut and have a passion for music, especially original soundtracks!

I’m Bristy, a designer and maker. My practice focuses on branding, publications, book making, jewelry making, 2D animation and accessible design. I am also the Lead Graphic Designer at Maternal Aid Association (MAA) and I run a jewelry shop, Thread & Rock, with my sister. I enjoy learning new recipes and I often get lost while listening to music and reading books.

I'm Anna, a designer currently based in Japan, passionate about visual communication and creative tech with a human-centric approach. I'm also an Experience Designer at EPAM Systems who helps solve problems through being curious, empathetic and designing people-friendly products and services. If I'm not designing or coding, you can find me Hawaiian & Tahitian dancing and exploring good eats around town.
