Designer’s Quest(ionnaire): Graphic designer Lottie Crumbleholme

The Designer’s Quest(ionnaire) is a Design Feast initiative that describes and captures a designer’s perspective in a succinct format. I discovered Lottie Crumbleholme at blog Monoscope where her Lost Skills Depository project (detail above) was featured. This series of booklets, printed on salvaged paper, “encourages people to extend the life of well-loved clothes by providing them with simple instructions for basic sewing techniques used in mending.” The meaning and matching form of this work instantly had me hooked. Lottie is “interested in developing ways of communicating messages that encourage people to adopt more environmentally sustainable behaviour.” Read more about her insightful take on design and designing.
