Gabriele is passionate about design and has a hands-on approach to developing a project. Her design evolves and is realised through user research, interaction and experimentation. In June of 2013, Gabriele completed a two year masters at London's Royal College of Art, having studied Design Products. After graduating from RCA she was interning at IDC in London. She was working on a very exciting medical packaging project for a Chinese medical device manufacturing client SteriLance. Gabriele Meldaikyte has exhibited her work internationally and is a winner of several worldwide exhibitions in Milan, Shanghai and Moscow. Currently she is looking for new opportunities in design consultancies based in London.

  • User-centered designer & researcher

    Streets Ahead is a group of neighbours in Stockwell, London, with the objective of greening their local urban spaces to create safe places for children to play and neighbours to meet. Elaine Kramer, of Streets Ahead, spoke about how, during this process, they have uncovered local stories and social history, for example, the artist Van Gogh, once lived around the corner. Their challenge, she announced, was for our team to look at how residents could connect their stories past, present and future, to the physical spaces of the local area.

  • User-centered designer & researcher

    Fairley House School provides specialised teaching facilities for the education of children with Dyslexia and other serious learning difficulties. My team's challenge was to conduct a detailed research while observing pupils in a school environment, analysing their behaviour during the classes and communicating with them and their teachers. As a result we came up with learning aids design which help their concentration and improve their level of knowledge and interest in the subject, particularly mathematics.
