The Agency
The Agency is an initative that works with young people from marginalized areas to create social enterprises, projects and businesses aimed at having a positive impact on their local communities. Right now I’m working with a steering group of young people from London and Manchester. Through online and offline sessions we are co-designing a brand, content strategy, online home and set of tools that can help the organisation increase recruitment and partnerships nationwide.

Using these principles we created a number of interactive, playful and Covid-19 safe prototypes out in the community.
