Rose is passionate about opportunities that allow her to combine design expertise and experience with empathy research. Her mission is to craft powerful visualisations that empower narratives of disadvantage and make vulnerable stories visible.
Skilled at drawing out the essence of multiple experiences, Rose translates research findings into clear, impactful insights that reflect the many faces of an issue. She expertly transforms complex realities of lived experience, identity and the systems people operate within into visual tools that catalyse and communicate innovative change.
An example of how Rose uses empathy research to create innovative and meaningful design solutions is a recent project that enabled tikanga (Māori custom). Harnessing Google Earth, she made it possible for Māori to virtually walk their land.
Rose is also skilled at understanding and synthesising a range of differing viewpoints, quickly surfacing and communicating the important issues that enable stakeholders to rally around a common purpose or goal.
Rose holds a Bachelor of Design with Honours (Visual Communication Design). She has received recognition at the Best Awards, including a bronze in Graphic Design and a finalist position in the Ngā Aho category. Rose was also a winner of the 2013 Contribeauty Data Visualisation Competition.
