Adrian Draigo’s ethos is to marry modern design with real sustainable practice. Whilst being a practical designer, Adrian is also interested in experimental and conceptual approaches to design and it’s relationship to people and the environment

Adrian has been keen to share his enthusiasm for creative design through educational programs and workshops, helping young people foster their own practical creativity and looking at waste as a potential resource rather than just an end.
