Saskia Baard

Saskia is a designer, explorer, and problem solver. She loves stories, being outdoors, and making music. Saskia studied Visual Communication Design at Stellenbosch University, where her design work mostly revolved around environmental, social and political issues. After graduating, she made a move to Amsterdam and worked at a social design studio for a year, developing a further interest in community development and the role design can play in development and problem solving. She believes that it is no longer products or things that need to be designed, but systems and solutions.
Recently she worked in Morocco for three months and is currently based in Oxford as a freelance designer, planning her next adventure.
