Hazel Saunderson

 

Hazel is a Scottish designer, marketer and writer. She studied design in three leading European design schools in Glasgow (UK), Paris (France) and Cologne (Germany) as part of the MEDes exchange program and graduated from the Glasgow School of Art.

Hazel is currently working for a not-for-profit organization, where she is inspired by progressive design thinking and the power of social media. She believes that good sustainable design should facilitate meaningful dialogues with its users and provide people with an alternative means of interpreting the roles that products and services play within their lives.

A keen cyclist, she writes a bicycle based blog and has written a research report titled ‘An Exploration of the Cycling Culture in Europe’. She also loves cooking, photography and capoeira!
