About Sophie Horrocks

Sophie is a human-centred designer and researcher who believes that design has the power to improve human quality of life. Her work is driven by the principle that in order to achieve this, we must recognise the value of empathy-driven, not just evidence-based design. She applies this principle to the design of research, interfaces and environments; promoting inclusion and accessibility by using multi-sensory designs that go beyond just vision. 

Sophie recently graduated from the MA/MSc Global Innovation Design course at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London. Her project Sensaura gained recognition from Sir Jony Ive KBE, Professor Gerry McGovern OBE and Yves Béhar. Sophie previously worked in Hong Kong as a designer and researcher at The Fabrick Lab. Clients and exhibitions included Kering, Lane Crawford, Design Trust, Salone del Mobile and London Craft Week, among others.
