I am Katherine Snow, I am a designer based in Edinburgh.


In 2017 I graduated from Product Design at Edinburgh College of Art, however my work has always been inherently interdisciplinary. I am fascinated by our interactions with things -  physical things, graphic things, digital things - and how meaning is conveyed, experiences produced and culture created throughout these different spaces. 


My practice studies use; exploring mindset, motivation, affect and narrative - all that happens between a person and an object. My aim is to create meaningful products through thoughtful playful interactions. This has led me to complete a residency within the Design Informatics department of the University of Edinburgh and I am now continuing my research within an MRes in Perception at University of St Andrews. 


I am also 1/3 of Povo, a new project creating, consulting and thinking in Edinburgh, with Linda Ma & Briana Pegado.


I play guitar (a lot), have been the back-end of a pantomime camel and was once accidentally cast in a production of King Lear.
