Values and Giving Back

Design for social change

Janina founded Janina Neumann Design with the vision of "Design for social change". Janina started to develop this vision in 2013 during her Art & Design Foundation Course when she explored inequalities around the world. Janina then studied how to use design as a medium to raise awareness and how to develop personal commitment from individuals so that they could deliver social value. When Janina left University in 2016, she decided that she needed to implement this vision herself and so Janina founded JND. 

Janina is particularly passionate about supporting organisations that promote inclusion by connecting people with different backgrounds to share their insights, experience, and skills. Janina finds this important because it helps to build people's networks and confidence to try out new activities, which has a significant effect on their personal and professional development.
