I founded Caus Studio after becoming disenchanted by tech and design – years of building products that felt like they contributed very little to the world left me wanting something more meaningful, something with a cause (see what we did there?).
Caus started as a tiny design studio in the heart of London – we introduced ourselves as "Product people with a purpose", and that purpose was designing products that valued mental health.
The business had two core arms – working with doctors and professionals to build products for the mental health space, and collaborating with every-day products to make their products more mental health friendly.
Some of the personal highlights for me were collaborations with BounceWorks and the University of Yale, exploring innovative approaches to preventative and reactive mental health care.
Caus ultimately closed its doors in 2019 when the team decided to part ways.
I could tell a million stories, and share a million more lessons (just as soon as I get down to writing them). Caus was simultaneously the hardest, and most rewarding challenge of my career – and to this day, some of the most meaningful work I've ever done.
Caus now lives on as a side project – operating as a product & investment studio focussed on the mental health space.
