Designer / maker / dreamer / doer · Creator of Hexatope

Charlotte is a designer / developer based in London, working across a wide spectrum of disciplines ranging from electronics to fine glasswork. Furthermore, she's running a quite popular Youtube channel where she does lots of book reviews and other interesting stuff; she has not yet found a craft she does not wish to master.

While undertaking an MA in Computational Arts she created Hexatope, a combination of her two central vocations of jewellery design and web development. Hexatope allows anyone to design their own jewellery by intuitively interacting with a hexagonal grid entirely in the browser. Designs are then produced in precious metal using 3D-printing technology and traditional metalwork.

Charlotte's going to talk about the integration of artistry to the web and how practical design techniques can evolve with computational thinking.
