Jasmine Bayliss

Business Developer & Product Design

Born in Hertfordshire to a family of Product Designers I came to Plymouth to study Product Design. I fell in love with Devon and after graduating with a first class degree I decided to stay. I am highly interested in human centred design and believe everything should be intuitive and user friendly; the simpler the better. I like to try and challenge myself to describe a concept in 10 words.

I love dogs, long walks on Dartmoor, board games, conversations by the pub fireside in winter and BBQ’s on the beach in summer.

In my spare time I run a kids mountain biking club and I can often be found on my mountain bike on Dartmoor or high in the Alps.
