Basic Design

Theunis is C0-Founder & Principle Industrial Designer of Basic Design, and has extensive and varied career experience, all of which has contributed to his passion for social entrepreneurism. Theunis graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design with a degree of Industrial Design, hoping to change the course of his life by transitioning from maker/industry worker to Designer/maker. He believes that understanding global and local systems is critical to making design more efficient and impactful. Being a native South African and having travelled and researched global issues extensively has aided his personal understanding, and he aims to continue to work with communities to develop socially sustainable practices through design and innovation.
