Sea designer up for the challenge

Kathryn Woolf

A Penryn businesswoman has been appointed as a design ambassador to support the Design Council’s latest national initiative.

Kathryn Woolf, who runs Sea Communications in Jubilee Wharf with her husband Robert, has been chosen to support the Design Council’s Keeping Connected Challenge in Cornwall.

The project will see 15 schools across Britain work with a professional designer to develop new approaches to help older people stay better connected with their communities and younger generations.

Woolf has been paired with Penrice Community College in St Austell, the only school in Cornwall involved in the project.

She said: “It’s really exciting to be recognised by the Design Council for the work I do and be invited to support such a brilliant project.”

After the initial stage, five schools will then be invited to London to pitch in a Dragon’s Den style pitch at the Design Council’s offices for a chance to win £5k.
