Designs in Mind

Creating a safe, creative space for adults referred by the mental health services.
Designs in Mind is a working studio, tucked away in Shropshire, where adults living with mental health challenges work together on ambitious, experimental art and design projects. Their studio is a hive of activity, with close to 100 of members who believe that design has the power to positively affect how we feel, not only in how it looks but also through the experience of making.
Meet The Founder

In the late 1990’s Designs in Mind founder, Jo Davis was working in a mental health day centre as a technical assistant. Using her knowledge and experience of the art world she set up a group within the day centre which, through time, developed its own identity and ambitions.

Fast forward 30 years and Designs in Mind occupies its own studio space, has a high street shop and works with a large group of artist-makers, all referred through adult mental health services.

Designs in Mind is a safe space, dynamic and ever evolving. It’s a social business and aims to become as independent as possible working on public art commissions, products for the shop and online sales, and more recently collaborating with major design studios.
