About Josie Tucker
After studying Illustration and Visual Media at LCC, creative and climate activist Josie graduated from the Royal College of Art’s Visual Communication MA in 2017. Since graduating, Josie worked in a variety of different roles, both in-house and freelance whilst also being the head of visual identity for Brainchild Festival.
In 2017, Josie co-founded ‘climate club’ and creative organisation, Adapt, with designer Richard Ashton. Today, the duo look to use design and humour to communicate climate issues in a new way, with the aim of sharing knowledge, encouraging action and building a community of motivated activists.
Josie’s work with Adapt has set a brilliant example of using creative skills to help bring about positive change. Over the past few years, Josie’s work with Adapt has seen her produce everything from environmental exhibitions, campaigns encouraging people not to be a ‘Fossil Fool’, conversation guides to help navigate awkward party climate chat, and most recently, ‘Protest Gear’, a series of sustainable scarves emblazoned with slogans such as “Clean Up Your Act”.
So if you’re wondering how you can turn your own creative strengths to help the collective cause, or what you can do to be more climate conscious in your own career, this is an essential watch.
