JOLT is a new retail brand of design led products created in our studio, Designs In Mind in Shropshire. We support adults referred through mental health services to build their self-worth and become active members of society.

We design and create products for retail, with all designs starting as experimental workshops with members of our studio.

We aim to challenge the low expectation that surrounds those with mental health issues.

Meet the Makers

Meet the Makers

My mental illness developed as a result of excess stress and pressure caused through my job. One of the things about mental illness, it can strike at any time even when you least expect it. I was referred to Designs in Mind, who work with people in recovery to create JOLT products. It has been life changing coming here.

Designing for JOLT has been a very exciting project to be part of. It’s empowering because we share responsibility for the designs and as the process unfolds you can see the final piece coming together, it exceeds your expectations. The process is challenging, it's hard to imagine the finished product- but you have to let that go. The process is collaborative, everyone has different ideas and so things change and develop with input. There is a lot of decision making and it feels great when you get to that moment when everything clicks in to place and it works.
