This has always been and will always be what we do (it is not box ticking or a nice to have). Our drive comes from our personal migration journeys - our experience is lived not learned.

Anoushka Rodda
Founder + Managing Director

Anoushka began her career as a designer after graduating with a First Class graphic design BA Hons from Kingston University. She then decided to direct her skills to account management, and now has nearly twenty years experience in the design industry. 

Having seen the impact of war and human rights violations first hand (her grandmother was born in Aleppo in Syria, her great grandparents were forced to leave their homes in Turkey during the Armenian genocide and her mother left Beirut during the civil war) Anoushka set up TEMPLO determined to use the positive power of design for social change. 

Anoushka has had experience with a broad range of sectors from education to charity and with clients including the United Nations, Amnesty International, London School of Economics, University of the Arts London and the British Council.

She is a guest lecturer at Kingston University, London College of Communication and Arts University Bournemouth and is a mentor for design students interested in the world of design management.
