My process.

INNOVATING THE FUTURE OF DESIGN

My process has been developed to allow me to deliver a service covering early research, insight, concept design & development, prototyping and ultimately manufacture.

 To ensure that the outcome is delivered to the highest possible standards, I like to work on all stages of a project. Focusing on building long lasting relationships with my clients, we work together to design consumer focused products and solutions that create joyful user experiences.

Sometimes, collaboration is key to extract the most from a design process, so where necessary, I work with my network of creative minds in order to deliver the best possible outcome.

My process has four main stages:

 

01. DISCOVER

User research begins with a blank slate, assume nothing. From observing what a consumer will actually do to immersing myself into a scenario, I can build an accurate specification of a products and a consumers requirements.

My research has taken me to a variety of interesting places, building meaningful relationships and ultimately unearthing those little gems that really make a product truly innovative.

02. DESIGN

From a sketch on a napkin to refining a fully detailed photo-realistic product rendering, design is what excites me.

Learning from relevant insights as well as working through a creative process of design, iteration and refinement, my passion is to create innovative products that not only excite consumers, but also are game-changers in their respective markets.

Beyond this, always ensuring that the simplicity and intent of a product is retained by considering manufacture & assembly as well as budget from the outset.

03. DEVELOP

Often, I find that some of the greatest learning in design is through the simplest of models.

For me, the foundation of a successful product is to prototype, iterate and refine. Whether it be through 1:1 cardboard models, 3D printing functional prototypes or small production runs for consumer testing, we are always learning.

04. DELIVER

From the outset I consider manufacture and assembly, this ensuring that through concept design to detailed 3D CAD engineering, the product retains its integrity and purpose.

Beyond this, with over 10 years of experience and having built lasting working relationships, I can offer support and advice in product sourcing and manufacture both in the UK and abroad.

Looking beyond my process...

BRAND, STRATEGY & EXPERIENCE ARE THE FOUNDATION OF ANY DESIGN

Today, everyone is connected and the world is becoming an ever smaller space. The importance of brand and strategy in design is essential. My objective is to blend great product design with purposeful digital experience & user interface.

I find value in something as simple as creating a buzz around an unboxing experience, or simply providing an elegant, consumer focused packaging solution.
