what i can offer

Product design and development can be a daunting prospect, but it needn’t be.  Below are some of the steps needed to bring to market your ideas, all of which I have vast experience in.


Consumer Research

Good product design begins with truly understanding the needs of the consumer.



Very rarely is the first idea the best one, I spend the time to evaluate all options before refining the chosen concept.

CAD Development

Time to move into the world of 3D and start to refine the design ahead of manufacturing feasibility study.

Design for Manufacture

Often the most overlooked part of product design, ensuring your chosen design is manufacturable is critical to success.


Experienced with working with manufacturers scattered across the globe, ensuring the design stays true and hits commercial targets is key.


Present your finished idea in a professional and life-like manner, whether for marketing collateral or packaging material.
