Graduated with a first class, MDes Product Design Degree from Sheffield Hallam University in 2012. I then chose to work within the design industry specialising in manual kitchen appliances for theSource UK. During my time at theSource I worked closely with renowned brands John Lewis, Lakeland, Taylor’s Eye Witness, Bisbell Magnetic Products and Sabatier to name a few. My time here enabled me to get numerous products to market, including a patented design that was launched in spring 2015.
During my 3 years at theSource I was heavily involved in product design, packaging and visualisation efforts for a range of clients including the companies own housewares brand. In addition to designing early products for the Nosh brand, I was also influential in the brands web presence and graphic design, whilst directing product imagery and advertising. This enabled Nosh to grow from a small experiment to a successful standalone brand.
I have recently taken the next step in my career and joined DKB Househould UK Ltd. Here I work closely under the Design Manager as a part of an in-house design team assisting in all stages of the design process. Working under several kitchenware brands my responsibilities as a Product Designer are spread throughout all stages of the design and development process.
Prior to joining theSource in 2012, I worked as a freelance designer and also held a design position at Disruptive Innovation. During my time there I worked closely with clients such as 3M and Unilever. I also had the opportunity to work with multiple start-ups and small businesses, designing and strategising entire brands.
