CV & Portfolio
I'm a Product Design Engineer with a passion for the outdoors. My design style is heavily influenced by my love of the outdoors, the whole industry has driven me to make my designs more open, accessible and durable than regular designers.
As so often is the case with products designed for the outdoor market, I try to make sure my designs look equally at home on the daily commute as they do halfway up a cliff face coated in mud.
My aim for my designs is to continuously improve life outside of the office, outside of the 9-5 routine. Getting people into the wilderness and enjoying the journey along the way.
If you go through my portfolio I can show you how I could design for you. By leaning on my strengths, 3D visualisation and CAD technical skills. Designing products that are functional, first and foremost, but are also beautiful and modern designs. Often leaning on the side of overly industrial but never steering away from it looking beautiful.
As you can tell from the title of my degree I specialise in concept generation whilst also having the technical knowledge to make feasibly manufacturable products.
