As a freelance designer I regularly work on brand new ideas and existing product ranges. During that time I've had the opportunity to work on some interesting new ventures, ranging from wireless headphones to electro-surgical devices. Please get in touch to discuss your new project and how I can help.
Experience and General Info:
8 years product design experience
Highly professional, driven to create clean, practical design solutions
Experience in wide range of sectors, from consumer products through to medical design
ISO:13485, ISO:62366, and ISO:14971 experience for medical device development
As a product designer I'm well adapted to working on new design challenges across a broad spectrum of product sectors.
Examples of some of the product sectors I have experience working in:
Consumer electronics / children's toys and games / medical drug delivery devices / surgical instruments / men's and women's soft goods / audio-visual equipment / personal protective equipment / HVAC and air filtration products / computer peripherals / cookware / extreme sports equipment.
I offer a full range of development services across the complete product design process; from initial concept development through to final manufacture.
Working with a diverse range of clients, I undertake both full product development projects and provide specialised support at key stages. Every project is planned around your unique requirements and my design services are tailored to provide the best possible support.
During all development projects the creation of a rationalised design specification is the first step to any successful project. Ergonomics, life-cycle analysis and primary research are all used to explain and justify important design decisions.
User research and development of design insights
Regulatory standards and CE certification

By selectively evaluating concepts against the design goals, we develop products with the best technical and commercial prospects.
I offer a full range of conceptual design services to explore and refine the different options to solve your project. From high quality product illustrations that explain important features clearly, to photo-realistic presentation materials for final promotion; I'm driven to deliver exceptional quality across every project.

Robust engineering allows us to create working designs faster, improve performance, and lower production costs.
As an experienced design engineer I know the importance of defining design concepts that are feasible to develop and mass produce efficiently. To enable this, design development follows an iterative process, where concepts are rigorously tested and improved to ensure they meet target specifications. Throughout each project design for manufacture and assembly (DfMEA) principles are followed to ensure ease of final production and fast product assembly.

As a start-up company on an tight schedule, we were very happy with responsiveness and quality of work. His design and prototyping experience was impressive, and he provided great advice on areas outside the scope of our project - saving us valuable time.
Rob has been extremely helpful at every stage of my project. He had the information I needed at the start, and advised me on steps I wasn't even aware of. I highly recommend his services and will be working with him again on future projects.
