Sustainable Product Design Consultancy

Circular Economy, Ecodesign, Lifecycle and Systems Thinking

Providing technical engineering and sustainable product design expertise from over 11 years of practical experience in the UK and abroad, from large corporations to early stage startups and scale-ups

Drawing from a diverse range of  insights and disciplines to support cultivating and growing your strategy and thought leadership on a range of sustainability and emerging social and environmental topics

Having worked in design and engineering I know just how wonderful technology, engineering, digital can be and how much it has contributed to our society.

However… It will not save us on its own and often may not be the right solution, solving the the right problem at the right depth. It might also not be designed holistically, so focus on one particular problem, but not incorporate environmental and socially responsible design into how it’s made or the impacts throughout it’s life.

Alongside this, there is growing recognition of the negative effects and consequences it potentially has on individuals, society and the environment from our mental health and wellbeing to the impacts of resource extraction.

We need to combine different silos to constantly question technology to be designed better, when appropriate, sustainably and learning more from the wisdom of nature and those still fostering a better connection with it.

Key Tools and thinking I draw from:  

  • Sustainable Product and Business Design: Circular economy, Ecodesign, Life Cycle Analysis and thinking, Permaculture, Biomimicry, Biophilia, Regenerative design
  • Developing strategy, impact and measurement frameworks
  • Sustainable research and insight in innovation, design, lifestyles and emerging topics and trends

Who is it for?

CORPORATIONS | STARTUPS | ACCELERATORS AND INCUBATORS | SOCIAL  ENTERPRISES | DESIGN AGENCIES | PRODUCT FOCUSED INNOVATION

If you’re at the early stages

I help map and understand the problems you’re trying to solve and come up with creative solutions that are often enabled by technology.

If you have a product

I help review your product from a sustainability perspectives, utilising a number of tools to understand where its “hot spots” are throughout the supply chain and product system. Then we can come up with creative strategies and solutions to overcome these.

If you have a business

I’ll work with you to review your business, its value chain for sustainability risks and opportunities holistically, alongside your vision, mission and values. How this translates across your organisation and how you might  build a strategy to address and enhance it and relate to your core purpose.

Or you might just be in need of a little outside inspiration

You, your, team or business might be looking for a bit of outside inspiration, research and insight, perhaps a different perspective.a
