Philip Matthews's picture


I'm a product designer with a strong background in mechanical engineering. This gives me a unique set of skills and an awesome design process:

Although I am interested in all aspects of design, I'm focused on designing user-centered products in response to real problems and design opportunities.

I approach projects creatively and with the user at the heart of my process, which I support with technical expertise. This ensures that my product solutions are not only innovative but also technically and commercially feasible.

What's really key to my process is building and testing lots of prototypes to rapidly develop my designs. This involves lots of failing and is the most important part of my process and the reason my designs are successful.
