Freelance Product Designer for UK and international retail

Product Packaging Design - Card

These products were created with retail in mind. The briefs for the design covered a range of the methods, factors and restrictions. Some these designs were a unique twist on an existing product that was already on the market, others were created from scratch.

Memory Capture : The product above and below is the packaging and the product, all created from cardboard. The product needed to be low cost, rapid, for tech industries and 'gifting'.

Memory Capture Look And Feel. Essentially, the product is a stand that allows you to take steady photos on your smartphone, a bit of function and a lot of fun to assemble, it was created as an eye-catching stocking-filler piece. The product was geared toward Mum's, Dads and Grandparents.

The product captures a retro textured leather feel with a brushed steel effect, paying homage to your classic SLR camera and fun family holidays.

VR Frontier. This product was a detailed take on the Google Cardboard, an inexpensive and fun VR solution that turns your smartphone into a VR headset. The look and feel is based around space - VR being a way of exploring other worlds. We wanted to create a product that would be appealing to the Science Museum.

After creating some rough initial concepts in Photoshop (an illustrated mock up) the artwork was then created in Adobe Illustrator. Once the design was finished and positioned inside the factory diecut, the artwork was sent to print in China. After a short period, a photo mock up of the design would sent over via email where upon it would be checked and approved.

Boogie Pong (Design look and feel copyright Satzuma) was created inline with a popular game in the gifting market which allowed players to thrust and girate ping pong balls from a box tied to their waists.

(When testing game in the office it looked like game you would see on the likes of a friday night - it was a huge laugh.)

This take on the game required me to create a design, very quickly. This included the box, the characters and packaging. The design needed to look distinct from other designs of this game. Using Adobe Illustrator this design was created from mock up to completion.

Flash Drive Design | the dog and the rat were created as part of an exclusive Flash Drive range. I came up with the character concepts with my pencil and rendered in Photoshop. These 2D drawings were created in 3D and then manufactured.

Creative Product Design

Designing Products I would never have called myself a product designer, industrial designer or 3D designer - until I look back at my portfolio. Any products I have designed or been involved with has been typically 2D and not required a mold with the exception of the Flash Memory and novelty PC Mice. I have created cards, flash drives, card products, games and other items that have been sold in and around UK and over seas.

If you are looking for help on your next project or product, I would be more than happy to work on a freelance or contract basis. Drop a no obligation email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
