Luxury Product Development

technical expertise for product creators


I design the things (mechanisms) you either don't have time/capacity or the in-house expertise to tackle. I can solve those nuanced details often wanted, but deemed too complicated or time consuming.

In the last 3-4 years, I have been able to quietly steer my focus to specialise in mechanism design, essentially returning to my first love that I grew up with and cultivated in univerity, but now with the addition of 30+yrs real life experience.

3D scanning, and 3D printing technologies have become essential tools for me and have begun to make up a significant % of my activities. I have backed this up with a small fleet of latest printers and scanning devices. This evolution not only deepened my understanding of the workflows needed but has forced me to actually utilise these workflows. Ultimately it has enhanced my ability to bridge the gap from CAD to the real world, facilitating the creation of precise working samples. I see this as my niche. Not only can I design your mechanism but I deliver a working sample also.

My experience has been augmented by direct involvement in adjacent activities, including retail, manufacturing and social responsibitiy, all of whoms concerns must be accommodated. They are all a consideration within any problem being solved. I like to think this positions me well to support small to medium-sized companies that already have designers but perhaps lack the bandwidth to dedicate them to a specific project feature. Having my own, long experience working on design teams, I am able integrate well and adapt with a proper understanding.

In the thick of the action for 20 years, I can help you in several areas. Robust, methodical and confident

with all facets of the process.


I approach designs from an engineering perspective giving you confidence and reliability in your designs. 


A compliance-first strategy puts every conceivable compliance hurdle at the heart of every design and therefore into the product’s lifecycle.


What exactly does this mean? If you're thinking this, then you will probably welcome learning more.


Suppliers need to satisfy a short list of crucial factors. But how do you know they can? And how can you influence the outcome?
