Anthony Jones

Principal Industrial Designer at Design Futures


I am a Principal Designer at Design Futures, a multi-disciplinary design group based at the University. A member of the Chartered Society of Designers for 12 years, I have extensive experience in product design for industry, taking many products through from concept design to production, from one-off and low volume products to mass produced goods.
