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.


My R&D consultancy experience includes designing and developing products and managing NPD projects across consumer, medical, FMCG and industrial sectors for diverse clients - from SMEs to major multinationals, including brands such as Gripple, Unilever, Panasonic, Spear and Jackson and JCB.

I also teach engineering design and furniture design students and have a mentoring role with product design placement students.
