Matt Willox


Summary

I have a 3D product design background and work across both research projects and commercial development as part of consultancy Design Futures. I have worked on a wide variety of new product development projects taking products from concept design through to production in FMCG, medical, consumer and industrial sectors for a diverse range of clients, from SMEs through to major multinationals, such as Adidas, Arla, Rexam and Unilever.

I am a research associate of Lab4Living.

About

I have a 3D product design background and work across both research projects and commercial development as part of consultancy Design Futures. I have worked on a wide variety of new product development projects taking products from concept design through to production in FMCG, medical, consumer and industrial sectors for a diverse range of clients, from SMEs through to major multinationals, such as Adidas, Arla, Rexam and Unilever.

From 2016 I will be working on a three year project related to near patient manufacturing.

I also have a keen interest in graphic design and have created graphical user interfaces and infographics for research projects and commercial clients. These projects have included devising instructional and educational graphics that aim to clearly convey complex information and promote positive behavioural change.

I also create graphical artwork in my spare time, focused on linear simplification and abstraction of calligraphic forms, geometric patterns and repetition.
