Gordon

Development Director

In his role at i4, Gordon`s specialist skills in project planning and management are important when working closely with quality production manufacturers. His design abilities have clocked up 26 years’ experience ranging from the initial product concepts through to the final supply and delivery. He has the art of communication down to a tee, his attention to detail contributes hugely to the success of the company.

What is your approach to design?

I believe a product can be well designed but it also has to be made well in order to be successful. I also believe that being involved from early on at requirements gathering & early sketch concepts all through the product development process to volume manufacture only benefits the end results & leads to successful, innovative solutions.

What are your three favourite designed products?
Perception Scooter Kayak – I have owned & used for one for over 10 years, its completely indestructible & provides amazing performance, comfort while putting you in control in most challenging of sea conditions – it’s a classic.
iPad Pro with Apple Pencil – I have always owned & used Apple products & love the simplicity & the quality of the Pencil stylus which offers amazing sketching ability. When you combine with an ipad pro then it’s a dream machine for Designers – I have one & love it.
Weber portable barbecue grill – Totally robust, practical & a joy to use – cooking dinner on the beach while watching the sunset with a clever bit of design can only be good.

What interests you?
Sea kayaking a bit of stand up paddle boarding with occasional tennis & mountain biking always supported by fine cooking – with wine. I also paint landscapes on the odd occasion & love the process with the odd success.

What product could you not live without?
Portable artists set complete with integrated easel & a wide variety of acrylics & oils.
Or
Perception Scooter Kayak & Swift carbon paddle for adventures in the sea at the weekends.
