Managing Director

Joint founder and managing director of i4 Product Design, Brian has over 25 years of experience in product development, the majority of which have been in a consultancy environment.
He has witnessed a huge throughput of projects during this time, with i4 alone supporting over 100 products to market since its inception, over 12 years ago. These products have been introduced into the hi-tech, consumer, medical, renewable and industrial markets.

He has overall responsibly for the efficient day to day running of the business, ensuring strict financial control and accountability and that the company is being steered along a path of steady, sustainable growth.

What is your approach to design?
I have a ‘can do’ attitude and strongly believes that anything should be possible.
My specialist technical knowledge lies in designing plastic injection moulded components for high volume manufacture with a high emphasis on designing products for cost effective manufacture and intuitive assembly.

What are your three favourite designed products?
Forth Rail Bridge – iconic, ahead of its time, elegant.
Harrier Jump Jet – innovative, insect like, intimidating.
The Paper Clip – beautifully simple.

What interests you?
Sport and travelling in general. If I could I would spend all of my time travelling around the world attending all of the major sporting events; what a life that would be!

What product could you not live without?
Not being able to live without my car sounds a bit dramatic but it certainly would be inconvenient!
