Paul leads Design and Innovation at Team Consulting, working closely with clients and colleagues to improve the user experience of medical devices, through carefully crafted industrial design, digital UI/UX, packaging and information design solutions.
With over 20 years’ experience helping companies bring innovative, user-centred products into reality, Paul focuses on helping clients at the front-end of development to set the right direction and ensure user, commercial and technical needs are thoroughly understood.
Paul talks about the need for flexibility in a recent client project
“We really care about our clients and what they are trying to achieve. Product development is often unpredictable, throwing-up unforeseen challenges along the way. We believe that the adoption of design thinking not only results in great products but helps to overcome many of the challenges that the projects and teams face during the development process.”
“We’ve set the bar very high for what we want to help our clients achieve and have built a world class team of individuals to help make it a reality. A successful device is one that ticks all the boxes: usability, technical robustness, cost, and market appeal. This requires a collaboration between people with different skills and different mind-sets. We have the ‘full set’ here at Team and collaborate to use them to their best advantage.”
During his time at Team, Paul has led the development of many innovative products including inhalers, injectors, surgical instruments, diagnostic platforms and consumer medical products. Before joining Team in 2002, Paul earned his stripes working as an in-house designer for several manufacturing companies, gaining a deep knowledge of design for manufacture and an ability to ‘see it from the other side’. He has a degree in Product Design from Central St. Martin’s College in London.
