TEZ PATEL

I am a hands on, entrepreneurial and versatile senior-level creative, specialising in industrial design, product development, emerging technology such as 3D printing. My experience includes luxury products (watches), manufacturing, structural packaging, branding, media production and business operations including start-up ventures.

 

With over a decade of experience in design consultancies, in-house design studios and pioneering design teams.

I have successfully designed and developed over 100 products and successfully delivered multiple creative strategic projects.

I help generate ideas and bring them to life focusing on aesthetics, function, empathy and use design and technical expertise to add value to a product or service life cycle.

 

I have been fortunate to work with some of the biggest brands in UK high street fashion including major international clients Superdry, French Connection, Kate Spade and Cath Kidston.

 

As a recent Fellow of the RSA, I also help within the design education sector, encouraging the next generation of designers, makers and engineers reach design excellence.

HOW I CAN HELP?

I help businesses, start up teams and individuals with creative ideas, product design, technology and manufacture projects. These projects range from existing products which may need refining to kick starting a brand new venture from a napkin sketch.

 

My work is varied and I join clients as a freelance/consultant for few days or weeks – sometimes more long term as creative-technical facilitator or as a venture partner.

 

While most of my work is focused around creating and developing products – I also help with new business development, business operations, idea generation and service design. More recently I have been involved with the education sector helping young people engage with design and technology, STEM and reach design excellence.

 

A snap shot of my recent roles include:

> Industrial designer to a luxury home ware company and brand.

> Chief Creative Officer to an education group specialising in design, technology, coding and 3D printing. 

> Design consultant to a British-Swiss made watch brand with heritage dating back to 1862.

> Brand consultant to a herbal pharmaceutical company and brand.

> Head of industrial design for a fashion watch company.

> Design consultant to a print and media publishing group.
