About

Hands on Creative Director & Design Thinker

I am Tez Patel, a multi-disciplined, award-winning Creative Director specialising in product, brand and experience design for start-ups and global brands.

I join clients as a consultant for few days or weeks – sometimes more long term as creative-technical facilitator or as a venture partner.

For the last 15 years, I have been leading in-house design teams, and as well as partnering with business.

These business ranges from start-ups and individuals through to global consulting agencies and brands.

Together, I have helped create over a 1000 products, launch new products and services across 200 shows, deliver upon multi-million pound R&D projects, innovation, and Intellectual Property

I help generate ideas and bring them to life through a Design Thinking methodology and purpose driven design.

While most of my work is focused around creating and developing products or brand experience – I also help with new business development, business operations and scaling up enterprises.

As an active Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA), I am also passionate in encouraging the next generation of artists and designer reach design excellence.
