More about Andrew
Andrew graduated from Coventry University, achieving a 1st in Automotive Design (MDes) after studying Transport and Product Design. Following University, Andrew helped launch one of the world’s first electric sports cars for an automotive manufacturer where he solidified his passion for ergonomics and styling.
A subsequent sales role followed by product design consultancy experience started an interest in the financial and commercial viability of product development which he has expanded on after launching Duku in 2013.
Andrew has managed over 400+ design projects, working with the team to ensure projects remain on brief and within budget. Recently he has helped achieve successful funding for both client work and Duku’s own projects through Innovate UK, university collaborations and regional grants to support the development work. His interest and experience in ergonomics have also helped shape the trials and focus groups used to ensure the Duku projects keep the user and accessibility at the forefront.
Andrew will bore you to tears about cars if you dare ask, so we’d advise you don’t, he also says he spends a lot of time in the gym, but there is little evidence to prove that.
