Digital & physical
Nut & Bolt is a design studio with a strong focus on interactive products — products that combine the digital and the physical. From brainstorming and concept development to industrial design, electronics design and prototyping.
Have a look at the projects
I have done for various clients.
Future interactive products require more than a screen and some buttons. These complex, networked, wireless and adaptive things require thinking beyond the obvious. Nut & Bolt integrates form, function and interaction to design easy-to-learn products that allow for a rich user experience and are aware of their surroundings.
A prototype says more than a 1000 words. Nut & Bolt uses prototypes extensively. As a means to communicate concepts, try out design ideas and gain valuable knowledge.
Using prototypes as a design tool helps make issues and opportunities apparent early. Nut & Bolt makes prototypes rapidly and at low cost.
I aim to use open source hardware and software for most of the things I do. This allows me to keep costs down and customise the tools for our specific use. Where possible, Nut & Bolt publishes their work under an open source license.
