Paul Harwood

Founder and Principal Designer

Paul has been an entrepreneur for over 20 years designing products for blue chip companies and his own internet based companies.

He studied Multimedia Design when the internet was in it's infancy and correctly predicted and took advantage of many emerging technology trends.

He is a technical practitioner and a creative. This balance makes his designs realistic, profitable and inspiring.

"Paul is one of the greatest masters of business strategic thinking I have ever come across. As I have borne witness to myself on many occasions over our years working together, he is in fact a visionary - and has the uncanny, unfathomable(!) knack of predicting outcomes sometimes long before a new market or product has gathered any momentum."
