Favourite Projects

I thought I’d add a quick-link (on the right) to some of my favourite projects. One of the most exciting was to design a gift to present to The Queen for the opening of the Science Museum’s Information Age Gallery. I’m also proud of the work that I did developing the Adspecs, to help children to learn to read in the developing world. Two of the designs I'm most pleased with are the Open Up Lamp and Food For Thought Lunchbox. Please click the links to explore the projects, or on "work" to get a wider selection of projects. I hope you like them. - Mark
