Alexander Hulme is a London based designer with 10 years experience working with brands like Muji, HP, Samsung & Panasonic.

A graduate of the Royal College of Art, he has worked at Nokia, Samsung, Tangerine & Tom Dixon.   He lectures at degree level and gives talks and workshops worldwide, including recently to the Apple industrial design team in California.

Topic of lecture: 

“My work sits at the junction between the practical and the creative.  Almost every project is a mix of creative exploration and technological application. 

Balancing these contrasting values can be a challenge, but ultimately it drives the creative process in new and interesting directions.

During the lecture I hope to communicate both the benefits and challenges of this dual approach to product development and talk through some of the processes used. “
 
The lecture will take place in the Warren Lecture Theatre at TP at 3.30-4.30pm with Q&A afterwards.  To ensure a prompt start please be in your seats by 3.20pm.
