Oliver Sunderland

Product Design Engineer

Wakefield, United Kingdom
Yorkshire based product designer and recent graduate achieving a first class honours degree from the Sheffield Institute of Arts, Sheffield Hallam University. I enjoy tackling the unfamiliar. Taking on a project where I have no past experience with a particular product or industry allows me to start my creative process with no preconceptions. I believe this is where truly unique ideas and products originate.
