Cambridge Consultants are a 350-strong design and development technology consultancy. I joined as a product designer in the Product Definition department.

I was expected to fit straight into the team structure of several major projects, providing creative input, ideation and technical development. Emphasis was put on working within large teams, and liaising effectively across disciplinary boundaries.

As well as design and development roles in several medical device development projects, including asthma inhalers and blood glucose meters, I led the 3G Concept project. The SEE camera from the 3G project was featured in publications including T3 (Dec. 2001), and the Design Council’s ‘Designed for Use’ exhibition that visited Austria, Switzerland and Germany in November and December 2001.
