Collaboration strengthens Herefordshire product design consultancy

Hereford based product design agency, Simple Design Works, and Barker Brettell, the Birmingham head-quartered intellectual property specialists, have launched a collaboration to provide a full service for product design and legal protection.

Simple Design Works is in its fifth year of expansion. This collaboration greatly enhances their unique offering within Herefordshire but also to expand and compete nationwide with additional offices in Birmingham and London. It’s a move crucial for them to attract and develop their creative and engineering team in the county.

Kristo Shivachev, Director of Simple Design Works, explains “We’ve reversed the trend of talent migrating outside the county by working on a variety of exciting industry products. We’ve always attracted local talent but now entice people from outside Herefordshire too”.

The success of Simple Design Works has attracted the attention of NMiTE. Both are working together to mentor and inspire students as well as promote UK engineering.
