About me

 
David Robinson Photo Two.jpg

For over 15 years I have helped forward-thinking clients find the best path to success through strategic design.

I’m an Designer 100% focused on medical product design with extensive human factors engineering, usability and user experience design knowledge.

I have a passion for designing products and experiences that improve patient’s lives. To do this I employ user-centered design, advocating the user throughout development to deliver simple, elegant and desirable solutions.

I design physical products, digital UX, packaging and printed instructions to create harmonious user experiences.

Over the years, I have worked on a myriad of projects for start-ups and pharma companies such as Amgen, GlaxoSmithKline, Vectura, Orion Pharma, Vectura, ALK, SteadyMed, Novartis, Astra Zeneca, Arjohuntleigh, Merck, Roche, Teva, Haselmeier, OrganOx, Actegy, Elpen and Abbott Laboratories to name a few.
