Please would Matthew Whittaker get in touch with me (DW 16 August). A meeting may lift him from the doldrums. Many designers have invented things which they have embodied in a marketable form and which have sold – for example, James Dyson and vacuum cleaners, Warwick Design and sub-bugs.
I counsel so many businesses on product development strategy that it would be a pleasure and a challenge to try and point Matthew in the right direction. That is what I am here for.
