Rowan Dixon Sahara

I love physical products; from clicky buttons, to the cold metal on premium electronic devices, I have always been fascinated by the way designers uses different shapes, textures and mechanisms to augment a user’s experience. Since graduating in 2020 from Imperial in Design Engineering I have followed that passion to work at Tewke, helping design and develop the hardware products that make up their portfolio.

During my short career by far my favourite part is getting to work with so many people in disciplines outside of product design. You not only get to be creative and play with cool new technologies but to make a successful product you have to work very closely with other members of the wider team, such as software engineers, electrical and electronic engineers, graphic designers and the wider business team. For me the greatest satisfaction comes when seeing the fruits of everyone’s different backgrounds and expertise coming together to create a beautiful neat package, greater than the sum of its parts.

Whilst not working I love to challenge myself, from running ultra-marathons to crossing the Sahara desert. I find the process of not being able to do something, and then working to be able to do it incredibly rewarding and this is what gets me up in the morning.
