    Design has the power to enhance our lives, and should always achieve this. No gimmicks, just great products and spaces to facilitate a better experience, giving us more time or focus to enjoy the important things in life!

    Following a Masters degree in Transport Design, John worked in an unusually wide range of disciplines in aviation, including positions as an airline’s Head of Product, for a manufacturing group designing aircraft seats and galleys, and for a design consultancy.

    John shares responsibility with Tim Manson for JPA London’s Transport and Product offering, and brings experience in both aviation and automotive to his passion for transport design.

    John has created designs for Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Gulf Air, Dovetail, Kingfisher and Airbus. Together with his passion for innovation and creativity, his diverse expertise enables him to offer an industry-wide perspective even on the most complex projects. John is a regular contributor to a number of airline industry publications.
