  • Tim Manson
    Design Director, Transport, London
    There's nothing I like more than rationalising a complex design challenge, collaborating with multi-disciplinary teams, assessing the direction and building a team to deliver amazing work.

    With a background in product design and innovation, Tim shares responsibility with John Tighe for Transport and Product design.

    Tim has extensive experience with the UK’s leading product design and innovation consultancies. He began applying his diverse design experience to the award-winning Singapore Airlines A380 business class seat and continued to build JPA’s relationship with Singapore Airlines on the B777-300 First Class suite programme. Tim was also a lead designer for the original Cirrus seat. As well as aviation Tim has worked on a number of rail programs with JPA. Together with his responsibility for the creative quality and output of the studio, Tim’s key focuses are leadership, conceptual design, innovation and research to design translation.  He has a number of industry awards and is a regular speaker at events such as Aircraft Interiors Expo.
