I am a designer and engineer based in Hackney, East London. I am interested in older and disabled people, digital technology and public space ad work on projects that combine at least two of these areas.
Whilst research is core to my practice I prioritise projects that are close to production/implementation over those that are more conceptual or speculative. I try and work with clients that share this point of view including well established UK manufacturing companies such as Stannah and Marshalls as well as charities like Scope and government bodies like the Royal Borough of Greenwich and TfL. I pull together a network of software engineers, graphic designers, researchers and film makers to deliver design-focused research and products that straddle the digital/physical divide and solve actual problems.
I am also a regular speaker at conferences on the Internet of Things and accessibility.
I am based at Hackney Depot, Sheep Lane, London, E8 4QS. I’m @rossatkin on Twitter and can be reached at ross [at] rossatkin.com
