60 second interview: Mark Sanders - MAS Design Products, Windsor UK

Published 12 April 2011

Article tagged with: mark sanders, 60 second interview, mas design

Mark Sanders is managing director of MAS Design Products Ltd. He trained as a Mechanical Engineer at Imperial College and Rolls-Royce. After working in the engineering industry for several years, he also trained as a Designer at the Royal College of Art in London. His award winning products sell in tens of millions, globally. He is a visiting lecturer at various schools and colleges in UK & abroad, including the RCA and Imperial College in London.

Why did you become a designer?
Imagining and making new things .... for a living ? The ‘college answer’ is to make people’s lives and the world at large ‘better’, that new products should all be universally user focused, and their benefits really needed. But I believe that unless you have some personal passion for a new product, it is rare to do something extraordinary.

Which designer or company do you most admire and why?
Steve Jobs – yes as a designer. His imagination and vision across a broad range of design aspects makes him and Apple so special. Engineering, branding, interface, product design, quality, image, etc ... it’s all design.

Prime Cuts: Danish bring home the bacon*

Denmark is having a purple patch at the minute: if it’s not fashion, literature or films, we’re being reminded that the Danes do product design better than most.

Having already picked up a Red Dot Award for the Linksys E4200 router, Cisco is pleased to unveil its Danish design office (its other is in California) and the “ground-breaking production techniques” responsible.

With the internet providing the hub of entertainment in the home, isn’t it about time we stopped hiding our routers behind the TV/sofa/picture of the mother in-law and started appreciating these little boxes of wonder?

Back in January we got a bit excited when Dyson - designers of household utilities, gadgets, and other wonders - got in touch with our DEVELOP3D Jobs site to help us find them a range of potential employees.

All positions were filled, but that hasn’t stopped Dyson returning to us to find even more highly-skilled employees to take them to further inventive heights.

The company that is probably best known for its leading range of vacuum cleaners actually does a lot more: they’ve developed new hand-dryer technology, a desk fan without buffeting blades and a digital motor that spins 104,000 times a minute. But this is only the start. As part of future growth plans they are now expanding their Malmesbury operation and there’s a chance for you to be a part of it.
There are 8 positions available, to view them all click here, or see below for our selections:

Mechanical engineer - Motors

Industrial and product design engineer

Graduate industrial and product design engineer

None of these roles take your fancy? Then why not check out the other roles that are currently being advertised on our brand new job listing site – DEVELOP3D Jobs
