William Hawken is a British Product Designer whose deep-rooted passion is technology, specifically in how it can enable unique experiences and aid us in fulfilling our passions and hobbies.
His journey into Product Design is an unconventional one. He studied Computer Science at an undergraduate level, later becoming a Software Engineer at IBM. He later progressed to a role that was split between Software Development and UI/UX Design, where he would create prototypes for a variety of clients, showcasing the latest innovative and industry-leading technologies.
His transition into Product Design was born out of a desire to improve upon his many frustrations with current consumer technology. He enjoys the conveniences that modern-day technologies afford, but is disappointed in how wasteful the industry is.
