Meet our Magnificent Makers

Little Inventors wants children to open their eyes to the world of invention and creativity. But beyond the invention drawings, there is a unique opportunity for children and makers, designers and artists to come together and collaborate to bring children’s imagination to life.

By taking children’s ideas seriously and presenting them in a professional manner through collaboration with skilled makers, we will help showcase children’s original ideas, perspectives and voices.

We also want to challenge the skills and experience of adult makers, and encourage them to push beyond their own limits by engaging with the highly imaginative and unhindered minds of young children.

I design stuff for people to make and sell to other people!
Working with Octo Design, I’ve created products for lots of very different companies. 
I'm a product designer with a keen interest in the creative process.  That means I’m often involved in projects from day one, helping to shape those initial seeds of ideas through to something compelling.
I'm also a mechanical engineer who likes to make things.  That helps me work out how things will work and how we can make them a reality!

We have a huge amount of experience working with partners from the NHS to the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies - helping them solve real-world-problems using technology. 

We have built apps, designed toolkits, created AI, designed immersive storytelling. created interesting ways to collect feedback, made VR environments, built physical technologies, made data more accessible, and so much more.

We take a human centred-design approach meaning that we design technology with people in mind.
