Kristian

Mechanical Design Engineer

With his aeronautical engineering background, Kristian takes great pleasure in computational modelling of systems and approaching his work using a mechatronic design philosophy, utilising the skills of other disciplines effectively. He has had experience in the Wave and Tidal industry developing new products and more recently in the Aquaculture industry.

What is your approach to design?
I like to take a sustainable approach to design, not only in terms of materials or power consumption, but to model problems from a numerical and analytical perspective to design out any inefficiencies providing time and resources allow.

What are your three favourite designed products?
The Washburn N4 Nuno Bettencourt model of guitar. I have two, one I bought and one I built myself.
The guitar multi effects processor. Although I prefer raw analogue sound, these things give you so much control and variety with the power of digital signal processing.
The iPhone. It is not just a phone anymore, it is a tiny enclosure of sensors and media. (It’s also a guitar multi-effects processor).

What interests you?
Playing guitar in my band “Fools on the Frontline” and building guitars in my garage.
What product could you not live without?
My Washburn N4 guitar. Not just for the aesthetics but for the tone it provides for me when playing in my band. It’s a workhorse.
