An award-winning Product Design Engineer, Jude Pullen is a multi-faceted technologist who has a passion to investigate each subject matter that crosses his path, particularly bridging seemingly disparate disciplines.
He is fascinated by fresh design challenges, be they human, mechanical or virtual.
He specialises in creating physical prototypes, and uses these models to further explore design ideas, from concepts for Dyson, a medical device for the NHS, a fire-fighting robot to a mini space-pod. Recently he has featured on BBC Two’s “The Big Life Fix with Simon Reeve”.
Formerly Head of Research, Development and Technology at London start-up Sugru, Jude has worked with a range of blue-chip companies, and charitable organisations, such as Children in Need. He now works as a Sr. Technology Scout & Direction Design Manager at LEGO.
