Nathan Elliott brings a creative work ethic as a graphic and product designer to interaction design, He is experienced in rapid prototyping, 3D CAD software and rendering. The aim in his work is to help people understand how new emerging technology from all different sectors are relevant in helping progress interaction design, the focus of his work is to show how coding can be used to help further progress peoples learning and take great ideas to the next level. Working in the design sector his work ranges from doing graphic design projects for small independent companies to his latest project was picked up by the university of Ravensbourne where he helped redesign the whole induction progress to make it more interactive. His work has also been short listed and sold at the Penrose festival and o2 handmade Christmas.
Worked as part of a team who designed and pitched a new induction experience for Ravensbourne College of Design and communication. Then headed a team of co-collaborators to bring the idea from concept to reality, using Arduino, Raspberry Pi and coding. The induction was successfully run over 6 days in September 2014. It started off with just foundation and due to the success was pick up for higher education.
I started off as a product design students, I decided that the product Interaction course was better tailored for me and switch course during second year, I have learnt a variety of skills including working with code, user centered design, wire framing and quick prototyping while still have the background in product design to work with materials and equipment.
