A product designer with 30 years’ experience, Miles Hawley has helped some of the world’s biggest brands transform their thinking on design. Miles co-founded top London agency Precipice Design in 2011.
Miles has worked with many international pharma and healthcare companies including Sanofi, Roche, Mundipharma, Galderma, Q-Med and Circassia.
During his years at Precipice, Miles has been an enthusiastic force behind Meaning-Centred Design, leading a world class team who have been pioneering the use of semiotics and cultural analysis within the design process.
Miles graduated with a degree in product design from Kingston University in the late 1980s. After plying his trade at several London agencies, he rose to become Creative Director at pdd, one of the largest product design consultancies in the UK. Miles went on to become Chief Design Officer at Precipice in June 2011 before taking on the CEO role in 2019.
Miles believes innovative design has the power to make the world a better place, citing Precipice’s work on products designed to manage asthma and diabetes as game-changing interventions in the healthcare field.
Med-Tech gives us the opportunity to show and discuss the types of services that Boddingtons Plastics can offer to our customers. We've seen really good footfall and had several new leads for new devices. The show has been a great success for us and in fact we've booked for next year already.
MedTech Innovation Expo was a fascinating event that gave us new insight and inspiration into the challenges we face and, more importantly, into the solutions to solve those challenges. We’ve already marked the event on our calendar for next year and we can’t wait to see what progress has been made… and perhaps, more importantly, what progress we can aid with our Aether Engine technology!
It was great to speak at this excellent event, very well attended by the NHS and Industry, well organised and plenty of opportunities for networking. Looking forward to coming again next year!
We’ve managed to get a lot of interest of people... It’s a lot bigger than what we expected, and we’ve managed to find unexpected partnerships with companies we didn’t even know existed. We were here last year but we weren’t exhibiting, and we were impressed with the quality and quantity of exhibitors, so we thought it was worth it this year.
