He’s designed everything from kettles to helicopters, bras and spaceships. This week on the Phorecast Podcast we are honored to interview one of the worlds most innovative and well-known product designers, Mr Richard Seymour. What really sets Mr Seymour , the director and co-founder of Seymourpowell, apart is his unique perspective on innovation and forecasting the future.

Based in London, Seymourpowell formed in 1984 and started in grand style by creating the worlds first cordless kettle for Tefal in 1985. Their client list includes Ford, Nokia, Guinnes, Casio and their latest project, Virgin Galactics privateer spacecraft.

Making things better for people is Mr. Seymours credo. He is always pushing the boundaries of expectation. We are very happy to have Mr. Seymour with us on the episode where we discuss innovation, the power of creativity and some of his most exciting projects.
