Wrist-borne device

Product design

With all the chatter lately about Apple’s possible iWatch and other wearables, I decided to offer my perspective on a direction I’d like to see wrist-borne devices go.

Born on the magical island of Bali in Indonesia, Bamzu is here to encourage a re-think of product development, and in turn, customer involvement in the 21st century and if we can have a little fun while we’re at it, all the better!

Designed to overcome a constant frustration I had in gyms over the years with threaded free-weights where the nuts work their way loose when doing reps, especially on exercises like bicep curls, often so much that the user is required to stop the exercise, put the weight on the floor, re-tighten and restart the routine.
I have come up with a ratcheted version of the bar. It adds little extra cost to manufacture and has a quick release lock on the threaded nut to lock the nut in place during exercise and allows for easy unlocking so they can be quickly spun off the bar when a weight change is required.


If, like me, you’re in to French film noire and dropping in on a clean, crisp right-hander from time to time, this is the board for you.

I set myself a challenge a couple of years back and only recently re-discovered it in my piles of files. The Fitflop (orthopedic flip flop) has been a huge hit but damn they look ugly. Without adjusting the core form and functionality, could alternate color and material choice make them more palatable to the more discerning audience. Here were my first few quick efforts.



For thirty five years, Clive Limpkin, one of the unsung heroes of Fleet Street, worked as a photographer with the Daily Express, The Sketch, The Sun and The Daily Mail, while feature writing for The Sunday Times and The Observer. He then moved into full time travel writing and photography and has written some extraordinary books.

I have been working with him for the last few months, providing creative direction and producing his latest book for Apple’s iPads.
(Update: Now also available on Amazon for the Kindle)
It’s his autobiography, ‘Lost in the Reptile House’.

It’s a fascinating, funny, brilliant insight into the golden age of Fleet Street photojournalism.
You can find the download link on his recently refreshed website, which I also designed. Clive’s blog is also a must for bookmarking.
