An interview with... Simon Pougher

Senior Designer, Simon Pougher, brings a calm creative and passionate presence to the team, excelling in problem solving and mechanical design.

1. What do you do at Design Reality?

I started at Design Reality back in October 2017, initially as a Project Lead. But for the past 3 and a half years I’ve been working as a Senior Designer – overseeing multiple client projects. My particular focus in the team is problem solving and mechanical design.

2. What did you do you before working at Design Reality?

After completing my Product Design and Manufacture degree at The University of Nottingham, I got a job as a Design Engineer working for Vax vacuum cleaners. It was a great learning experience – but the job sucked [only joking!].

3. Most interesting project you’ve worked on so far?

The most interesting project I’ve worked on so far has probably been the multi-award winning FitCheck® system.
Initially designed as measuring/recording device for pre-use wearer-seal checks, the system has grown and developed to be so much more, and has really broadened my knowledge in electronics and certifications.

4. Describe yourself in 3 words.

Problem-solver.
Calm.
Adventurous.

5. What do you enjoy outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy days out with my daughter and curling for the Welsh men’s curling team!
