Following an early career that covered engineering design, theatre, ceramics, and plastics manufacturing Tony trained as an industrial designer. After three years designing furniture and lighting products in New York he moved into design management, initially working for the Design Council in London. In 1988 he was appointed head of design at British Rail, running a team responsible for all aspects of the national network’s corporate identity, graphics, product and rolling stock design.
Tony went on to become the director of the Transport Design Consortium, a multidisciplinary group of consultants working on large-scale international design projects. After working as an independent consultant on transport related design projects in Europe and East Asia, Tony became managing director of UK brand and communications agency Roundel servicing a diverse mix of clients across the fields of science, industry, retail, transport and communications.
