You need the best team
on your side.
So we forged one for you.
General Director of Stuff
Andrew is the founder and director of Realise: the man, with the original vision, driving the company forward for over a decade.
Andrew comes from a sailing background, and originally trained as a Naval Architect, but was ultimately drawn to changing the world through product design. He‘ll happily admit he’s more recently defected to skiing!

Sophie has unique experience and knowledge in electronic product development, hands on prototyping and commercial business development.
With a breadth of process insights, material knowledge and technical understanding, Sophie is expertly placed to work with customers and the local business economy to ensure successful product launches.
David is a problem-solving genius, unfazed by any design-engineering conundrum, who’s passionate about leading effective creative teams.
His keen interest in product development and experience developing complex products at a large vacuum cleaner manufacturer, afford him an acute skill in turning a client concept into a real product that delivers in the market.
Senior Product Design Engineer

Dan has recently joined Realise, with extensive experience developing products under pressure, including having developed and launched his own tech-product as a start-up in London.
He’s particularly interested in the future of technology in design and for fun has taught himself to fly drones and programming basic electronic controllers.

Product Designer, Sustainability Lead
A 1st class product design graduate from Brunel University London, Sam originally studied engineering, but soon realised he was suited to a broader creative position, where he can explore his talent in branding and visualisation as well as the technical.
Sam is deeply committed to furthering sustainable design and has been a key catalyst in developing our Positive Products framework with Andrew.
Charles is our resident graphic design & communications expert. Having graduated from Loughborough University with a first-class degree in graphic design & Illustration, Charles plans and delivers all of Realise’s marketing activities, as well as some of our client’s materials for their product launches – using his expert eye to ensure graphics and messaging communicate to maximum effect.
Jeff has been Realise’s financial guide since incorporation and helps to make sure we stay on the financial map as we grow.
His other passion is orienteering where he coaches both the England and Great Britain junior teams in international competitions. Cool. So now you know who to call if you get lost in the Peak District.
The heartbeat of our creative hub, ensuring that our studio runs like a well-oiled machine. With a passion for organization and a flair for artistic excellence, Ali brings a unique blend of skills and experience to our team.
Head Of Security
Roxy is Head of Security and hoovering at Realise. She is an adorable Kelpie Collie and when she isn’t gazing out of the window, growling at dodgy people, or dreaming about sheep, she’s busy trying to get us to play with the squeaky bone or feed her biscuits.
Don't just take our word for it...
David Burton | Fujifilm | Business Director
“This was the first time we worked with Realise and we’re delighted we
selected them as our design partner. The depth of what they brought,
particularly in ensuring it was manufactured as we needed, far outstripped
our expectations of what ‘the designers do’. The end to end process they
took us through has become known as ‘the Realise Factor’ round here!”
Kevin Jenner | Fujifilm | Marketing Manager
“It’s been huge value working with a company that’s third party to this
industry, to ask the unconventional questions. It has been a very
collaborative experience working with Realise, a nice group of people who
know what they are doing and are very professional in how they present
stuff. It’s been a great experience!”
