ABOUT

   

London based industrial designer Jim Rokos had explored many creative areas, before discovering his passion for Industrial Design. Originally trained as a model-maker in the film and television industry (The Muppet Treasure Island, Band of Brothers, Tomb Raider, Victoria and Albert), then a photographer’s assistant, then a film extra, Jim went on to design an innovative cat-food bowl – over 50,000 have been sold throughout Europe.

Jim then went on to teach at a special needs school in London, before completing a Master’s degree (2006) in Industrial Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, part of London’s University of the Arts. He is a member of the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce). He observes people’s behavior and his products can encourage a user to reflect. Fantasy and poetic elements can be seen in his works.

Jim is passionate to explore materials to create original and visually beautiful, refined concepts. He enjoys every stage of the design process. Research, creative exploration, problem solving, refinement and execution. New creative techniques are sought to generate original ideas. Understanding and engaging with user psychology is key and users are observed within their local context. Jim is interested to apply these techniques, for the improvement of people’s lives.

The Blindspot range was sold to the Central Saint Martins Museum and study collection in 2007.
