We are very pleased to announce that Aliki Siganou, a Brunel University graduate in Product Design BSc, has recently joined the Haughton Design team. A Greek national who has previously worked in Hong Kong, Aliki is an adventurous character and adds an international dimension to the company. Aliki speaks a number of different languages and is driven by challenges and problem-solving.
Aliki has previous experience in healthcare design; through a collaboration with a team inside Evelina London Children’s Hospital (part of Guy’s and ST Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust), she has designed, prototyped and tested a novel baby soothing device. Market research has been very promising and feedback from clinicians and parents has been excellent. Aliki’s product will be launched in the not-so-distant future. During her time in Hong Kong, Aliki worked in the fast-paced housewares industry and was involved in the design of plastic, injection moulded parts and products.
“Haughton Design is the ideal place to extend my knowledge of applying mechanical engineering to product design, and be able to design a product from start to finish, i.e. from immersion to industrialisation. I am truly lucky to have landed here and look forward to building on my past experience and the knowledge that University has provided me with. I am expecting to get involved with designing products and devices that solve real life challenges, hence to be able to make a difference to a better functioning world.” – Aliki
Aliki has a good perception of geometry as well as strong sketching and graphic design skills. In addition, she is fascinated by colour and considerately applies it in her design work. In her spare time, she enjoys Salsa dancing, drawing and exercising. She also has a good sense of humor and has settled in well with her colleagues.
Managing Director David Mills adds: “I am delighted that Aliki has joined our team, we have been looking for someone who would extend the breadth of our services for some time. She is very capable and has a lot of potential, bringing a softer, feminine element to our designs and the products we create. I look forward to seeing these attributes combined with our mechanical product design and development skill set. I genuinely think our designs will be stronger and more appealing through it.”
