Hi Richard, can you tell us a little about what you do?
Rogue Projects is a product design studio.
Our specialty is weaving aspects of engineering and science through concepts that we develop.
You designed The Dispensary for Naked Malt at The Alchemist in Glasgow, where did your inspiration come from?
Inspiration comes through just hard work, drawing for me personally. It sort of pops into your head, when you least expect it.
What's your favourite part of the work you do?
That early phase of drawing, where it's a lot freer and the ideas can flow. Then piecing everything together is very satisfying.
What would you say to someone looking to get into a similar field of work?
Consider the power of drawing to solve problems, and to consider problems in 3D space.
Drawing is a means of communicating ideas and I think is a very powerful tool.
What's the best moment of your career so far?
I applied to work with a very good Spanish architect. His name was Calatrava, and we worked on the transportation hub at Ground Zero in New York. That was a very formative experience.
We have to ask! Do you have a favourite Naked Malt cocktail?
The whisky on its own!
From The Dispensary machine though I do love the sour.
The Dispensary recently won for both Technology and Best in Show in the Product category at the Hospitality Design Awards!
