I originally trained as a silversmith at Loughborough College of Art and Design
followed by an MA in industrial design at Birmingham Polytechnic. My first design
post was in Germany with WMF and this influenced me enormously.
After gaining commercial design and lecturing experience in England, Germany,
India and Hong Kong I spent seven years at the Design Council in London working
with manufacturing industry.
I established david hayward design in 1986 and moved to my present
studio and workshop in 2000.
I export my range of writing instruments to many parts of the world including
the USA, Russia, Canada, Japan, Germany and Italy.
