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.
My original 'SCRIBBLER' 5.6mm clutch pencil has influenced many other companies to develop their own designs.
Working with engineers and many skilled craftsmen I use my product design and silversmithing experience
to create the unique products you will find online and in my gallery in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
I established david hayward design in 1986 and moved to my present
studio and workshop in 2000.
