We invited Marcus to MEX for his deep knowledge of mobile accessories. Marcus has been helping shape the consumer product and mobile landscape since the mid-1990s. Initially with telecoms technology start-ups such as Pogo where, as Head of Design, he was responsible for design and new product development of its innovative GSM web-enabled mobile communications devices. Since 2003, as director of Native design, he has been creating iconic products and experiences for some of the world’s most successful companies and brands. His session at MEX will focus on Pathway #10, looking at how smart accessories can transform the mobile user experience. His work in the audio accessories for mobile, including designs such as the award winning Zeppelin iPod dock for Bowers & Wilkins, gives him a unique perspective. Bringing his extensive commercial experience of taking complex technology-led products to market, Marcus is both a superbly gifted creative and a natural team leader. He has driven hugely influential innovation, product development and design programs for TomTom, B&W and Orange, winning numerous industry awards for his designs, including iF, D&AD and Gold IDSA.
