Rise & Design No.70 - Design for Sport
Fri 8 July 2016, 08:30 – 11:30 BST
Sporting equipment isn't just designed to look good, but to ensure athletes and amateurs alike can train at their very best. July's Rise and Design will take you through the process of designing for sport, and as well as hearing from local experts, you'll also have the opportunity to ask them questions
Matt Hulbert, Ojee Golf
Ojee Golf has unveiled a new digital golf training aid that, for the first time in golf’s history, delivers real-time, visual feedback on golf stance, setup and angles. The Talon – the brainchild of Teesside-based product designer Matt Hulbert and his father Paul – is a unique addition to the golf technology market, which enables golfers to improve muscle memory, consistency and performance.
Ryan McKnight, Quantify R&D
Ryan works with many sports businesses, including several Premiership football clubs, helping them to get the most out of their R&D activities. Some recent projects included designing pitch side advertising that flexes to reduce injuries, cricket training in the dark to improve reaction times, and advances in race car engineering. Ryan will talk about all of these and more.
Tori Tomlin, Pure Fishing
Pure Fishing is a global family of quality fishing tackle brands, offering a broad range of products that meet or exceed the needs of today's anglers. Day by day, innovation by innovation, and catch by catch, each brand has earned a distinct and unique reputation with anglers worldwide. With a state of the art research facility in Spirit Lake, Iowa that is second to none, it comes as no surprise that Pure Fishing products are at the forefront of innovation and technology.
Rise and Design lasts for approximately three hours, and includes networking before and after speakers. There is a chance to pitch at the end of the speakers' presentations, and you can book a stand for the whole event. We encourage all delegates to stay after presentations for neworking - it is one of the most valuable parts of Rise and Design. For more information, please visit our website
