Jonny Patty / Designer & Founder, North Design Works Ltd.

A little background

After a 10 year career in Safety & Survival Design / Test / Manufacture in a Global ISO9001 environment, Jonny Patty (BEng, Mechanical Engineering QUB) incorporated the business in 2010 to develop an entrepreneurial project. The entrepreneurial project didn't work out, but by late 2010, Jonny was providing consultancy to all manner of clients including General Industry, Academic Research and Technology sectors to name but a few. The wide range of clients re-invigorated a passion for learning & professional development - Jonny decided to transition the business into a Design Consultancy during 2010, helping clients achieve their goal. North Design Works was born, the name donated from the street in South Belfast where Jonny lived at the time, but importantly emphasising a neutral stance to the Irish political situation and reflecting Jonny's liberal, inclusive views. North Design Works is an unashamedly small business with a high output... this is by design to keep standards high - all work is handled by Jonny, so clients can rest assured that their project has a designer with 20+years industrial experience.


Highlights so far include contributions to Heart Surgery Medical Devices, Tech-sector Products showcased at CES, contributions to HBO's Game of Thrones (Sons of the Harpy Mask), and of course designing & building the Studio.
