About

Hello, my name is Paul and this is my intermittent blog, apologies if you expect something more regular. I do that on Twitter as @paulpod or on Flickr as paulpod.

I’m a designer, my portfolio is here http://SP1.ME and this is my Linkedin profile. I’ve done a few things:

Worked for brilliant design agencies including Razorfish v1, Poke and BERG.

Started a small digital design boutique called Neuromantics with clients like Nokia, BBC and Vodafone.

Bootstrapped a “social media for TV” startup called TIOTI which was later angel and VC funded and acquired by Vizimo.

Been a co-founder of a much larger startup called Artfinder which for a while was all about making something with interesting people and content. Those experiences informed the mildly popular Lessons learnt from doing startups post.

Done future digital strategy and product design “stuff” for EMI Music, Money Advice Service and soon Telefonica Digital.

I used to live in London and feel a tiny bit responsible for ridiculous Shoreditch. Now I live in a small rural village in North Oxfordshire and keep bees. One day I’d like to design and build a house and try my hand at being a smallholder.
