Martin Hislop — Product Design + Editorial Work

Born in Dunfermline in 1990, from parents whom are both Scottish. I grew up in Glasgow and started architectural studies in Edinburgh.

I live and work in London, while I have worked in Milan and Paris as an editor and have written many articles for designboom. During this time I have interviewed high ranking figures within the design sphere, plus my editorial style was recirculated in TIME Magazine.

My work covers a multitude of creative industries from product design, technology, art, graphic design and media.

In 2014, I was fortunate enough to have my digital art work exhibited and credited in TATE Britain’s exhibition exploring the rise of social media platforms in modern society.

Subsequently, I completed my Product Design & Innovation degree at The University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.

I am particularly interested in product design, editing and storytelling, smart technologies that encourage users to ‘switch off', recycling materials during the development of useful products, in addition to travelling, meditation, writing and photography.

On a personal level, I enjoy all things art, design, architecture, outdoors, performance and music.
