2 — Jude Pullen

On this episode, I talk with Jude Pullen, a product design engineer, and also the creator of the Design Modelling website, a series of tutorials, techniques and project ideas for working with low cost prototyping materials, mostly cardboard. Jude also runs live workshops where he shows people how to make models to express and share ideas.

Jude helped me compile the links below, roughly in the same order that we covered this ground in the podcast. Loads of good stuff in here, so do check them out. If you’re listening, I strongly recommend you check out the design modelling website first, so you know what the hell we’re talking about.
