Duncan McKean is a designer, writer and teacher currently based near Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Since replicating the excerpts of The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy on his BBC Model B computer as a searchable database in the style of CEEFAX many moons ago, Duncan has been driven by a creative spirit. This was not fully realised until a change of career led him to become the successful designer that he is today.
His background is in Product Design which he studied at one of the UK’s top Engineering Faculties in Bristol completing 4 years of study with the highest cumulative mark in the (then) history of the course. Several of his projects have been recognised in national competitions, and his work has appeared on high-profile design industry websites. He has also held courses in Rhino 3D, and taught university students the digital design skills they need to be competitive product designers. Duncan’s overall approach to design, creativity and strategy has helped him gain amazing clients such as Greenpeace, David Lynch Foundation, Elsevier and the UK Home Office. Duncan also runs creative methodology training workshops whenever the need arises.
In what little spare time that remains he spends fixing up old bikes, cooking, playing guitar, teaching himself new skills and spending time with his family.
