Scot Farley from F.3 Industrial Design has been an Industrial Engineer for the past 20 years. He studied at the Queensland University of Technology and has a Bachelor and Post-Graduate in Industrial Design. Scot has managed his own business, http://www.f3id.com, which he established in 2002, and has worked on many projects to date. Scot has been involved with the Evolution 360 project for the past 12 months and has been a huge inspiration and mentor for Jim and the Team at Exploding Fish. His passionate, positive and professional outlook is infectious, and bringing the Rod Holder into reality through hard and tireless hours is something Scot has and still enjoys (I think!). But that’s Scot; his extensive knowledge of materials and design and his ability to listen and understand the needs of the client is why the Evolution 360 came to fruition from an idea. Scot would love a dollar for every time Jim rang and said, hey mate, I won’t hold you up, I know you’re probably busy…and an hour or so later!! That’s him, always ready to listen and give you his honest opinion. Jim and the Team have built an ongoing business relationship and we would personally recommend Scot at http://www.f3id.com for your next product design project.
