As part of a matrix Research Design Development (RDD) organisation, and within the Design Engineering function, the Head of Graphics & Packaging runs a large-scale team focused on the design and development of product colour, graphics, literature and packaging.
Based in Dyson's Malaysia Development Centre (MDC) and our Philippines Development Centre (PDC), this international team provides the capability to pick up graphics and packing concepts from their UK-based counterparts and develop these into designs that can be efficiently manufactured at scale.

This means establishing shared goals and expectations, tools and processes - throughout the development cycle from the first milestone to the last.
