Meet the team
Bare Conductive is a design and technology studio based in East London, UK. Our company spun-out from a student project started at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London, where we first developed our Electric Paint. After graduating in 2009 we set up a business and started selling our paint and a range of kits that demonstrate different ways to use this incredible material. From the beginning we have been passionate about developing accessible platforms for people to get creative with technology. From paint, to starter kits and now hardware, our goal is to make electronics fun and intuitive by blending design and technology.
Roger is founding chairman of the Company and has a wide experience of starting ventures, having started more than 10 companies. He is a graduate engineer and a visiting consultant to Imperial College. Roger brings a wide range of contacts and advisors to Bare Conductive and is responsible for fund raising and shareholder affairs.
Grace read History of Art at the University of Leeds before moving to Kyoto, Japan where she lived for two years. At Bare she enjoys learning about design in its cultural context, helping promote events and workshops, and chatting to people about their creations with Electric Paint.
Stefan is an electronic engineer and designer with experience spanning high voltage design, interactive artworks and distributed solar power. He splits his time between his oscilloscope, his debugger and imagining great new ways to burn down the studio.
Peter is an experienced alternative investments banker and active private investor. He has a successful track record fostering innovation as an independent early stage investor and strategic advisor. Peter spent 10 years in private banking, and has provided strategic advice and early stage funding for a number of successful start-ups including the social media music site Last FM.
Matt is a bit of a designer and a bit of an engineer and most comfortable being split between the two. At Bare, Matt likes to split his time between talking to people about the products and sitting at the bench playing with a pot of Electric Paint and a pile of kit.
Peter is a designer and engineer who loves bringing ideas to life. Before studying design at the RCA he was working on open-source, small scale, micro hydro electric controllers in Guatemala. He is fascinated by materials, energy transfer, printable electronics, water, the illogical and dreaming.
With a background in Communication and Japanese crafts, Isabel has a keen interest in combining digital technologies with traditional production processes. At Bare, she can be found creating digital content, testing prototypes, answering questions about Electric Paint, or messing about in the garden.
An Aeronautical Engineer by training, Rafat's career has spanned International business, aerospace, defence and security, and academia. He is currently Director for Business Development for Duke Corporate Education, a Joint venture organisation between Duke University and the London School of Economics.
Bibi is an experienced project manager with several years of practice with international clients at Jason Bruges Studio. At Bare she juggles her time between making sure the studio runs smoothly, and developing tutorials involving paper crafts and Electric Paint.
Before founding Bare, Becky trained as a Mechanical Engineer and specialised in experimental design, practicing an opportunistic approach to the creation of prosthetics. When not in her lab coat, Becky can usually be found developing kits to demonstrate the many uses of Electric Paint.
Ala's background is in visual communication, but in the last few years her work has expanded beyond traditional graphic design, and she's been exploring the overlapping spaces between technology, design and interaction. At Bare Ala makes the intelligent eye candy.
