Creative Interfaces Ltd

Creative Interfaces was founded by Dr Bernie Rickinson in 2019 with the goal of helping the UK take a global leadership role in effective interdisciplinary partnerships, wealth creation and materials sustainability.

With an International reputation for materials, and particularly their processing by advanced technologies, Dr Bernie Rickinson has developed through his career an enthusiasm for effective knowledge transfer.

Through pioneering work in the mid 1990’s he recognised the need for better connection of materials scientists and their work to end markets, and how the feedback of “need” could positively influence materials development. As former CEO of the Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining (IOM3) he subsequently co-created the Materials and Design Exchange (MaDE), thus enabling the expertise of UK product design and materials communities to be shared across industry and academia.
