Paul Charlwood
Charlwood Design

Passionate about design in all its facets, he has engaged with many areas of design culture during his career. He established his versatile industrial design consultancy Charlwood Design in 1993, and has since developed a reputation among clients and peers for his innovative, simple yet elegant design solutions for consumer, medical and capital applications. Consequently, the consultancy has collected a raft of design prizes and accolades, among them multiple Premier's Design Awards, 'Gold' at NeoCon, and a Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum and Australian International Design Award, as well as being admitted to the Australian Manufacturing Hall of Fame.

Perhaps the most visible Charlwood Design creations were the Queen's Baton for the 2006 Commonwealth Games. Always eager to support Australia's design culture, Paul has been state President of the Design Institute of Australia and Director, where he co-authored the DIA education policy and contributed to policy and strategy for industry and government. In 2006, he founded the ‘best-selling’ Melbourne Design Guide, a 350 book on local design culture and Sydney Design Guide, and has been a key driving force in establishing the Design for Sustainability working group and the Greenfly lifecycle online tool. His design work has been featured in the National Design Triennial: Why Design Now? The Smithsonian Institution’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York.
