Duncan Mowatt

Senior Product Designer

It seems that most people who end up as designers come from a similar place of discovery, and I guess I’m no exception. 

As a kid, I was obsessed with Legos. The interesting thing wasn’t building the model shown on the box, but the potential. It reached the point where I began asking my parents for Legos not based on what was shown on the box, but what unique pieces the model contained. Pieces originally intended to be part of a concrete mixer became boat pontoons. Small flag pole clips because the structural elements of a biplane. In what I still consider a high point in my design career (at the ripe age of 8!), Lego based a model off something I had kit bashed together and mailed back to them. Lego validating that I could look past the picture on the box, ignore the directions, and reorganize these tiny bits of plastic into something not only new, but unique enough to become a real product was life altering to an eight-year-old. 

From then on, I was hooked. Only later did I realize that what I loved doing– thinking about an ingrained idea or concept in a new way, coming up with a solution, and building something out of that idea –had a name. Design. 

This love of design carried me through school and several career paths before settling on Product Design and, ultimately, Xinova.  Xinova is one of the few places I’ve worked where challenging the status quo is not only OK but celebrated. It’s a place where we’re forced to think about something like innovation (which is something that humans have been doing throughout our entire existence), in a new way. It’s a huge challenge, but there’s no other team I’d rather be a part of. (Unless Lego is hiring…)
