2013 MAY: Teaming Up

Posted by David Wolffe on

I meet Edward and Richard at the award-winning industrial design studio Goodwin Hartshorn. They're also engineers but with a design pedigree, and have worked for an old friend in the world of high-end audio. We hit it off and start work out of their cool but crumbling studio in London's East End. With the addition of Luke, plus his years of experience in backpack manufacture, and James, plus his bag design portfolio, the team starts to really come together.

2013 MARCH: Patents

Posted by David Wolffe on

I file for the first of a series of patents with the P5 prototype. It is a major milestone. I’m now Pat Pending, like the famous professor on The Wacky Races. Nearing the limit of my own engineering capabilities I arrange to meet some industrial designers. Two different design studios tell me they’ve seen nothing like it and it's the biggest commercial idea they have seen from an individual inventor. I'm really starting to think I might be onto something.

2013 FEBRUARY: Discovery

Posted by David Wolffe on

I start doing serious research to see of this idea has legs, frantically checking whether anyone has ever invented a backpack like the P3. Amazingly, it seems there is nothing like it out there. I start intensive work on prototype development in my workshop: the living room. With no garden shed or garage, I have to spread tools and materials all over the carpet, hoping I don't injure anyone. The P4 prototype is a step backwards, but the P5 makes some huge strides forward. Although long ago, my Engineering degree from Cambridge University finally proves incredibly useful in visualising solutions...

2012 DECEMBER: The Turning Point

Posted by David Wolffe on

Back from holiday I buy a couple of backpacks from my local market to build the P3 prototype, following my fresh Moleskine drawings. B*g**r me, but the P3 actually works! I’m brave enough to show my mother-in-law who says I should get it patented. What am I going to do now?  Whilst trying to figure out what this means, I go I see a brilliant patent attorney. He says it is much better than he was expecting from our phone call (I guess he hears from a lot of crackpots) and that I should get it patented. He would say...

2012 AUTUMN: The Catalyst

Posted by David Wolffe on

After two rewarding and intense years at HMV Group plc as the Group Finance Director I decide it is time to pass the baton and start something new. On a family holiday I take one of those self-help career books where they tell you how to brainstorm about what to do next. On the beach that long forgotten backpack idea comes back into my head. I start doodling again in a Moleskine notebook, going back to first principles. I forget about the P1 and P2 and I come up with a new approach. It looks different, and it might just...
