Here at Digital Lancashire, we understand the value of coworking and collaboration and we know there are challenges across Lancashire in identifying spaces where this kind of work can flourish. Society1 in Preston created their space almost two years ago now and have a growing community of creative and digital people and companies.
They’ve recently started a coworker feature on their blog and we came across this one with Dr Staffan Evans – a Chartered Mechanical Engineer, specialising in Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) and Engineering Simulation Software.
What inspires/drives you?
Steffan: I’m a mega-nerd, plain and simple, but I love the balance between scientific theory and the art of making things a reality! The technology I use and sell really is at the cutting edge of the industries I work with. The best part is seeing a super-cool product that is made better by my input. I recently rode an Evotech-designed mountain bike through a forest at 45mph, safe in the knowledge that it was both structurally sound and super-lightweight. The ’16-year old me’ would never have thought that was possible!
