Head of Industrial Design
X (formerly Google[x])
In 2016, Nick Foster became head of industrial design at X, the moonshot factory, formerly known as Google[x}. X is a "moonshot factory"—a team of inventors, engineers, prototypers, designers and scientists who work with industry experts and commerical partners around the world to solve what may seem unsolvable.
Previously, Foster served as principal designer in Nokia's Advanced Design studio in Silicon Valley and as senior designer for Sony Electronics in London. He worked as a consultant for Seymourpowell and as a design engineer for Dyson. Foster earned his MA in design products from the Royal College of Art and his bachelor’s degree in product design from Brunel University—both in England.
