Welcome to ahcadesign.com


ahcadesign.com is a working website portfolio for Andrew Hope, a Freelance Designer for Creative Ideation, Design Development, technical drawing, CAD File creation and manufacturing support needs and more.  I am trained as a BDes Hons (Consumer) Product Design graduate from Edinburgh Napier University, Scotland.

I passed elementary exams in differing areas of the CAD Software as shown in my CV to be considered Solidworks Certified (CSWP) as to the right column.

I am willing and mobile to reach a business or working location with my own transport within the UK. My location at the time will be negotiable and based on current location. I am flexible and able to work remotely after consultation or trial Zoom or Facetime meetings.  


I offer 8.5 years of previous design experience as a creative or as a design engineer implementing the workflow of a manufacturing facility. Sometimes for a family business or for a more corporate scale. Please find a downloadable version of my CV for your reference to the right here. I always have had a personal passion for working design knowledge concerning design rationale,  functionality, mechanisms, materials, branding, costings and manufacture of products in modern times and in general. I have therefore shown a good record of adaptability throughout all of my roles and working assignments. I hope to keep learning, growing. 


I can provide a physical paper portfolio which carries a lot more in terms of evidence of technical drawings for manufacture.


I would initially set my hourly rate at £25.00 per hour. Please go to my Contact page to email or call me.

Yours sincerely,

Andrew Hope. BDes HONS Product Design, MiED, CSWP.
