Jeremy passed his Design Degree in 1996 and promptly went into live music and venue management. He helped run the De Montfort Hall in Leicester for half a decade during which time he helped set up three music festivals. Making the move into event production seemed like the obvious choice and he worked on numerous events over the next few years as a self employed Production and Site Manager (Larmer Tree, Summer Sundae, End of the Road, Glastonbury).

Then family life became the new priority, so a more settled approach led to taking on some property development and from that moving into carpentry. Reviving some events contacts Jeremy managed to swing a few contracts making bespoke items for events, which led to bigger projects which led to… well you get the picture. Skip on a few more years and you’ll find him in his own workshop designing and making all sorts of weird and wonderful stuff for all sorts of weird and wonderful people. Which is how he met Rik, who’s certainly wonderful…

Through this Jeremy has lots of experience in CAD so a jump to setting up a CNC business seemed like an excellent adventure as he really likes designing and making cool, interesting stuff and what better way to do it than with a great big computer controlled routing machine?



Designer & Maker

Being passionate about design and making from a young age Ross pursued a degree in Product and furniture design at De Montfort University in 2017. During this time he gained lots of experience especially while on his placement year working for a renowned bespoke joinery company. Ross received multiple design awards throughout his studies and graduated with a first class honours.

Post graduation he wanted to apply his design skills and broadening his knowledge in the sustainability sector, so accepted a role at the University of Bath. Ross would help advise on new campus builds and retrofits of old buildings to help improve their energy efficiency while reducing their carbon impacts to our environment. He explains ‘our design decisions have a direct impact on our natural environment, by being in touch with this allows me to make better decisions when designing clients projects’.

Fast forward to 2021, Ross was welcomed to the creative team at ARN, where he designs, makes and operates our in house cnc machine and laser cutter. Since being here Ross has had the pleasure of working with household named brands, local businesses and independent people, turning their ideas into a reality.

When he is not in the studio Ross enjoys spending his time: going to the gym, swimming, finding new places to travel, or on the hunt for the best pint with his mates.
