Clifford Denn Design
Design services primarily include exterior styling and interior design of luxury yachts, but also cruise ships, product design and graphic design. With a BA Honours degree in Industrial Design (Engineering) Clifford graduated from Leicester in 1984 after winning the prestigious ‘Royal Society of Arts Industrial Design Bursaries competition’. In 1985 he joined Norman Foster’s office where he met Martin Francis, and two years later in 1987, accepted Martin’s offer to join him designing yachts in the South of France. Projects included the 52m Azteca refit, 65m Golden Shadow new build and Clifford was the project designer for the 74m gas turbine / diesel powerd ECO (Katana). This was followed by a spell in the UK designing medical products with Design Technology, and Cruise ship Exteriors / Interiors for Tillberg / SMC. He then returned to France as a partner of Archibald (land based interiors and yachts) for four years, before creating Clifford Denn Design in 2003.
