A photo of Tom Darlow

I’m Tom Darlow. I’m a designer spending most of my time bringing products and companies to life.

I’m currently running product at Patchwork where we’re rethinking flexible working in healthcare.

I recently finished a ~25,000km motorbike travel over Asia; India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Singapore.

From 2014 - 2016, together with Luke Barnes and Paul Freeman, I co-founded Fruitful—where people like you invested in mortgages–no bank required.

Before Fruitful, Afroleft was a tiny design firm that helped companies develop websites and online capabilities. We led projects for notable clients such as Countrywide, a University of Manchester spin out company, the UK Government, and many more.

Outside of the day-to-day

Occasionally I speak about the things that I work on. Recently I spoke at The Data Visualisation Summit in London, where I talked about our use visual data at Fruitful.

Along with the wonderful Matt Richards, I founded the Liverpool based show and tell event for people working on products. Demo provides a platform for people working on products and ideas to showcase their work and gain feedback.
