Buckley Williams are a small design consultancy that works with teams to explore technology. They use making and research to help companies think about the future. They blend research, workshops, hardware prototypes and working software to find new ways of looking at problems.

They have prototyped how technology could be better used in end of life care in the UK, helped maths teachers in Mexico invent apps for their pupils and taught young designers how to sketch in code. Currently they are teaching a genetic algorithm to read out personalised radio news bulletins, sort of like a robot radio presenter.

Buckley Williams is lead by principals Nat Buckley and Dan Williams. They have spoken at LIFT, Future Everything, Nordic Ruby, O’Reilly Solid, Future Fest and Science Museum London; exhibited work as part of Big Bang Data at Somerset House; and taught at Goldsmiths, UCA Epsom, National Film and Television School and LCC, among others.
