RICHARD JOLLEY + BASMAH JOLLEY
Nu Bear Ltd is a multidisciplinary design studio that specialises in industrial design, visualisation, animations, set and event design. We work within a variety of industries including Aviation, Automotive, Film, TV and Lifestyle. Founded in London 2017 by husband and wife, Richard Jolley and Basmah Jolley.
Both Richard and Basmah are graduates of Industrial Design from the University of Loughborough, UK. Between them, they have over 25 years of design experience in a variety of sectors. Richard has spent many years designing Aircraft Interiors for both luxury and commercial aircraft. He has built a reputation for delivering conceptual design right through to viable working products. Basmah crafted her skills in the design for Live Events, Film and TV. She was part of the design team for the London 2012 Olympic Opening and Closing ceremonies and more recently has worked on the latest James Bond sets for 'No Time to Die' (2020) and the Agatha Christie Films, 'Murder on the Orient Express' (2017) and 'Death on the Nile' (2020).
We have both grown up with a love for the ocean. Basmah lived on an island for 6 years, spending time in water almost every day and Richard, even though he was landlocked for most of his life, enjoys every water sport under the sun, from Scuba diving to Sailing, Windsurfing to Kitesurfing. We have a great appreciation of the sea and the marine life it holds, so is important to us that we care and respect it. As we spend a lot of time in the water, we have seen a dramatic increase in plastic pollution, most of which appear to be single-use.
What can Nu Bear do to help?
We are conscious of the impact we the human race are having on our oceans, especially the ever-increasing plastic waste and its devastating effect on marine wildlife. We want to be as socially responsible as we can with our product, packaging and shipping.
Firstly, we are dedicated to engaging in an environment-friendly packaging production process, with no single-use plastics. We actively designed our packaging to omit any plastic trays, clear plastic windows to display our product, plastic hanging tags and vacuum-sealed packaging. All our packaging can be recycled.
Secondly, as one of our Kickstarter rewards, we are carrying out beach clean-up initiatives in the UK and abroad. It may be small initially, but it is something we will continue to grow and invest our time in. As we develop as a company we will expand and actively contribute to fighting our global problem.
What can you do?
We welcome anyone who wishes to join us on our beach clean-up initiatives, but we appreciate that not everyone has the time or the access to do so. However, you can actively support one or more of our Kickstarter rewards that would help these initiatives.
