Hans Ramzan (born 12 August 1994, United Kingdom) is a British industrial designer[1], who notably invented the "Catch" HIV Detector.[2]

Career[edit]

Ramzan has worked with LUMA-iD amongst other design studios. He began as a freelancer in 2015, and continues to do so.[3]

In 2014, Ramzan began to design The Phone Cell - a product which aimed to eradicate mobile phone addiction. In mid 2015, he exhibited his work at the Business Design Centre, London.

Upon graduating university, Ramzan co-founded RamzanVong, (later RV Studios). In 2016, RamzanVong created the Pokeball Charger. This idea stemmed from the after the release of the Pokémon Go mobile game, where users complained about how it affected the battery life of their mobile phones.

Shortly after the introduction of the Pokeball Charger, RamzanVong collaborated on The London Tube Collection. This was a furniture collection inspired by the London Underground - initially intended to be gifted to the Transport Design Museum, London.[4] Not long after the collection had been created, RamzanVong exhibited at London Design Fair in the Old Truman Brewery.

In between leaving his previous workplace and starting at another, Ramzan designed and developed CATCH - an HIV detector. The product was aimed at developing nations in the fight against AIDS. CATCH had been recognised for awards, one of which including The Design of the Year. In an interview, Ramzan claims CATCH aims to "do all the thinking for the user".[5] [6]

In 2020, Ramzan was listed as one of Dezeen magazines "Emerging Designer of the Year",[7] and in 2021, Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazine's "Top 10 innovators under 30" [8]
