Darren Ray

Senior Designer
Design Office Border Oak

When did you start working at Border Oak? 2003

Your interests: Growing vegetables, bicycles, model railways and marbles. Every year I compete with my team the Handcross 49ers at the British Marble Championships (we were Cup Winners in 1997 and Runners Up in 2012).

What do you like best about your job? Working in an office where there is always an expert on every subject on hand - there are plenty of brains to pick!

What’s your favourite Border Oak feature? We are working on an oak gutter at the moment; I'm keen to see how that turns out.

Anything else of interest?  I'm responsible for all the hand drawn images of Border Oak houses,  and if you look closely you'll always find a cat somewhere in my sketches.
