My name is Kieron Barter, I have a Ba Honours degree in Model Design and I set up Funky Lemon Design in 2009 after gaining valuable experience with well-established model making companies and individuals. Continually striving to push myself and expand my skill into other areas means I have accumulated a diverse range of skills in and around the world of model making.
Our work has, and often does, take us half way across the world. Whether it's working on exhibitions and models in Bahrain, safety planning models in Denmark or interactive displays in Switzerland we can manage multi-disciplined projects to minimise organisational burden and stress to the client. We can also offer model making services on a freelance basis if required.
Add a twist of Funky Lemon to your next creative project
Funky lemon is a multi-discipline company which can offer our help and support right throughout your creative project from initial conception right through to construction. We are not a giant company with receptionists who have no idea what it is you really need or sales people who simply just want to take your money. We offer a more personal, caring service where you can talk directly to the people you need to, when you need to. If you have a query or would simply like some advice to help you achieve your creative project goals then there will always be someone ready to help.
With our background in Model design, we don’t just have the knowledge and expertise to cut your parts. We can take your initial ideas, design them with construction in mind, produce your parts and then construct them. The fact that we are a team with qualifications in Model design means we can combine design skills with model making and manufacturing skills which is particularly important if producing multi material projects or very complex constructions. A full design and manufacture process, at an accessible price point.
Our model making services frequently means we are sending very delicate, specialist products all over the world so if you have parts which are especially large or difficult to package then we can make a bespoke box and organise the shipping on your behalf.
I think the level of detail and the quality of finish, is a real credit to Kieron, who put the model together, its fantastic!

Head of Communications, Citroën UK
I was looking for an innovative way to demonstrate an idea for a pitch, and came across Funky Lemon Design via an internet search. From the initial call, Kieron was professional and helpful, and provided reassurance that he would be able to deliver something to meet my needs within my very short timeline. He provided me with timely updates throughout the development of the model garden, sending pictures to show how it was coming along. The final product was delivered in a sturdy case so it could be transported without causing any damage, and I am incredibly pleased with the result.
