Chris Santos is a native New Yorker and industrial design graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Stout. He is a non-traditional graduate with extensively diverse work and life experiences that he believes have allowed him to come into design with a wealth of accumulated insight: the kind that facilitates problem identification and solving. A history of engagement with an array of real-world products, systems and people has made Chris more of a well-rounded, insightful aspiring designer.
From his past school projects to his most recent internship, Chris has enjoyed working both independently and in teams to develop creative solutions to design problems. His experiences have included conducting market, trend and ethnographic research as well as ergonomic, form and color studies. He is adept at ideation and refined sketching, foam modeling, 3-D modeling in Rhino, and rendering in Adobe Creative Suite, Sketchbook Pro and Keyshot.
He is also bilingual: fluent English-Spanish.
