I am a young and eager Industrial Designer, with a passion for product design. I love designing personal electronics and everyday household items. My design style can be described as the marriage of sleek and modern lines with a touch of organic and fluid shapes. I am a very eco-friendly designer and I always make it a habit to incorporate reusable or recycled materials into my products.
The purpose and look of a product states a lot about its user; I want to create a lifestyle with the products I design. I don’t want my product to be designed simply to function correctly, but also to make a statement while doing so.
I feel like the most important and innovative designs come from the freshest and most passionate designers like me. I want to be a designer who contributes only good, honest, and ethical products to society. Aside from personal gadgets, I would love to create a groundbreaking product that either betters a person’s life or saves a life. It’s too easy to earn a degree, designing coffee cups and call it a day. If I am to do anything with my career, I plan to inspire, be inspired, and remind everyone that life is what you make it.
