Jared Thompson: Product Designer
Bolton, Manchester, United Kingdom
I am a Product Design (BSc) graduate from the Northern School of Design with a keen interest in industrial design. I believe that through design we can change our daily routines and tasks to improve our lives for the better. I have experience in Computer Aided design Software; such as Solidworks and working with rendering packages such as Adobe CS4.
Final Year Degree Show Work
Founder of Design Juices I own and run my own design magazine site, which was established in February 2010. Here I write on an almost daily basis, I expand my design education and strive to learn something new about design each day. I also have expansive experience in writing for several design sites across the web such as Smashing Magazine and Nenuno Creative.
Over my three-year course at university we had the opportunity to work alongside several companies for competitions and as projects in developing new ideas and products. We worked with Eighth Wonder; a toy design studio, which has ties with several high street brands and stores. We also took in design work with Constellation Wines, Bayer Plastics and other small design studios and individuals who would also help in final year development work.
