I am a hard working and dedicated individual who gains immense satisfaction from being involved in all stages of a product’s development. New challenges are something I relish and I consider myself to be a multi-faceted designer. I have gained experience in all aspects of the design process; from product conception and visualisation, to model making, to sourcing materials and manufacturers. contact: email@example.com & +44 (0)7940595541 The design principles I work with are: • design simple and well manufactured products. • sustainability should be a standard. • effective communication between the designer and the client. • a sense of humour is important. • always look to learn new skills and develop existing ones. The hands on experience I gained at my time working for Isao Hosoe Design in Milan, and the varied role I played at Established & Sons in London has prepared me for a product/furniture design role. I am still growing, as both a designer and an individual, and would like to do this within a design company that shares similar principles to mine. I pride myself on my time management and organisation skills, and aim to develop the knowledge and experience that I have gained so far, by being an important asset to a company’s design department.
