fAbien Rougemont - RedsterDesign
Transportation & Motorcycle Designer
My experience taught me to design a project from scratch to conceptual prototype and industrialization taking in consideration all the industrial aspects.
I've especially developed my management skills during the last 3.5 years where I had to build and plan everything from scratch, the India's 1st International School of Design. I got even more responsibilities and I was strongly leading many transportation and motorcycle design projects that have received recognition and awards.

Head of Transportation Design Studies - at DSK ISD International School of Design [INDIA]
Needing somebody to replace my colleague Thomas DAL [who was working with me since the beginning of the project], I have been supervising myself all the transportation design studies and projects inside the school, all the students plus all my courses and other administrative workloads [material purchase orders, Master classes, networking, valorization of the school, marketing actions…].
I fortunately got some help from Taras CZORNYJ [General Manager Design 4Wh at Bajaj Auto Ltd.] who is still frequently coming in the school to review some projects and give feedback or demos to the students. It is also a pleasure and good to work beside Taras.
