Gerry Mayer III
1st Year Master of Industrial Design Student at UIC - Freela...
Hi! I'm Gerry, and I'm a Designer, Maker, and Engineer. My whole life, I have been curious about how things are made and how we use objects and technology to interact with our world and each other. Raised by an Artist and an Engineer, I grew up feeding my creativity by building things and taking things apart, turning ideas into real working objects and I just can’t get enough! I have a passion for learning and I’m always working on projects and hobbies in my free time. I graduated from Villanova University in 2012 with a degree in Electrical Engineering and have been working full time as both a Systems Engineer and Electronics Engineer in the aerospace industry. In 2013, I discovered the field of Industrial Design to be a perfect match for my interests and skills, a combination of creativity, inventing, hands on prototyping, and technical understanding. While intensely self-studying and refining the skills I would need to work towards a career in Industrial Design, I started GMAY3 Design, an Industrial Design consulting company that I actively run in my free time. Since starting GMAY3 Design, I’ve gained a ton of valuable Industrial Design work experience designing for clients such as GCW-Zero, Hooke Audio, and Microsoft. After five years of working as an engineer and learning industrial design on my own, in 2017 I was thrilled to be accepted into the Master of Design in Industrial Design program at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). I'm currently a first year industrial design graduate student with an anticipated graduation date of May 2019. To follow my day to day design adventures, say hello over at Instagram @GMAY3design. It would be great to hear from you!
