Work History

I am a graduate of the College for Creative Studies 08' with a BFA in Industrial Design - Product. My formal name is James Baker Jr, but I usually go by Jim. I'm pretty easy going and work well with others. I actually prefer to work in a team based environment. I find it to be greatly beneficial as far being able to share ideas, and critique work before presentations. However, I have no problem with self motivation and/or working independently. Relevant work history includes graphic, exhibit, and product design: 2010-Current - Elkhart Brass Mfg Co Inc - Industrial Designer 2008-2009 - We R Xhibits - Designer / Account Executive 2007-2008 - Orizon Ingenuity - Sr. Graphic Artist / Director of Brand Development Hand skills include sketching and rendering with pencil, pen, marker, and on a Wacom Tablet or Cintiq. As far as digital skills, I have a working knowledge of the following programs: - Autodesk AliasStudio - Autodesk Showcase - Rhinoceros 3.0 and 4.0 with Flamingo render - Solidworks - NX I-deas 6.1 - Adobe Creative Suites including: Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, In Design, Dreamweaver, and Acrobat Pro - Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Excel If you would like any addition information please contact me directly via email or cellphone. I'm always looking for new opportunities. You can also view my full resume by linking to my website or finding it in my portfolio section (website is currently down). Thanks. Jim
