Joseph K. Grace
Hi, My name is Joseph Kaimilani Grace I'm an Industrial Designer. I have had a passion for design from an early age. That passion was intensified through my industrial design education at the Art Institute, where I had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects in multiple design disciplines. I loved the opportunity to take something familiar and improve upon it. I am constantly learning and love the challenges that come with it. I continue to grow in my work and I am eager to advance further and see my ideations come to life, while also presenting my potential in innovative design.
