I, Mahdyar Fakhraei Ghazvini, am an industrial designer. I'm 29 and was born in San Jose, CA. I have received my master's degree in industrial Design from the University of Tehran (Feb.2012) and also my bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Aachen University of Applied Sciences (FH-Aachen), Germany. My main interest in design includes fields related to product design & packaging, 3D-modeling, designing households’ consumer products, mold design for plastic or metal products and packages, and interior design. My education in both fields of art and engineering has gave me the ability to use my creativity and arty-styled ideas alongside with mechanism-analysis and production limits’ consideration during designing products and packages so that it could become aesthetically attractive and yet usable at the same time. I deeply consider manufacturing limitations in different types (such as molding, plastic injection, etc.) and details of design during the different processes of designing a product, from the very beginning steps such as primary sketching, till the end of the process and final file-extraction step. I'm fully skilled on working with the SolidWorks® program and have designed and modeled various products and packages that have already been enrolled to manufacturing in mass-production industry. Furthermore, I have extensive amount of experience in rendering engines such as PhotoView® & KeyShot® programs. In addition, I have several years of experience in working with the Adobe Photoshop® and AAA-Logo® design programs. In terms of the field of graphic design, designing logos and brand identity essentials interests me the most. On the side, I also know working with Microsoft® Office® programs: Word®, Excel®, PowerPoint®, and Office Project®). I have more than 4.5 years of total work experience in the field of design, including freelancing and employed jobs. Product-design and focusing on the details aside the whole shape, have always been my favorite fields of interest in industrial design and considering the facts of manufacturing capabilities, has always been a must in my design philosophy in either processes of prototyping or finalizing. Since a year ago, I have also performed as the design manager in various design-projects including product design and packaging projects as well as graphic design projects, and also managed several projects in which I have been positioned in as the observant engineer in prototype manufacturing or mass production processes, etc. Parallel to my permanent jobs, I instructed the SolidWorks® program to some students as well. Beside my university degrees, I gained a certificate of attendance in the metamorphosis workshop of product design from National University of Singapore and University of Tehran, based in a cooperating program between the two universities. I can speak English, German and Persian. With the help of my multi-lingual capability and having been in various cultures (European, American, and Asian), I have got the ability to apply specific design features into a product which is going to be designed and sold in specific targeted markets.
