Mahdyar Fakhraei Ghazvini
I, Mahdyar Fakhraei Ghazvini, am an industrial designer. I'm 28 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 (Aug. 2007).
My main interest in design includes fields related to product design & packaging, 3D-modeling, and interior design. My strength includes modeling various parts, packages, household products & furniture, plastic or metallic crafts, etc. 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 during designing a product and packages so that it could become aesthetically attractive and yet usable at the same time.
I'm fully skilled on working with the SolidWorks® program and have designed and modeled various products that have already been enrolled to manufacturing in mass-production industry. I have completed several 3D-modeling projects using this program as well. These projects include as following:
- Designing shapes for cell-phones and hard-drives, modeling industrial machines' parts & assemblies such as components of optomechanical instruments (microscopes & telescopes)
- Modeling packages for different goods (promotional gifts for food companies)
- Interior design particularly exhibit designs and store interiors
- Designing and modeling households such as toasters, shade lamps, LED fiber-lights, coffee maker, ice trays, disk-holder, characteristic swatters, closets, TV & media set desks
- Designing products which are manufactured in mass such as trays, catering sets for airlines (including 3 families of trays with cups, bowls and plates for 3 different classes of passengers)
- Designing oil- & juice bottles which are manufactured by molding & injection method
- designing and modeling playing-instruments for kids such as added valued kick-scooters
- Designing & modeling concepts for running-shoes (which were my master's thesis project).
In addition, I have designed concepts related to the fields of jewelry-design and urban-design. These designs include: designing a ring and a phone-booth.
Furthermore, 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 interests me the most. Due to my extensive interest in this area of design, I have previously designed many logos, logotypes, flyers & posters for different firms.
In addition, I have extensive amount of experience in programs such as PhotoView® and KeyShot® rendering engines which are useful for presenting modeled products & packages.
I have more than three years of work experience exclusively in the fields of design & arts. During this period, my job-roles as an industrial designer were product designing, product modeling and design engineering. Aside my defined duties as the product designer, I have also performed as the design-project-coordinator in some projects. I have also managed several projects in which I have been positioned as the observant field-engineer as well.
I can speak English, German and Persian.
