    Industrial Designer

    Bogotá, Colombia

I am strongly interested in the development of industrial products that satisfy users' needs, focusing on the functional, innovative, artistic, and quality aspects that contribute to the expansion of the product in the market. My certification in the use of software such as 3ds Max, V-Ray and Inventor (by Autodesk, Naska Digital and ECCI University, respectively) allows me to produce design projects according to both European and American quality procedures. POP products, furniture, stands, attention centers, 3D characters, and animation are some of my main professional interests. In addition, I have developed audiovisual contents for websites, advertising, and several companies’ corporate identities. I am fluent in Spanish, English, and have basic knowledge of German. Me apasiona el desarrollo de productos industriales que satisfagan las necesidades del usuario, con atención a los aspectos funcionales, innovadores, artísticos y de calidad que contribuyen a la expansión del producto en el mercado. Los certificados en el uso de software como 3ds Max, V-Ray e Inventor (proporcionados por Autodesk, Naska Digital y la Universidad ECCI, respectivamente) me permiten llevar a cabo proyectos de diseño acordes con los estándares de calidad europeos y americanos. Productos POP, muebles, stands, centros de atención, personajes en 3D y la animación son algunos de mis principales intereses profesionales. Además, he desarrollado contenidos audiovisuales para sitios web, comerciales e identidad corporativa de empresas. Hablo español e inglés y tengo conocimientos de alemán.
