Designed Men's Eddie Bauer SP12 line including expedition, trail, casual, sandals and rain boots. Liaised with Eddie Bauer and Eastman management to acquire a licensing agreement with Eddie Bauer. In this role, I refined my design skills and learned to stay true to the essence of original sketches. I also learned about the importance of establishing and maintaining strong relationships and open communication with factories in product creation and development; an especially important task in maintaining the essence of the original sketch. As a liaison between factories and development teams, I established design standards to maintain effective communication among my contacts. In creating design standards, I was able to value the collaboration between both groups and served as an advocate of communication and compromise.
