I am an Industrial Designer working in the Cincinnati area serving clients in consumer products, packaging and medical device design. Corsair Product Design is a small ID firm, located in Cincinnati, OH, that serves clients seeking innovative product design that combines form and function. Corsair is currently seeking additional clients for 2014. I also serve medical clients as a device designer at the Medical Device Engine, a design firm housed within the Emergency Medicine department at UC Medical Center. Our team combines formal contextual inquiry studies with highly technical conceptual design and product development to develop new medical products to enhance patient care.

    Corsair is an independent Industrial Design firm serving clients in all industries. Corsair focuses on the development of functional devices for innovative clients, from inventors and startups to established manufacturers. Unlike a traditional Industrial Design firm, Corsair develops concepts that consider technical constraints (e.g. manufacturing, cost, etc.) up front to get your product to market faster and in a more elegant form.
