    Industrial Product Designer

    New Bombay, India

Being a Designer my strong belief is to change the world, change is for betterment, perfection, change for the ultimate desire of the human being. Yes, Designer have this strong ability to change the world. I have completed Master of Design (M.Des) from Dept. of Design, IIT Guwahati and currently working as a Product Designer to satisfy my inner instincts of design. I think Designing is not just to make a product, but its a touch, a feel, an attachment we experience with it. I am an energetic Product Designer with 6+ years of experience in designing lifestyle products. Passionate about translating emerging trends into successful product line that connect through an emotional level. Though I am specialized mainly in perfumes,cosmetics & personal care range products, I have designed other Products too, that you can figure out from my portfolio. So sky is the limit here. From market research, it is found that more beautiful appearing products are perceived to be easier to use than those that had less visual appeal so my design ranges unique products with distinct aesthetic features within cost limit. My work includes, sketching, concept generation & ideation, 3d modelling (Rhinoceros) & product assembly detailing (AutoCAD) , 3d rendering (Bunk-speed Shot / Keyshot), Final touch up (Photoshop) and final presentation to the clients(MS Office). I have good knowledge of Glass, Plastics parts and their assembly as well as mould operation and manufacturing processes techniques. I possess strong concept visualization & sketching skills. Besides this I am hard worker and can adopt any work environment as per need, I am open to work as an individual or in a team. Looking for an opportunity to learn new things in design as well as utilise my own skills to give my side best to the industry.
