Eddy Lai (Chinese Name: Juen-Bang, Lai)
Specialties: Industrial Design, Design Management
My name is Eddy Lai and I am a responsible, motivated product designer and project manager. I recently immigrated to United States on June 2011 to learn English and to challenge myself. I have been working in the Industrial design industry in Taiwan for over 10 years. I have worked for big companies like Mitac International Corporation designing portable navigation device. While at Mitac, I have created several products for GPS brands (MIO, Navman, Magellan) that have successfully launched in the world-wide market. In addition, at Tatung Company, I have designed many computer monitors and television products. My projects often involve marketing research, sketching, 2D rendering, and conceptual planning to production.
One of the successful projects I worked on at Mitac required me to design a mount for the portable navigation device. While designing the product, I had to take into account the weight of the device, the mobility of the device at different angles and the different surfaces the mount could be on. This finished product has done very well in the market today. Please view my project “2008-7 inch-CARMOUNT-DESIGN” in my portfolio.
Although I am not very fluent in English yet, I am very confident in my works and work ethics. My experiences have enhanced my skills to work well on a team or independently. I have maintained a positive attitude when tackling diverse and demanding workload that has resulted in successfully completed jobs. My bilingual skills will be a great asset to the company if the company ever wants to expand its business to Asian countries like China or Taiwan.
I offer you a dedicated, disciplined and innovative product designer who has all the necessary skills and knowledge to help the company grow. I have attached a copy of my resume for you to review. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon.Please feel free to contact me via email as below: email@example.com, Thanks
