Currently, I am a Senior Industrial Design Student at the Shintaro Akatsu School of Design (SASD) at the University of Bridgeport. Also, I was educated two years at the KonKuk University in South Korea Since youth age, I always enjoyed creative activities such as making model and sketching(doodling). Creative activities make me happy and feel alive. That is the prime reason for choosing the Industrial Design Major, and I am studying so far. I'm always enjoying to study human behaviors and figure out their needs for expand my perspective and to be an out of box thinker. I believe that design can intimately affect our life value positively with an efficient way to the better world. There are many interesting pieces of design knowledge I have to learn, so I am always running to do the endless study. Especially, I love to horn my design technics such as design sketching, photoshop rendering, 3D modeling, and rendering. I have invested such a long time for improving my design technics to a professional level. I have uploaded my portfolio and resume on my website, http://www.taehoonpark.com, so if you are interested in my portfolio, you can pass by my website! Also, I frequently upload my random sketches on my Instagram account @th_park7 SKILLS: Tradicional Drawing Pencil & Pen Sketching Marker Rendering Prototype Model Making Model Making Photoshop Retouching Photoshop Rendering Photoshop Illustrator AutoCAD Solidworks NX 9.0 Rhino 3D Keyshot
