Hi, I'm Austin.
I love what I do and do what I love with a mind that never stops racing. I am an industrial designer, developer, pattern maker, climber, and biker that catches the early worm only to burn the midnight oil.
I push my designs to be driven by function and use the aesthetic to explain and elaborate. Believing that this is only achievable through testing, I insist on prototyping and testing every product I stand behind.
Between personal passions and projects, I now feel more at home flushing out projects on the road; striving to understand the people these projects are intended for and allowing myself every opportunity to appreciate and test products in the landscapes this brings me through.
Please visit my website for more curated content.
(All design, pattern making, and development shown is done by Austin Waggoner)
