Contracted / Industrial Designer
Apr 2013 - Present (9 years 3 months)
I design products from first concept through all the details of product development. I head up the design effort for multiple projects at a time, and work with colleagues from many backgrounds including engineering, marketing, and sales. I collaborate with the engineering team and other designers to find the best design solutions. I am having great success developing exciting designs that get people talking.
Oct 2012 - Apr 2013 (6 months)
I used Solidworks to create product designs according to customer and manufacturing needs. I communicated with the on-site manufacturing department to ensure the design intent was met, and excellent products were produced. I collaborated with the engineers and other designers to find the best design solutions. I built scalable, intelligent Solidworks models to be programmed and automated with DriveWorks design software.
Apr 2011 - Aug 2011 (4 months)
I headed up the product design, color, branding, and packaging for four products. I gave formal and informal presentations on the progress of each product almost daily. I participated in weekly collaboration meetings to give direction to a small company. I learned the basics of design in the real world as well as the joy and thrill of creating something delightful. This is where I learned to love industrial design
