Who are you?
You are an independently-minded, creative person with a passion – a need – to design.
You’re trying to find that perfect workplace where you can exercise all of your well-developed skills, your bright ideas, your keen eye for form, and your sense of humor, all at the same time.
You will take the lead in client relationships and strive to ensure that their needs are on time and on budget. Although you’ve got big ideas, you’re not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get technical: you’re skilled at integrating ideas into original hand-sketched concept drawings and electronic renderings, models, mechanical drawings, and written reports. You know how to develop technical digital layout drawings for mock-up prototypes and initial product parts details and assembly, creating conceptual models using 3-D and 2-D computer modeling software. You live and breathe innovation. Don’t forget your interdisciplinary education of Industrial Design skills and Engineering collaboration need to blend extremely well.
You have a tight portfolio. You’ve built it using a bunch of expensive Adobe products. It features all of your best problem-solving skills and elegant solutions, all drawn up digitally in Sketchbook Pro or Photoshop. The portfolio shows your background research, your thought process, your experimentation, your failures, and how you arrived at your final design. An awesome design with PROCESS shown. Yes it’s true – we like to see how you think.
You’re curious – that’s part of the reason you’re such a good designer. It’s why you’re here right now to start a new adventure with STEL, LLC.
