The Industrial Designer is instrumental to our work of serving clients. Our designers develop designs and prototypes for some of the world’s largest brands. With a focus on design quality and manufacturability, we seek to fully understand the needs of the client and deliver results that exceed their expectations. Designers are expected to serve every stage of the process, from concept sketching through prototype building. Experience in a manufacturing organization such as paper/corrugated, thermoforming, blow molding, etc. is a huge plus.
