It is my belief that the importance of good design cannot be understated. It is perhaps the greatest asset to a product aside from its ability to function as promised and is a key contributor to a company’s brand identity. While users may not know how a product works or is made, they do know what its like to engage with it on all sensory levels. Because of this, I believe that design and product interaction are universal to the consumer experience and that good design can make or break a product’s success in the marketplace.
My passion for great design combined with my technical background allows me to solve design problems from not only an aesthetic perspective, but also account for technical design requirements. I am able to design with many requirements in mind such as material selection and manufacturing, as well as the usability and user experience in both digital and physical products.
