TO BE BRIEF.
I DESIGN OUTDOOR GEAR.
ALONG WITH A WHOLE LOT OF OTHER STUFF PUT LESS BRIEFLY BELOW.
I'm currently studying Product Design Engineering (BSc) with Professional Practice at Brunel University London. I have training in both traditional design practices like sketching, model making, marker rendering, Metal/Wood/Plastic Machining as you'd expect but also in areas such as 3D CAD modelling with Solidworks, Rapid prototyping Techniques and Graphic Design with the Adobe Creative Suite. I won't list all the software and skills here just to keep the overview brief but if you want to find a more indepth list then click on the "learn more" button to see my complete CV. Or Scroll down to the Project overviews to show how I've applied them.
The outdoors is the market I want to design for because it’s where I enjoy being the most. Whether I am just designing for it or going out on an expedition, it’s where my best ideas come from. I aim to produce creative concept generation, with the engineering background to backup concepts with practical production. I have spent my placement year working with Solar Technology International and it's sub-brand Freeloader designing and developing their range of outdoor products.
I have training in the full adobe suite and have created logos and graphic posters for a variety of clients and personal work.
I have a strong background in getting creative ideas from an initial seed to a final manufacturable product
My traditional design skill set is backed up by the ability to 3D model your designs on Solidworks, Provide rendered versions through Keyshot and stress test them using FEA techniques.
