About me
Currently, I'm a graduate of Industrial Product Design at Brunel University. In recent years I have been gearing myself towards a career within the creative design industry. Hence, I have taken on skill sets guiding me in this direction i.e. Product Analysis, Systems Design, Graphic Communication, and Design process. Be it an idea, vision, or concept it has to be given a form for it to be understood. The design has many applications and opportunities which drew in my interest, allowing me to cultivate my own ideas, concepts, and values. As a designer my values lie in, providing a formative solution that dovetails with a functional design. I aim to push for a sustainable, affordable solution, particularly for a forward-looking sustainable market. Cultivating my own ideas and concepts has allowed me to develop skills from, 3D CAD to the use of Adobe and Microsoft software. I present these ideas or concepts through an iterative process, which continuously refines itself to a commercially viable end. My Industrial Design degree has allowed me to produce ideas that have form and structure, developed from a Fine Art background. I began my journey with sketches going on to product design. Through Product Design, I developed my ability to critically evaluate and analyze the relationships between innovation, design, advertising, and marketing. To become a more rounded creative mind and designer.
