This semester, I’m hoping to add an organic aspect to my design portfolio. I’ve worked a lot with sharp/straight cad designs, but recently started working with surfaces and more natural features. I’d like to continue working on the aesthetic side of my designs, rather than focusing on functionality exclusively.
In my first job, I hope to be working as a design engineer, balanced between functionality and visual appearance. Consumer goods are attractive to me for this reason- not only does it need to work well, it also needs to look good. I really like the pace and environment of a start up company, and hope to find a young idea and team I can plug in with early in the product lifecycle. My dream job would be as a lead designer, making creative, visually appealing designs work with my mechanical background.
