I am a mechanical engineering student currently in my senior year. Throughout my undergraduate career I have learned many new skills from coding to fabrication. I am particularly good at building things once I’ve thought out it’s design, I usually like incorporating math into my designs as I find it to be helpful when I want to be very precise.
I’m a very good team player and enjoy working with people on projects, I’m not a talkative person, so you mostly will only hear me comment when I have something to say. When I work on a project I strive for the best and ideal solution, but at the same time I am a realist, so I know perfection cannot be attained but striving for it almost always leads to the best results in any situation.
What I hope to learn from this class is how to design and create something which will appeal to the audience I am trying to reach, but not in the way you may think. What I want to learn are the subtle elements you add to a design like sharp vs smooth corners, or a glossy vs matte color for example which can change peoples’ perception of a product. This “intuition” I am trying to gain can be very useful to me in my personal and professional lives as having an intuition into what appeals to people is invaluable.
