I'm a qualified Industrial Designer, with 3+ years experience working in the design and manufacture space.
Starting off at a sheet metal manufacturer before moving on to a shopfitting company, I've been lucky enough to spend my career designing things that come to life, and often distributed around the 2 largest supermarkets in Australia!
My life is brainstorming with a team - throwing out ideas, just having fun with it! Sometimes it's the out-there, far-fetched suggestions that lead to the good stuff.
It's seeing a project through from the very start where things are fun, through the mess and stress of hard work (repeat as necessary) to the 'close all tabs' excitement and pride of seeing the final product.
I love the nitty gritty hands on work to get a prototype across the line as much as spending hours in CAD-land to model and detail something for production.
Most of all, I try to spend my day having fun and achieving great things with the people I work with! Throw in a variety of projects, the ability to learn new things with every job, all while trying to look after the planet and it's people and you have yourself the perfect job!
