Industrial Design Co-op
I was a full-time Industrial Design Co-op, during which I was responsible for jobs such as design research, competitor research, concept development, etc. on multiple projects. I was also working on an independent project in my free time, where I took my idea through the entire process; design, competitor, and consumer research, concept development, manufacturing, and material research, and a final presentation that I used to used to pitch my idea to the company that is currently working to put into production.
