David's interest in design comes from how well-designed objects and experiences can affect people's interpretation of the world and of themselves. He is on a mission to bring simplicity, whether that means eliminating fasteners or creating intuitive interactions, to new products. He is excited to pursue his interests in furniture, housewares, or consumer product design in the professional world.

With a work ethic that put him at the top of his class, he just completed his degree in Industrial Design (with a minor in Graphic Design) at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. Throughout his studies, he explored how to define 'good design' and how to apply these principles into a wide range of projects. He was employed at a structural package consultancy for four years and had summer internship designing toys. Read Less

A well designed product or process is:

Appropriate - It questions the context of the problem, considering solutions outside of the product or process where a more fitting solution may be found. It keeps to aesthetics appropriate for its use and setting.

Intuitive - It explains its function by its form and markings. The organization of physical and digital interactive elements (a knob, button, gesture, etc.) logically corresponds with the purpose.

Elegant - It takes an effortless form and construction, while keeping the proper aesthetic. It requires the least amount of interaction from the user to achieve its goal.

Conscientious - It considers issues of ethics and looks for ways to reduce environmental impact. Every step from production, to transportation, to storage, to purchase, to setup and use, to disposal provides an opportunity for innovation.

Well-Crafted - For its purpose, it strives for the highest possible quality. It pays attention to fine details of material choice, color and texture. When appropriate, it endures as long a life as possible.

Satisfying - It solves the user’s need and appeals to human emotion. It provides financial viability for the producer or provider. Read Less
