Roberto Reyes

Industrial Designer

Aarhus, Denmark
I am an industrial designer with a firm user-centred approach. I have experience in concept and product development, mechanical reasoning and 3D modelling. I am a very persistent and analytical person, who gets the big picture and sweats the details. With a very practical point of view, I focus on user-friendliness, functionality and feasibility.
I believe that "well begun is half done", proper research and preparation are crucial to me, whether it is a design project or changing a component of my bike -I like repairing things by myself.
My curiosity drives me. I am eager to learn from different cultures, languages and points of view, and I look forward to working with people who want to create meaningful products and solutions.
I have a strong addiction to music. I attended the National Music School in Mexico for eleven years, pursuing education as an oboist and composer.
