Bryan Day

Junior Designer

San Jose, CA, USA
As a very mechanically inclined individual, my design process focuses on making sure that my solutions function well early on. Through the building of mock-ups and functional prototypes, every mechanical element must be dialed in before moving to the next phase. I strongly believe that an elegant design is achieved through the thoughtful and careful refinement of each pivot, hinge, slide, or other functional element. I strive to make products that are fun, sleek, and thoughtful inside and out.
