Dan Jones

London, United Kingdom
I am an enthusiastic Product Designer looking for graduate work. My approach to the design process is both methodical and creative, utilising the skills and techniques I have gained throughout my career. With a plethora of ideation skills, I combine sketching, drawing and model making with digital skills; generating CAD models, renders and 3D printed models to effectively and efficiently communicate concepts and ideas.

My career highlights include contributing to a parliamentary report, having my 3D printed work displayed in the Science Museum and on the front cover of the RSA quarterly magazine. I won a six month internship competition to join the Packaging Design Team at Marks and Spencer where I designed a number of packaging solutions that will be on the shelves in 2015.

I enjoy public speaking and have hosted the TeenTech Awards 2014 and given a lecture on 3D printing to audiences at the Ipex digital printing convention 2014 held in London.
