Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Anna Myers

As a student at the College for Creative Studies I have over a year and a half of professional industrial design experience. In the design world I have worked on sporting goods with Adidas North America, packaging design with LPK, toys with Hasbro, consumer goods with Beyond design, medical devices with Ethicon Endo Surgery and a military contracts for a consultancy. For the experience in these various fields of Industrial Design I have become skilled in many areas of the process; trend and material research, watertight 3d modeling and rendering, high quality sketches, finalized renderings and energetic brainstorming sessions.

I am a dedicated designer with an unyielding passion for creating an excellent product. I am interested in freelance and contract opportunities for both product design, illustration and graphic design.
