Jason Baldwin

Industrial Designer

Madison, IN, USA
My experience ranges from working for small proprietors to multinational corporations in creative, healthcare, construction and education industries, on projects ranging from professional sports facilities (NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB) to music festivals to e-learning packages for agricultural multinationals. I've done a little bit of everything—design, photography, tech support, training—including a stint as a butcher.

I want an honest day's pay for an honest day's work, and by the time I leave, I strive to have made every situation better than when I walked into it.
