Surface Designer

In my five years as a Surface Designer for Target I worked on a variety of categories of home goods, from bath and bedding and kitchen to lunch bags and luggage with lots of additional categories in between. I was responsible for designing programs worth up to $30m in sales dollars. I developed products and assortments from the very earliest stages of market, trend and customer research all the way through sketches, specs, product development, milestone meeting approval, product execution, final product and in-store assortment.
