Laut Design

Industrial Designer, Research Specialist, Staff Futurist

As a full time Industrial Designer at Laut Design my focus was design research and project development. I implemented the use of high resolution product animation and augmented reality product visualization. I headed industrial design research presentations, devised project timetables, and sourced numerous production runs and installations. I worked with individual inventors and large companies contributing sketches, product renderings, prototype development, 3D modeling, product animations and production ready data throughout the design process. I worked in various sectors ranging from consumer electronics, medical devices, sporting equipment and housewares, to product packaging, retail displays, marketing materials and restaurant design.
