Sketching & Ideation
The initial stage of my design process is deeply rooted in traditional brainstorming: paper, pen, and a world of ideas. During this 'sketching and ideation phase', I often build physical models, conduct in-depth market research, and engage in meaningful interviews. It's a hands-on exploration that keeps me grounded and connected to the project.
Manufacturing Asset Creation
Next up is the 'Asset Creation' stage. It's where design concepts turn tangible, primed for manufacturing. By meticulously crafting 3D models, draftings, technical packets, and build drawings, we bridge the gap from idea to product.
In the manufacturing phase, it's all about making choices that promote sustainability and product longevity. I carefully select manufacturing methods, materials, and hardware with these core principles in mind, always seeking to align my design decisions with the best environmental practices.
