Industrial design, product design is an applied art, however we like to stay on the art side of that application.
During the summer 2017, I had the opportunity to work as an Industrial Design intern with the team at Loft, LLC. in Providence, RI. A design consultancy, Loft's core mission is connected devices, hardware connected to a piece of software. The firm works with a wide variety of major domestic and international clients (e.g., Bose, Adidas, Mattel, Disney). Loft gave me the opportunity to work on a variety of projects in various stages of the design process — everything from generating new ideas to producing high fidelity models, CAD renderings, UX design, package design, brand identity and developing engineering solutions — as well as the opportunity to interact with clients in formal presentations and informal weekly working sessions.
