COLIN Z's DESIGN STORY

  Working in the design field for over ten years, constantly looking for opportunities to grow as a designer and as an individual. I possess strong organizational and communication skills, with experience managing multiple projects simultaneously, while working under tight deadlines. I have an ability to develop and learn new processes & techniques on the fly, working quickly without sacrificing the overall quality of my work.

  Over the past decade I was able to advance my career, creative skills, and master many techniques needed to design and develop products efficiently. Throughout that time, I was exposed to many types of design work and gained valuable understanding of the creative process, seeing a product go from the conceptual phase to production. I have thrived while working on a team of designers and also independently.

 

I have comprehensive expertise and extensive experience with Product Development, Product Management, Product Invention, Innovation & Optimization, Engineering, Conceptual Development, Designing & Testing Mechanisms, CAD/CAM, 3D-Printing, Prototyping, Design for Manufacturing, Conducting Market Research, and creating various Digital Assets.
