For the past month and a half I’ve started working as a professional designer. I’m working as a freelance/contract designer at Kaiju Studios, a small product and furniture design studio in Providence RI with big-name clients from Gillette, to LG, to Herman Miller. While I am starting to get a little sick of the city (if you can call it one) that I went to school in, I’m grateful to have a job in this kind of economy.
So far I’m loving the job. I get paid to do what I love to do and was trained to do. I’ve been working on things from sketching concepts, to storyboarding, to CAD modeling and mocking things up in foam core. Being part of a small studio means I get to approach a lot of different projects and feel that my work has real input. Of course, due to confidentiality I can’t post any of the work here, but I’ll be doing other personal projects in my spare time so I’ll be posting those!
