About My Co-op Experience

I participate in the ideation and the sketching stages of home improvement product design and modify designs for personal care products. I base product details on research from case studies for product development.

What I Learned from My Co-op Experience

It was extremely helpful to work at Beyond Design, a team-oriented industrial design firm. I not only learned a lot about the industrial design process, I was able to develop and build relationships with clients and fellow designers.
