MDes / BA (Hons) Product Design
Hello! My name is Richard, I’m 22 years old and as an Industrial Designer, I pride myself in my ability to communicate design proposals through sketches, renderings and orthographic drawings of high standard. While I consider CAD modelling/rendering to be one of my biggest strengths, I’m also proficient in various Adobe programs, including Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.
I am quick to build a rapport with peers and capable of taking on various roles within groups. And conversely, I have a solid work ethic that allows me to work efficiently on an individual basis as well.
My final major project – Fortis – is an anti-theft storage product that utilises an RFID-shielding storage pod, encased by a sleeve of slash-proof fabric, all sealed with a magnetic locking mechanism. By designing my product this way, it ensures the safety of end users’ valuables when they venture into high-risk environments – particularly from pickpockets and bag-slashers – while simultaneously allowing the user to retrieve them with little-to-no effort.
