innovate247 posted a topic in Design DiscussionsI'm developing a consumer gadget for Kickstarter.com & global distribution. The design is complete & its ready for the next stage which is having it properly critiqued & possibly re-tweaked by an experienced industrial engineer w/ vast experience in the consumer sector. I'm seeking an industrial engineer w/ verifiable experience in plastic injection molding & preferbaly airtight design knowledge. This will be a freelance contract position, part-time. *Other requirements include strong experience in SolidWorks/3D solid modeling proficiency, understanding of different plastics in the usage/manufacturing process, good understanding of general plastic costs & preferbaly experience in airtight product designs. If you feel you fit the above pls send your portfolio/resume to ; email@example.com
I'm developing a portable consumer product & have begun searching for an industrial designer. I expected a challenging journey as any start-up, although wasnt quite expecting the uphill challenges of finding a raw, uniquely talent designer/concept developer who has reasonable fees & the availability. Not sure if this is a common occurance, but what I've found is that truly talented concept/brainstorm gurus are rare & charge steep fees, & usually dont have the industrial-3d skills. The other spectrum I've found is designers w/ CAD skills but not strong in design development. I'm developing my concept from scratch & soley funding it to be launched on kickstarter. I've tried Coroflot, behance, elance, freelancer. I found the similiar issues in all of them. *Does anyone recommend any resources to find talented product developers/industrial designers who are reasonably priced? Based on my budget & the raw creativity I'm seeking, I've thought about reaching out to ID schools. Just not sure the best way to approach this. Seems students in school or recently graduated would be a good route as my priorities are in finding a naturally gifted designer w/ a keen eye. Any suggestions appreciated, thanks!
