NICE TO MEET YOU - I'M JOE
I am a product design consultant in Long Beach, California, specializing in providing entrepreneurs, inventors, and small businesses efficient and affordable solutions for all their design needs. I am experienced in conceptual design, product development, CAD, and product renderings. Mockups, prototypes, 3D printing, and limited manufacturing/vendor relations are other services I can provide.
I enjoy the opportunity to help inexperienced customers to understand the design and manufacturing process. It can be a complex journey of questions and compromises, but one which even a novice inventor can still navigate with the right information.
I founded my consulting practice in 2006, specializing in CAD and concept design. Since then I have helped dozens of clients to bring their ideas to life. My designs have been featured in online articles, corporate brochures, and tradeshows.
In addition to my consulting practice, I also teach product design at California State University, Long Beach. I instruct on advanced uses of design software, but also on how technology and machinery (such as 3D printing) is used for prototyping and manufacturing. I endeavor to be an ambassador of design to both my students and my clients.
Let me help you get that idea out of your head and onto paper where others can understand it.
FIrst and foremost, I view myself as a design educator. I teach design at CSULB and I typically work with inventors. I always endeavor to be an ambassador of design thinking and design process to both my students and clients
Through many years of consulting I have learned the need to be efficient with both time and money. I will always attempt to work within your budget and strive to assist you with all your design needs.
Elegance in design goes far beyond aesthetics. Elegance is subtle and seamless. Elegance works with human forms and human nature. Elegance is achieving function while reducing complexity. Elegance is simply good design.
Not only my experience, but the experience of those who would use the products that I design - this must always be considered. My consulting projects have been in a wide variety of markets, and I'm sure this experience will assist in your project too.
OVERCOMING THE CHALLENGES OF
BRINGING A PRODUCT TO LIFE
The design process is an approach for breaking down a large project into manageable sections, and further identifying aspects which require problem solving.
