Summary

I am an experienced industrial designer with a background in exhibit design looking to change to consumer product designer role. I designed a few products that made it to market at my first job and I know it’s what I want to do with my career going forward. My background includes more than five years of professional industrial design experience as you can see by perusing my attached resume. I know that I would bring an enthusiasm to your company and an excellence in creativity that you have been seeking.
I am very passionate about design, problem solving, and creative solutions. I am also very passionate about the outdoors, snowboarding, and mountain biking. I graduated in 2011 from Rochester Institute of Technology's industrial design program. I took my first design job, working for an aluminum modular systems manufacturer called the AGAM Group. I spent a year living and working in Baltimore, but I felt it was time for a change of scenery, so I decided to leave and spend a year in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. It had always been a goal of mine to live in the mountains for an entire snowboard season. I worked at a ski and snowboard shop that winter and then as a landscaper that summer. My experience their helped me grow as a person, and provided a new perspective on life that has helped me in my career. I was then offered a position with Czarnowski Display Services in Denver which allowed me to stay in Colorado and close to the mountains. I have since taken an opportunity to be promoted and returned to my home town and recently started working for another exhibit design company called Exhibits and More in Victor. Looking forward I want to find a position that combines my various life and professional experiences and allows me to live in a location that provides me access to the outdoor activities of which I am passionate about.
My skills include the ability to communicate with the engineers and project managers to take their conceptualized ideas and make them a reality. I have always taken on a project and provided creative design solutions that can be effectively marketed to the consumer. My designs accomplish this while remaining within the budget and are finished promptly without ever missing a project deadline.
I know that working in this industry requires a team effort between all departments. I would be a vital member of the team and can work well with all personality types. For this reason, I would like my resume to be taken into consideration by your company. I can be reached by calling (585)217-6997 or emailing me @ dkes239@gmail.com. I appreciate your consideration of my employment and look forward to hearing from you.
