Lucas Van Dyke


My name is Lucas Van Dyke, and I am a passionate, outgoing, and optimistic Industrial Designer with a high level of energy and proficiency in all facets of the design process. During my time as an Industrial Designer after obtaining my Bachelor of and Master of Industrial Design degrees at North Carolina State University’s College of Design, I have gained an extensive understanding of problem identification, consumer research, solution development, and working as a part of multidisciplinary teams. These tools allow me to contribute to companies as an intentional, human centered Product Designer. In addition to my continually growing proficiency in the technical aspects of Product Design, I have a strong attention to detail and strong organizational skills, which allow me to manage multiple projects in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment. I have ample experience producing graphic presentations and communicating my design concepts and direction to any size audience. I hold a deep respect and alertness of all well-designed products, packaging, and branding, which gives me the awareness and responsiveness to capitalize through the growth and development of future products, services, and businesses. I also enjoy working as part of interdisciplinary teams, in which I am able to effectively navigate and work with a variety of personalities and disciplines. Throughout my collaborative experiences, I have developed into a strong team player, being always open to the inputs of others, and can implement feedback and critique readily. Working for an in-house design department would be an ideal experience, where my background in Industrial Design would unite with my cross-disciplinary team work-style.
