This was a short two week project to re-envision and re-position Braun in a different market segment. For this project I selected home illumination and lighting as a market that I believe Braun’s iconic style and attention to detail would lead them to success.

// INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER
From grinding away metal in the garage as a child, or lashing together pioneering poles as a Boy Scout I have always had a passion for building and creating. When I discovered design, the things I created took on a deeper meaning and began solving real world problems. As I learned about manufacturing and business it allowed my thoughts and visions to carry further than I could have ever achieved as an individual craftsman. Going forward my goal is to design and create corporate value by solving problems across all areas of the product design and manufacturing process.
