​Work Samples

The following are just a few samples of past work.  Several examples of project/product documentation are not available for proprietary and confidentiality reasons.  These include, but are not limited to: BOM's, work scopes, engineering test reports, project schedules, and detailed concept presentations.

Production Drawing

Production Drawing

Developing ASME-compliant manufacturing drawings for everything from parts to detailed assemblies. Practiced and trained in GD&T. (image details blurred)

Market Research

Market Research

Evaluating and comparing storefront displays, part of research to understand buyer and retailer habits, associations, and brand presentation. A key takeaway was that kitchen brushes visually look, and are sometimes sold, alongside lavatory brushes.

Testing

Testing

Conducting variety of tests for operational, environmental, and design improvement purposes. Experience with numerous MIL-STD tests, IP and NEMA ratings.

Test Fixture Design

Test Fixture Design

Design and construction of an innovative, positionable test fixture using custom-fabricated parts and 80/20 framing.

FEA Analysis

FEA Analysis

Nothing beats textbook paper and pencil, but once in a while a simulation or parametric study can expedite a redesign or validate test results.

Packaging Design

Packaging Design

Commercial packaging design crafted with assistance from Daedalus Excel.

PCB Integration

PCB Integration

Integrating PCB's into complex assemblies using standard interconnects, battery packs, PEM hardware, and other modules.

Part Tooling

Part Tooling

Working closely with a plastics manufacturer, a family tooling die was constructed and refined through mold and process changes to reduce sinking, eliminate porosity, and maintain part appearance.

Sales Sheet

Sales Sheet

This is an example retail sales sheet that was generated to showcase the product and to illustrate the commercial appeal and product features.

Sketches

Sketches

Some hand sketches during the initial packaging design. Inspiration derived from classic 1950's colors, patterns, and pop figures (Bernie Brewer shown).

Concept Presentation

Concept Presentation

Concepts were generated for a wildlife refuge river barrier. This sketch and rendering supplemented a written synopsis.

The homebrew hobby has also stirred some extra branding / graphic design amusement:  Bottle Label Art
