Designer / In the 70's Michigan Seat was the largest seat manufacturing for lawn and garden seats They produced for all the big names such as John Deere, Simplicity, WheelHorse , Murray, DitchWitch, Clarks, MTD, Yardman on and on. At the time I model the seats in hard clay.
Tier one supplier to the big three, Interior design and urethane foam in place parts such as door panels, Instrument panels, head rests, center consoles, etc. worked in the design group wearing many hats from prototyping parts to following projects and some black box design.
Had to try it on my own, 10 year experience. Made many contacts within automotive and new ones outside of automotive, Provided conceptual designs to clients, renders. Also worked with video and audio production for some clients. Great learning experience .
Packaging. Probably best job I've ever had. We get to work with all the big companies and smaller ones too. Our design group works directly with clients to provide direction in design. Within our R&D center we also have engineering and FEA teams to support our projects so we are very well equipped to handle any rigid packaging project.
