Product development skills

Product development provides a framework to minimise risk when designing for innovation.


3D modelling and visualizing

Solidworks (+ Autocad Fusion 360)

Very good if I know exactly what has to be made.


Blender

Used since high-school. Mostly for rendering and concept explorations.


2D prototyping and visualizing

Adobe suit

Familiarity by having used it's applications throughout my studies.


Affinity suit

Once you've used multiple software that serve the same function, they become much easier to learn and adapt to.

Using the combined power of multiple open-source applications to visualize ideas beautifully yet swiftly.
