My experience in the InnovationSpace program at Arizona State University gave me a working knowledge of product design, branding, and development. The program also taught extensively about biomimicry, the concept of applying strategies found in nature to solve complex design problems in a way that is conducive to life. This knowledge was applied in the design and development of a product used in the healthcare environment sponsored by Herman Miller. This experience of designing with a group of Industrial Designers, Engineers, and Business students gave me insight to working and meeting deadlines in a dynamic multidisciplinary team environment.
