Looking for a industrial/mechanical designer in the New York metro area to tweak the functionality and design the final form of a patent-pending personal accessory I have created. In addition, the designer will assist in determining materials in light of function, material and production costs.
Important considerations are of course, strong CAD skills, familiarity with designing consumer accessories with an eye to ergonomics and ease of use and aesthetics, familiarity with working with multiple materials and estimating relative production costs using various materials and production methods.
The product fits in the hand, it will include at least two materials and has a simple mechanical element. The exact use of this product and details will be revealed to the freelancers I interview after signing an NDA.
