A very rapid growth area, where electronics are being incorporated to anything from T-shirts to sailing boats. Electronics developments are fast and I endeavour to keep up with new developments that can be applied to the products I design.
My expertise allows me to work in conjunction with electronics engineers. I understand their work and we work in parallel with me designing the mechanical aspects of the electronic components. Constant 3 way communication Client-Designer-Electronics engineer is essential.
My work on the electronics, as a designer, is to determine the functions that the electronic parts should have for the product performance, their size and configuration within the product shape and design, their protection against damage and assembly within the product.
I have gained substantial experience designing several types of electronic products.
