Wentworth Institute of Technology's Industrial Design degree required students to complete two co-op semesters at a company of our choice that would offer us an invaluable hands-on experience in the field. For my first co-op I was selected to work with the Boys’ Design team at Hasbro, Inc.
This experience both strengthened my design capabilities and my ability to work in a results-driven team environment. It also proved to be highly instrumental; enough to make the relationship continue through my second semester. During both of my co-op semesters I had the pleasure of working on projects for the Transformers franchise.
My collaboration with Hasbro, Inc. has extended beyond the two co-op semesters. Since January 2011, I have continued to contribute to numerous team projects with the Boys’ Design team as a Freelance Product Designer.
