Daniel Lear

Boston, MA, US



I am an enthusiastic and creative designer that thrives in a collaborative environment, participating in projects that push the boundaries of social, economical, and environmental perceptions. I seek to find an organization that compliments the excitement and ambition I have for creating beautiful design solutions. I am passionate about discovering innovative ways to unite advanced technologies with passive design strategies to create sustainable, alluring, and socio-economically relevant solutions for real world problems. As such, I dedicate much of my time as a Project Manager | CAD Director at the Janet Echelman Studio towards restructuring the studio’s approach to 3D visualization and conceptual design while endeavoring to incorporate sustainable and/or innovative technologies such as piezoelectric fibers, 3M reflective light films, & photo-luminescent textiles.
