Limited Brands - Bath and Body Works, Reynoldsburg, OH, US ; New York, New York, Technical Designer

I previously worked at Bath and Body Works as a contractor providing technical design support for seasonal collections. This includes working with multiple projects on an ongoing basis through Adobe Illustrator, and assisting with sketch ideation, brand identity, trend research, and documentation for each season. My department concentrated on candle decor and sleeves manufactured from stamped and/or cast metal. In my department we are required to design and carefully align these decorative 2d and 3d metal patterns for hidden welding and evenly spaced pattern repetition. These vary from geometric patterns to organic patterns. Summary: Make the product work, make it breathe, and make it beautiful.
