Iron Ingenuity

Iron Ingenuity is a young company that creates custom metal home decor. The company has a small team, meaning that each member must be versatile. During my time as a summer intern, I helped with many aspects of design and fabrication. I interpreted design briefs for custom projects and designed proofs using the Adobe Creative Suite before migrating files to DesignEdge, the proprietary software for the in-house CNC plasma cutter. I also operated the plasma cutter, fabricated, and painted projects in the shop while monitoring material supplies and maintaining tools.

The following is a selection of projects I worked on:
