Freelancing with Tactile
I spent about 2 years doing freelance design work and during that time one of my clients was a Seattle based designed studio, Tactile. I was brought on to assist Tactile with constructing three looks like/works like prototypes for their Foot Scanner project that consisted of machined wood and metal parts, sensitive optical electronics, and bent tubing. I worked closely with the team’s resident mechanical engineer to send out RFQs, order custom components, and make sure that all necessary parts arrived on time. I was also responsible for careful assembly and packaging of the prototypes in a timely fashion for delivery to Tactile’s client. I also performed extensive research into volume manufacturing methods to help inform the Tactile engineering team for a pitch they presented to a large client they were pitching.
