Right now I’m in the process of revamping my portfolio. I took out some projects and even added a few. I’m currently in the process of revisiting a personal project that I’ve worked on while at Soulcake. It was a rebranding exercise, and I chose to rebrand Hoover.

This project ended with a polished sketch, but I wasn’t confident in my CAD skills in 2014. I’ve learned much since then and have been using this project as a way to learn Solidworks. It has been an interesting challenge going from Creo to Solidworks. A lot of the fundamentals are the same, but the interfaces are different.

I had a critique about this project recently and I’m in the process of a redesigning this vacuum cleaner. I did some additional research and have a better idea of how this vacuum cleaner will fit into the marketplace and the audience for this design. The next step will be to do some ideation and update this design for 2019.
