Meet our Senior Product Strategist, Ryan! #MeetMako

What is #MeetMako?

For this week’s #MeetMako blog feature, let’s introduce MAKO Design + Invent’s Senior Product Strategist, Ryan! As a Product Design Firm, we interact with our clients on a very close basis in order to be very transparent about the design process and the development of an inventor’s product.

We are a team of positive, friendly and happy people who are excited and passionate about design, growth and learning about new ideas and concepts every day! With three current open offices, each of the members in each office carries a unique and special persona that adds to the amazing quality of what makes MAKO Design + Invent so great.

We started the #MeetMako campaign to allow clients and future clients who are interested in working with us to learn more about who we are and who you’ll be working with! This campaign also serves as a great resource to learn about who will be helping you produce and develop your product and introduce to you a little more about MAKO Design + Invent, what it’s like to work here and about the office culture!

Check out last week’s #MeetMako, where we introduced our office coordinator, Helen.
