What is #MeetMako?

As a Product Design Firm, here at Mako Design and Invent we interact with our clients on 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 all carry a unique and special persona that adds to the amazing quality of what makes Mako Design and 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 who Mako Design and Invent is, what it’s like to work here and about the office culture! Last week we introduced our industrial designer, Paul. For this week, let’s meet our mechanical engineer at Mako Design and Invent, Demsey Kirkwood!

Meet Demsey!

As a mechanical designer at Mako Design and Invent, Demseys carries one of the most important roles when it comes to creating our client’s inventions. His main responsibilities are to ensure that for every product design we work on here have all the parts and details they need, and that the products function the way that clients and industrial designers want. Demseys role is especially important as a mechanical engineer at Mako Design and Invent because he works collaboratively with the industrial designers to understand how both the form and function will work together in order to make each clients product work well. Demsey emphasizes that one of most important things needed when designing is to have a clearly defined problem. This makes it so that that team at Mako can easily work with the client to help and solve that problem and product a great result.

Being a Mechanical Engineer At Mako Design and Invent

Demsey shares that some of his favorite things about what he does working here as the mechanical engineer at Mako Design and Invent is the getting to the prototype phase with a client’s product design and having the first opportunity to get to see the physical form of their invention. Demsey explains that because he loves to make things and see clients move from the prototype phase to production, he constantly feels motivated whilst working here at Mako. The variety of work, product and industries that Demsey gets to work on every day here is what he loves about coming into work everyday and that each day presents some new.
