Dear IDEO Recruiting,
My name is Lucas Van Dyke, and I am a passionate, outgoing, and optimistic Industrial Designer with a high level of energy and proficiency in all facets of the design process.
During my time obtaining my Bachelor of and Master of Industrial Design degrees at North Carolina State University’s College of Design I have gained an extensive understanding of problem identification, consumer research, solution development, and working as a part of interdisciplinary teams. These tools allow me to contribute to IDEO as an intentional, human centered Product Designer.
In addition to my continually growing proficiency in the technical aspects of Product Design, I have strong attention to detail and also have strong organizational skills, which allow me to manage multiple projects in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment. I have ample experience producing graphic presentations and communicating my design direction and concepts to any size audience. I hold a deep respect and alertness of past well-designed products, packaging, and branding, which gives me the awareness and responsiveness to capitalize through the growth and development of future products, services, and businesses. I also enjoy working as part of interdisciplinary teams, in which I am able to effectively navigate and work with a variety of personalities and disciplines.
Throughout my collaborative experiences, I have developed into a strong team player and at times have even had the opportunity to act as a mentor to fellow team members. I am always open to the inputs of others, and can implement feedback and critique readily. I have the ability to change the design vision and direction quickly capable of meeting deadlines. With my desire to continue obtaining knowledge and skill through a collaborative opportunity, working for IDEO would be an ideal experience, where my background in Industrial Design would unite with my cross-disciplinary teamwork exposure.
Thank you for your consideration.
Design Specialties: Concept development, product analysis, problem identification, ideation, hand / digital sketching, 3D modeling (Alias), branding identity, prototyping, model making, presentation construction and delivery.
