Product / Packaging Design
Industrial Designer + Craftsman
James Reed Design
Ohio-born, New York City-based designer James Reed creates intentional, elegant designs with an emphasis on minimalism. At the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), he studied Industrial Design with a concentration in Nature, Culture, and Sustainability (NCSS), where his unique expression not only flourished but also took form.
For James, Product + Industrial Design is a purposeful, cosmic balancing, a fusion of art and design, regarding both how it's constructed and how it's conceived. Driven to achieve products that are refreshing with purpose, yet demonstrate style and durability. "Design, like anything else, is based on one’s definition. The question, therefore, isn't what is design, but what design can be? Through radical collaboration and team efforts, I believe some of the most revolutionary ideas can be realized by boundary breaking questions like this."
