You have ideas.
I design products.

Hey! I'm Brennan, a human-shaped machine that turns ideas into gorgeous objects

Mechanical design by schooling and product design by trade I've been 3D modelling and rendering for nearly a decade; a craftsman of both digital and physical tools.

Hardware startups are bigger than ever, and it's never been easier to manufacture products. Let's develop your ideas into reality.

Here's something of a manifesto I've grown into:

Users come first. I want to design the best possible solution to whatever the actual real-life human's problems are.

Good design needs to be feasible. It's shockingly easy to 3D model impossible-to-manufacture objects. I bring experience and quality so you can go to factories without needing a ton of revisions.

Complete transparency. Quotes per project, so you're allowed to ask as many questions and feel completely comfortable with not being on some hourly clock. Typical projects are $2000-8000 and 2-4 weeks.

I'm here for you. We're both humans trying to make the best things we can together. Let's collaborate.
