Hi —

I am Taehoon Park, an industrial designer with 5+ years of experience in product development.

Throughout the design process, I challenge myself to think critically and have a questioning mindset and an openness to new ideas. During the ideation, I enjoy sharing very rough and sometimes absurd ideas. I experienced many times that this behavior helps inspire others to think outside of box and it could lead to discovering new and innovative solutions.

Effective communication is my top priority in a team setting. I believe that clear and consistent communication helps to streamline the design process, align the team's goals and objectives, and ultimately produce the best possible outcome.

As a designer, I always seek opportunities to expand my knowledge and improve my craft. This means staying on current industry trends, analyzing existing market products, and studying their design and manufacturing processes in order to identify areas for improvement.

In my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with my wife, participating in outdoor activities such as golf and snowboarding, and exploring new good coffee places.
