I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for I. G. who has worked as an industrial designer under my supervision for his first three years in Samsung Mobile. It takes a unique person to excel at a full time job at Samsung with 30 other highly talented designers. He stuck with us through massive growths in sales and was a part of Samsung becoming a top selling mobile company in the world. Most impressive to me has been Ian’s ability to eventually lead a project from start to finish. No one asked I. to volunteer or assume leadership roles with our production projects as well as taking a lead in concept creation. I. initiated all of this on his own from bringing a design concept to 3D model, 3D model to a production model, talk to vendors, prepare presentations for executives, and followed up to oversee the design of the product until the end of the manufacturing deadline. Most importantly, I highly value his ability to solve problems from ground zero, his attention to details, fabulous sketching skills both pen and digital, and 3D modeling and rendering execution. With his relentless motivation and knowledge of design, I. would bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to any small or large corporation.
