Brandon Leedy is a Designer. An Industrial Designer by trade.
His aim is to make products that are worth remembering.
As the lead designer for Stress Engineering Inc, I work with their wide range of international clients creating beautiful industrial design that works. I specialize in industrial design, but I'm also experienced in branding, packaging, and user interface design. Occasionally I take on outside freelance clients for fun and profit, in areas of design I don't get to explore at my day job. Currently, I have two such clients, with room for one more. Design is something I truly love. If you're looking for a passionate designer who has an attention to detail, and the ability to design products that work, then we should talk.
Note: Recently I have incorporated my once-hobbies of hand-lettering and illustration into my work for a select number of clients, to great success. While I am not pursuing clients directly for those skills, if you are looking for a unique approach to your product branding or packaging, let me know.
In June of 2011, I graduated from the University of Cincinnati, College of DAAP, with a B.S. in Industrial Design. After graduation in June, I worked at Stress Engineering Services as a part of their Innovation Group on a full-time contract basis, and was hired full-time shortly after. The Stress Innovation Group is a collective of designers, engineers, and specialists focused on creating products that are not only beautiful, but functional to the highest degree. In June of 2012, I began taking on my own freelance clients for fun and profit.
In May 2011, my graduating thesis, Common//Wealth, received the IDSA Midwest Bronze Award. It uses a system of mobile apps and a web service which helps creative workers share inspiration and collaborate on projects. It was designed in collaboration with my long-time best friend and fellow designer, Kyle A Koch.
In January 2011, my design for the "Eco-Easy Button" was selected as a finalist in the Global Staples Eco Easy Challenge. And in April, that concept won the global grand prize of $25,000. It is now in development and has a patent pending, which I hold.
Past employment includes designing products at Frontgate, where I was able to have a number of high end products reach the market. Many of those products received great reviews and some are still available for purchase today. Prior to that, my work has been in Consumer Experience, Point of Purchase, and Specialty Packaging for Rock-Tenn, in partnership with P&G.
