Design of a Unique Gas Grill for Orion Outdoors

Fall 2019 Mechanical Engineering/Industrial Design Collaboration Studio

Team Members: Tiffany Roberts (Industrial Design), Chianne Connelly (Industrial Design),

Roberto Mendez (Mechanical Engineering), John Allen Dyer (Mechanical Engineering)

My Role in the Project:

In order to communicate between the two languages of the Industrial Designers and the Mechanical Engineers on the team, I acted as a liaison between the two disciplines and ensured that the steps of the creative design process were followed. I had to learn about mechanical engineering techniques and frameworks to be able to communicate better and design a product that functions. I was primarily responsible for the design of the overall form of the grill, and the functionality that it would provide.
