Hello, my name is Steven Bateman. I am an Industrial Designer living in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, Ireland. From Carlow originally, I completed my Degree in Industrial Design from Carlow IT in 2006.
Industrial design, or product design, is essentially where art meets engineering. The key to good product design is making things work well AND look good, in that order. Aesthetics isn't all about the visual, it's much more than that. It's about complete user experience and is important in making user-friendly products that appeal to our senses.
I also do graphic design and portraits. If you would like a portrait of yourself, a friend, or a relative drawn up by hand, in pen or pencil, please feel free to contact me.
