I interned at Nottingham-Spirk Design Associates from May to August of 2011. While there, I worked on various clients’ projects, including (briefly) BTE, Infusion Brands, and Delphinus Medical. Several of the projects are nearing commercial release, and my responsibilities ranged from very minor conceptual input to ergonomics testing to project lead. Probably the most noteworthy project involved a doubly-eccentric cam mechanism that was quite similar to a crankshaft. Though I left NS before that particular project was completed, while I was there, I had primary responsibility for both reworking the design provided to us by an external contractor (due to binding issues in the cam mechanism) and manufacturing the prototype.
