Qualified Senior Industrial / Toy Designers must be able to sketch concepts and have a full understanding of product construction / manufacturing - reverse engineering a plastic toy, for example.

• Proficiency with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and 3D software programs (such as Fusion 360, KeyShot, Rhino, SolidWorks, CAD, etc.)

Senior Industrial / Toy Designer Responsibilities
• Develop new and groundbreaking concepts for products within the Family Sporting Goods, Table Game and Toy/Games industry
• Evaluate the feasibility of design ideas specifically on factors such as safety, aesthetics, serviceability, budget, function, production costs, market characteristic etc.
• Provide product managers with all necessary information including spec sheets, exploded views and packaging cost drawings
• Prepare sketches of detailed drawings, ideas, artwork, illustration, blueprints by hand drawing, drafting instruments and computer-aided design software (likely Illustrator)
• Work with their in-house Asia team as well as outside vendors in the fabrication of samples or models
• Understand and study current design trends within social media and pop culture to keep the company’s ideas fresh and new

This is a full-time Senior Industrial / Toy Designer opportunity ideally onsite 5 days/week in NJ (not easily commutable by public transportation). Relocation is offered.
