Sayyad Glassford

Industrial Designer
Product Development Consultant

I am a curious, collaborative, detail-oriented problem solver looking to apply my extensive practical and digital skills to your design opportunities.
I believe in the honest expression of materials through a contemporary and minimal aesthetic with the goal of creating accessible design.

I’ve always been interested in design, though I didn’t always know what it was called. Even as a young boy I was solving problems and making things better or easier to use, and that continues to this day. I spent my time at OCAD U honing my practical abilities with various materials such as wood, metal, and plastic, as well as developing the intellectual and critical side of my design skills. Further time in the field provided me with experience using various industry-standard design software packages.

I enjoy designing things that are useful and practical as well as beautiful. Ideally I would like to design objects that can be mass-produced, so that more people can experience the joys of good design. 


I would like to hear from you:
