IDBoost is an experiment. I’ve played around with the idea of starting a blog that covers educational resources for industrial designers for a while, so on July 17th, 2007, I finally acted on it. We’ll see where it goes…

About me:
Bio from my portfolio website ( ):
I (Dustin Brown) am currently a senior industrial designer with Ignition, Inc. in Dallas, Texas. I lead design efforts on a wide range of projects at Ignition, but focus primarily on consumer electronics and business products, and spearhead 3D visualization efforts within the design group. I also maintain an active freelance practice, providing industrial design and visualization services to a number of additional clients. In these and other positions, I have completed work for such companies as Dell, Oral-B, Texas Instruments, Alcatel, and Nextlink. In 2006, I launched an instructional DVD with The Gnomon Workshop that covered lighting and rendering in Alias StudioTools (now Autodesk AliasStudio). As a speaker, I have presented at Alias’ 3December and the IDSA National Conference and given seminars on industrial design rendering in Maya and AliasStudio. Prior to joining Ignition, I was with the Strategic Design Group of electronics maker Uniden and Lunar Design in San Francisco. I hold a B.S. in Industrial Design from Arizona State University.
