Across 5 trips to China, I was lucky to be fully responsible for Igloo's 2017 Welded Line. In addition to design, I wore many hats for this project. They include project management, sourcing, engineering, and learning specific material science. Developed a new manufacturing technique to weld an injection molded base to a softside bag, which had never been done before. The Igloo Welded Line is a 100% waterproof, durable, softside cooler collection. Created as an affordable "best" product for the outdoor enthusiast. Winner, Best in Show, 2016 Outdoor Retailer Show.
