    While creating beautiful, functional Solidworks CAD designs forms the basis of my work, I like to take things a step further. As an experienced systems engineer in the aerospace industry, I'm also skilled at helping clients to develop excellent requirements for the products. This helps to ensure that the end product matches their vision. Optionally, I also provide services involving EAGLE (Circuit & PCB design) and Matlab (System simulation and modeling). I love finding unique ways to combine aesthetics with form and function. There is plenty of creativity to be found within the scope of a design!

    I can facilitate all aspects of producing buildings plans necessary to obtain the permit. DESIGN: My creativity and thorough approach will help you whether you have a clear idea of what you want your house to be OR you only have a few elements you know you want but otherwise you are open and want ideas presented to you. In both cases I start with an interview to get to know what your after even if you do not think you know. I am a good interviewer and listener. DRAFTING - Produce Autocad drawings to the standards of the City you are building in. PERMIT - Obtaining the permit is a whole lot more than just filling out an application. There is an ever-growing list of forms and other requirements as well as several trips to the building dept to submit or pickup the plans and distribute comments. I can handle all this busy work so you don't have to give it a thought. TITLE 24 - these State required Energy Calculations have become increasingly complex over the past 2 years that can cost you more money than you need to spend but you will never know. I work with professionals who deliver a highly efficient and cost effective energy design. ENGINEERING - These guys are expensive and are key in whether the construction process goes well or makes life miserable for your General Contractor and cost you un-necessary dollars with grossly over-kill designs. I can refer you several Structural Engineers to interview and receive their bid if you wish. I enjoy the process and satisfaction I get from giving people insights into what features will keep delighting them for years. For a growing number of others its a sideline income and need an understanding of current and enduring trends that enhance and subtract value. Many of my clients become personal friends.

    There are a number of other great firms out there doing an amazing job, but to provide the horsepower of a bigger firm at the price point that I can provide takes an edge, and that edge is the 3d software Revit. This program builds the drawings as you design and also understands what the materials are that you are using, streamlining the construction documentation process. This is not an easy program to learn, much less master, and all firms, big or small now want to be on it, but with us, you get the mastery as well as the most experienced person doing the work. I got into this business because I was an artist that grew up working construction with my General Contractor father, so the fit was perfect.

Industrial Design & Product

(12 reviews)

Daniel Adamian is a passionate designer specializing in sketching, modelling, and building prototypes. He especially works with start-up businesses, helping them turn their ideas into realities. Daniel listens intently to what his customers desire and helps them achieve these goals.

His clients include specializer ChooMee, Kore Essentials, Dipper Brotherhood, and Szent. Being a freelancer, he makes it a point to meet with various types of clients and listens to their ideas so he can learn what's in their minds and turn them into a successful and meaningful product.

My favorite [project] has been ChooMee Sip'n. It is a baby product parents are nuts about and babies love! Not having a family, the pitch for the product went over my head, but that is what I love about design. It is always exciting to see parents light up when they realize there is a product to ease their parenting troubles.

You don't need to reinvent your products to be successful. Sometimes you just need to be passionate and creative, with a twist of smart marketing strategy. Let Daniel Adamian help you with this.

    Mark W.

    In the end Daniel delivered four professionally designed CAD drawings showing the assembly of a multicomponent toy. Daniel did a good job staying in contact through email, and was even willing to meet a few extra times to discuss final details. Daniel was pleasant to work, his price for the job was very fair, and he was flexible to work around my schedule. Recommend.
