We welcome Brendon Vermillion – new Innovation Designer at Emballator Innovation CenterPosted 2022-04-19
What are your first impressions of Emballator?
”It’s a very forward-thinking and positive group of people. I’ve seen a lot of happy faces and that’s very nice when you are new at a workplace. I’ve also noticed that Emballator is a healthy environment and I’m really grateful for how friendly everyone has been.”
What is your primary role?
“I’m working with creating new designs and developing concepts that are out of the ordinary, for the purpose of really standing out in the industry. We are looking for hidden treasures and are working together towards creating exceptional value.”
Shortly, can you tell us about your background?
“I’ve worked with designing consumer products, strollers for example. My latest job was at a company that produces electric surfboards. I’ve worked not only with designing how products should function and look individually but also as families of products. I’ve been fortunate to work with great products and methods which makes it easy to believe in the product and the design. Every product must be necessary and offer real value.”
How would you describe yourself?
“I try to be aware and conscious in family as well as with my work, I’m an optimist, and I feel a responsibility to leave everything in better shape than it was before. I often think of commonly overlooked details and consider possible opportunities. I’m curious and enjoy small beginnings.”
Our values are important for us, which one or ones do you carry with you in your work?
“All of them are prominent values within our family and within my work… But mainly Courage and Profitability. My view on Profitability includes much more than just money – it can also be about how a team, for example my family, can be profitable together as a unit towards values such as joy and kindness.”
Finally, what are you doing in your spare time?
“I’ve got four children so of course a lot of time is spent with them, and I recently took a swing dancing course with my wife; so there’s always a risk in our kitchen of spontaneous Lindy Hop, jazz music, the dog barking, and laughter (all at the same time). When I get the chance, I like to build stuff for and with my family. I also like to exercise, renovate our house, and play guitar sometimes.”Back to news
