industrial design portland david lewin

David Lewin knows what it takes to make great product. To make it successful, you need to think differently.

His inspiration began as a boy riding his BMX through the post-industrial landscape of New Haven, Connecticut.  That’s where he discovered what Made in the USA means on a very personal level. The son of an immigrant tool maker, his exposure to manufacturing ignited a lifetime of wonder about, “who are the people behind the ideas?”

David’s creative process became reinforced with a successful course of study and Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI.

Since then, David has enjoyed a gratifying corporate and independent career as an industrial designer. To his clients, he offers hands-on, problem solving expertise to the world of product design.

With over 20 years in the industry, David delivers a unique approach and perspective to creating successful products. His portfolio spans everything from personal electronics, tools, optics, cutlery, flashlights, transportation, bags, apparel, furniture, medical equipment, classified military projects, footwear (ranging from Athletic, Casual, Work, Children’s, Outdoor, Football/Baseball Cleated, Skateboarding, BMX, Running, Triathlon, Cycling, etc.). He is a seasoned problem solver who can design nearly anything in need of innovation.

On the weekend, David drives his ’67 Impala or ’65 Bel Air station wagon through the spacious highways and byways of the Northwest with his wife and daughter. During the week, he prefers to wear his latest shoe design while walking to work.

You can find David drawing great ideas in his office located in the historic Ford Building in the Central Eastside Industrial District of Portland, Oregon.
