Introducing Stephen Lindamood
Stephen Lindamood is a recipient of both undergraduate and master’s degrees from the department of Industrial Design at Virginia Tech. As a graduate student, he researched how recent advances in technology are reshaping and enhancing the role of the industrial designer. By investigating and exploring themes of personal augmentation in science fiction, his thesis explored the conceptualization of a “soft” wearable garment system for runners that utilizes developing advancements in technology, apparel and graphical user interface.
Since the completion of his master’s degree Stephen has worked with Modea, a digital advertising agency, and Ozmo, a virtual device support company. These roles enabled him to develop not only specific industry experience, but also a valuable and transferable skill set in these fast-paced sectors. While at Ozmo’s Content Development department, he continued to hone his skills by creating digital products for Verizon and other international telecom companies.
“Stephen is an exceptionally talented designer,” says Ty Hagler, the company principal and founder. “He has become the driving force behind many of the digital and interactive client projects we run with Trig’s Brand Asset Management team. Stephen has brought new talents to our team from his master’s work and digital industry experience to find new applications of technology in the industrial design field. Clients such as VitalFlo and OSSI have already benefited from his talents - we look forward to his continued exploration of new technologies and their impact for our clients.”
