TECHNICAL DESIGNER

Terrazign is a product design consultancy with expertise in textile integration. What we do is hard to describe because it varies everyday, and with every client. Our studio is our sketchbook, and we have a shop full of toys that you will learn to use. Our specialty is anything and everything that touches textile-based product design. But we like not to limit ourselves.

If you’re curious and driven (to the point of perfection) we’ll teach you everything we know about textiles and the methods we use for patterning and shaping fabric.

What’s Essential

Your design chops, a drive to try new things, and the curiosity to make products work; i.e. a keen sense of when a stack up is 0.5mm too thick is the key to killing it at Terrazign. Give us your bold competence and your knowhow—it’s the skills that you bring to the table combined with our expertise that helps Terrazign exceed beyond our client’s expectations.
