Hello and welcome to my portfolio website. My name is Lee Oddy.
Within this site you will find various projects that I designed throughout university, my professional career and for personal interests.
I have always been passionate about design, even before I knew what Industrial Design was. Since childhood, I have enjoyed creating new concepts and solutions, along with the challenge of turning those concepts into a physical reality. Not only did I enjoy attending Carleton University, but it also helped me to build on my previous skills in several areas including modeling and prototype building, ideation, and photography. In addition to this, my degree in industrial Design provided me with new skills such as 3D modeling and graphic design.
I have many hobbies and interests that contribute to my pursuit in product design. Some of these hobbies include outdoor sports, extreme sports, woodworking, metalworking, recreational vehicles, and various artistic outlets. These personal interests have improved my ability to think critically, problem solve, and find difficult solutions across disciplines.
Please browse through the “projects” section to get a better idea of the scope of my abilities.
Thank you and enjoy!
