David Pearce has always been a builder, maker, and designer, but these interests only merged into his career relatively recently. His inspiration to create is driven by a deep curiosity about the impact the fabrication process has on an object. He believes that great design and great products can only come from a great process. David begins his design process by thinking about how his current tools and methods can be used or modified to create something in a new or better way. Once he's identified a promising design through prototyping, he tries a test run of manufacturing. Based on those results, he continues to refine his design and fabrication process until he's reached a superior result.
