Description of Service Designer and Product Developer for artisan handcrafts, serving the cooperatives of artisans from all over the country. OCEPA, was the Ecuadorian Govenment's export arm and also opened retail stores in Cuenca, Quito, Buenos Aires, and installed design projects in Cali, Colombia. We promoted artisan crafts with a catalog for mail order to USA and Europe. We designed interiors of Ecuatoria Airlines aircraft. We promoted the work of the artisans at the World Craft Council's Convention in Lima Peru 1969.
Lessons Learned from Service It was one of the best experiences one could possibly have in life. The good and the bad, the lessons learned, the inspiration and perspective one can gain is immeasurable for sure. I would do it again, and indeed I may, if I can find the right program when I retire.
