I have been in the design industry for over 25 years, starting out as a graphic designer with an emphasis on brand identity, advertising, packaging, and cross promotional marketing.
During that time I began to study and practice Industrial Design and 3D Modeling, helping design and develop,, several successful brands.
I founded Figurehead Design in 2000 offering Product Design, 3D Modeling, Design Visualization, Packaging and Graphic Design.
I work remotely with both large and small companies throughout the United States maintaining a passion for design, a strong work ethic and an internal motivation to succeed.
I look forward to working with you!
Russell S. Mims | Owner/Designer
“Russell is a full stack creative professional that brings a unique and greatly valued vision to projects we’ve worked on together. His attention to detail and ability to collaborate on solutions for our clients have elevated our pitches for retail packaging, displays, and environments. I’ve yet to feel like the ask is too high, or the challenges at hand too great.”
Steve Hermosillo – Chief Creative Officer at Advoque/Mosaic
“We’ve worked with Russ on a number of projects and found him not only to be a great product designer but a welcome and able collaborator as well. In addition to our first released product which drew rave reviews from our customers at our last trade show, we will be using him on all of our future product concepts. He’s not only the best designer that we’ve used but is also the easiest to work with.”
Ken Geizler – President at Keri Systems
“Its rare to find someone with such a high caliber of talent as Russ. I had the pleasure of meeting him when we subcontracted him for a few design projects at The CDM Company. Our assignments are usually crash and burn which makes it challenging for any designer but I’m constantly impressed at his ability to deliver innovative creative designs within days. In addition, he is extremely reliable and always responsive. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs creative services. You will not be disappointed.”
