Engineering a Halloween Costume

October 28, 2021 | Blog
Every year, Indesign, LLC has a fall festival. Traditionally, we have a company Halloween costume contest, office decoration contest, pumpkin carving contest, and trick-or-treating in the office for all family and friends. It is a lot of fun! One of my favorite parts is the giant black cat straddling the office wall. Sorry for the blower fan that ends up on your desk, Sydney. My son has always dressed up as a robot for Halloween (maybe he’ll grow up to be a nerd like me). My wife is a very creative person and makes costumes by hand with the kids, and one year I decided to help in the best way I knew how. I dusted off my old Arduino from back in the day when I wrote firmware for fun instead of for a living. I proudly used this same Arduino to demo one of my personal projects when I interviewed for a job. In this case, for Halloween, I programmed it to display a little Halloween greeting on an LCD. I also wired up some seven-segment LEDs to create a flashing message. Powered by a USB battery pack, it turned out pretty well, and he loved it! Don’t let the serious look on his face fool you. Trust me… he loved it. We made our rounds through the office, collecting way more candy than a responsible parent would allow. There are probably a hundred photos from the fall festival. Everyone always has a blast, and it’s fun to browse through photos of everyone that came and see all the kids’ costumes. After the fall festival at Indesign, we walked around the neighborhood. This is a great memory for me and my family and for the folks at Indesign. Mixing technology with Halloween is only natural for an embedded software engineer, and it made for an extra fun costume and hopefully an enjoyable blog. I’m thankful that I enjoy my job and that I was able to enhance the holiday for my son using the skills I use every day at Indesign. I hope it showed him and the other kids that engineering is fun and creative! Contact Us At Indesign, LLC, our team has the expertise, experience, and passion for engineering and design services.

Internships at Indesign, LLC

September 30, 2021 | Blog
Indesign,LLC's core asset is our people. We are not a company that makes and sells our own product or provides some niche service. We’re a group of individuals who work together as a close-knit team to bring our clients’ ideas to life. Indesign’s building, labs, and equipment are all important tools of the trade, but it’s the people who are the heart of our company. We believe this is one of the reasons we were voted as Indiana's Top Workplaces for the 11th consecutive year. It's the people of a company who create its culture. Culture can make a place special; it can create an environment that you want to go to and be around every day. Or it can make a place horrible. At Indesign, we’re very proud to have a culture of teamwork, integrity, respect, and excellence. We know that to maintain and grow that type of environment, we’ve got to continuously seek out people who thrive on variety and new ideas. That’s what makes our internship program so important.

Successful Product Development During the Global Chip Shortage

July 23, 2021 | Blog
Almost everyone has heard about the parts shortage that is currently affecting the global supply chain for semiconductors. In the past, news of a microchip shortage wouldn’t make much of a splash on national news, but the current situation is unprecedented. The lead time on some parts is more than a year (and even longer in some cases). Distributors and contract manufacturers are scrambling to get customers the parts that they need, but sometimes they simply are not available and an alternative solution is the only path forward. At Indesign, LLC, we’ve adapted quickly to ensure that our clients’ product designs can move to full production despite the parts shortage. (more…)
