I redesigned an existing product, improving it's function. When I went to the store to have my prototype built, I was told it couldn't be done. I showed them my blueprint, how it functions, and they wanted me to bring in the props that brings the prototype to life. I brought in a few of the props. I needed it for my art display. They said it would take two weeks, it ended up being a month and two weeks, this after I had to modify my design and push for my product to be built my way.
They took my prototype and copied it exactly and is selling it in their store after on employee in the framing department who is suppose to be an artist said it was his project.
This was my design. My Design. My Design.
