My name is Kay Mertens. 
I am a passionate toy designer with an interest in all things nerdy. I love finding extraordinary in the ordinary and creating magic in people's everyday lives. No matter what age range, my goal is to connect and inspire people through play.
I graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a Bachelors of Science in Industrial Design. I specialize in front-end ideation, research, concepting, sketching, IP development, materials and manufacturing.​​​​​​​

While I am actively seeking full-time employment, I am open to freelance work. Let's create something extraordinary together!
