Justin Sirotin has spent his 17 year Industrial Design career developing successful products for multinational brands and start-ups alike. In working with clients as diverse as Dorel Juvenile Group, Focal Upright Furniture, Johnson & Johnson, Titleist, and Hexagon Metrology, Justin has developed a unique perspective on the complete process for developing products in a wide array of product categories.

In 2007 Justin co-founded Mars Made, a modern game table furniture company designing and manufacturing built-to-order pool tables, foosball tables, and other classic games in Pawtucket, RI.
