About Our Business
Designforce was established by Dan Hahn in 1983 to provide Industrial Design and Graphic
Design services. Dan started his design career at AMF Wheel Goods - Roadmaster
Corporation in 1975 as a staff designer. While at Roadmaster Dan was exposed to a multitude
of manufacturing processes including injection and blow molding of plastic materials, and
bending, forming, and stamping of metal sheet and tubing. Industrial Designers at
AMF/Roadmaster were responsible for product development from concept through pilot
production. The projects Dan worked on ranged from mopeds to children's tricycles and
ride-ons and included a variety of products in the fitness equipment category. Extensive work
with product graphics and packaging was also required. Dan left Roadmaster after eight
years in 1983 as a senior designer, then continued working with Roadmaster as a consultant.
