While at Enlisted Design, we were asked to design a wide array of future concepts for Samsung. As a Junior Designer I was asked to lead design for the controller and was responsible for concept sketching, paper prototyping, 3d Modeling, CMF, and final presentation renders. These concepts were then handed over to Samsung to be finalized and manufactured.
Whistle partnered with Enlisted Design to create the first device and app system to combine location-tracking and smart activity monitoring for pets into one simple experience. We tested a variety of attachment methods, starting with form and material studies to determine how to keep the device as small as possible and the materials durable. As a Junior Industrial Designer, I contributed in the ways of concept sketching, rough hand prototyping, 3D printing prototypes, CMF selection and 3D modeling.
While interning at Enlisted Design in Oakland for 5 months I had the amazing opportunity to work on Arlo, the world’s first and only 100% wire-free, weatherproof, rechargeable HD smart security camera with audio and 130° viewing angle. This project was hugely a group effort, I worked closely with both our design team and engineers from initial ideation to early refinement.
Under Armour Tempest
The UA Tempest baseball cleat is a four week personal project where I looked to bring a modern flair to a sport that's riddled with tired superstitions. The newest MLB players are looking to make a name for themselves similar to those of soccer players or basketball players. They want to have fun, and express themselves, all while being the best at what they do.
CNVRG Gym Bag
When I was 16 I was diagnosed with sleep apnea, and was given a CPAP machine. I went through four mask designs and a lot of hassle with my device. Eventually, I gave up using it entirely, a story that I found true for the majority of CPAP users. Aria is my vision to reinvent the CPAP machine experience for those struggling to get a good nights sleep.
Frank Ocean Bull & Matador
One of my favorite musicians, Frank Ocean, released one of the most highly anticipated albums in 2016 after a 4 year hiatus and I was really struck by the poetry and artistic visuals that he portrayed. In his song "Solo" he sings "There's a bull and a Matador dueling in the sky, inhale in hell that's heaven". After about 100 listens I had an urge to try and apply a more artistic and poetic approach to design. This project is the culmination of those thoughts.
Everlane Premium Snap Backpack
A 2 week personal project exploring the possibilities of Everlane branching out into the premium market. The final design features a contrast between neoprene and full grain leather with premium suede, metal, and leather touchpoints.
Enlisted Design partnered with a Highway1.io startup to create the Vytl brand. We created all assets needed for the product launch demo and for fundraising. These elements include naming systems, branding, packaging, industrial design, website, pitch presentations and brand guidelines. As an Industrial Design Intern I contributed on initial process from research to initial product experience and aesthetic development for Vytl.
