I’m an industrial designer living in San Francisco, CA. I currently work in the Play Lab at IDEO. Previously, I was a designer at Little Tikes. I am a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University’s Industrial Design program.
Handcrafted wooden toys of recently extinct animals. I selected these four creatures for their beautiful shapes and patterns. Choosing an anthropomorphic approach, I designed them with simplified, humanistic shapes and statures. Once unfolded, the packaging becomes an information graphic about the animal inside. These toys are meant to incite wonder and interest in creatures that existed only a short while ago. Honorable mention winner in I.D. magazine's 2010 annual design review student category. 2009.
