Room Update

August 12th, 2009 by

I just picked up a few things at Ikea to get my room a little bit more organized. I got this cool bookcase for $30 in the “as is sale scetion” instead of the usual $50 price and put a big curtain up in front of my closet since I took the closet doors down. It feels good to have everything in its place now, aka stuffed under the bed.

I just finished my chair “The Chalk Back” for the Mount baker Plywood Project last night. We had a create today consisting of several 4-7 year olds trying out our furniture. The problem for this project was to make some sort of educational furniture for the younger age bracket.

WWU ID trip to California

April 4th, 2009 by

I just got back from a great week long trip to San Diego and Los Angeles. I went with 30 other students in Western’s ID program to visit various design firms and museums. I’ve made a flickr account to showcase all of our adventures on the trip: WWUindustrialdesign flicker.


Coupon Book Back Cover

November 21st, 2008 by

I just completed this ad today! The previous ad had a bunch of pictures of the employees, which was good but had already been done, and the pictures included many of the previous student employees and hadn’t been updated in a long time. For this ad I wanted to put an emphasis on the student run aspect of the store, and the fact that we’re a non-profit organization so all of our revenues go back into the student body. So I took a picture of Mary a good friend of mine and fellow student worker at the bookstore. Along with the slogan “students working for students” Leigh Ann and I came up with 10 of the top reason why students should shop at our store. We went around the store asking people for their opinions of what they thought were the best reasons.

I found out today that I won the Swaile Design Technology for the Visually Impaired Scholarship, receiving $1,500.00 and another great addition to my portfolio, getting me that much closer to gaining entry into the Industrial Design program at Western. My professor, Jason Morris mentioned that my layout and interviews were key factors for my receiving the scholarship.

Shelters, in the wide sense of the word

March 19th, 2008 by

Our final project in 3D design was to make some sort of shelter whether it be literal or a play on the idea of shelter. In the spirit of spring I decided to make a butterfly inside of a cocoon. I used wire to make a frame, covered the wings with tissue paper, put a light inside, and used an organic looking cotton paper for the cocoon.
The rest of the pictures are of another student’s work which was a room made of tons of boxes, it was ridiculous. He even had a couple girls sitting on the couch inside the cardboard room just sitting on the couch the whole time. His project took up more than half the room, it was ridiculous! after the critique they ran through the walls of the room making all of the boxes fall all over the place, quite a scene.
