Hacked Design - Charrette

Every year the ID department at UArts has a charrette: a three day event where all the ID students are split into groups and design around a given topic. My group had two seniors, Brian Kelly and Eric Welch, one junior, and two other sophomores. Our topic was hacked design/ Design optimization.

Working from 9am through 4 in the morning for three days with a group of people I had never met before was a challenge. But don't think I've ever learned more about design in as short a period before. The seniors taught me a lot about design process and how to work under so short a deadline. The three "Do-it-yourself" products that we came up with (shown above) are very cool; the pdf has all the details. As a team we're in the process of patenting and marketing our ideas. Hopefully you will be seeing some of them soon.

Hey Jesse, will you link to me on this if you see this. I probably won't remember to remind you.
