Don’t we all occasionally wonder how our trash evolves once we’ve tossed it into the rubbish heap? Imagine seeing the future life of each banana peel, magazine, and apple core you pitched.
The See-Through Compost Container was dreamed up by Nancy Balter and my task was to bring it to life. I worked with artist Matt Mance along with our factory’s sculptors to translate Nancy’s idea into physical form. The product is a sectioned plastic “box” with three compartments. Children and teachers fill each of the compartments up with soil, water, or sand and watch their trash degrade.

Product Design Direction: Solder Pins
The Learn to Solder Pins are simple soldering activity kits that teach basic soldering skills, awarding the consumer with a working, blinking, wearable pin once complete. John Viet-Triet Nguyen illustrated these based on sketches for our launch at Maker Faire Bay Area in 2014. It was such a treat to see kids and adults alike wearing their proud badges of accomplishment!
