The Nancy B's Science Club line of products was created by a real, breathing scientist on our product team, Nancy Balter.
This product line is made up of attractive science tools and full color keepsake activity journals that girls use to explore and record the fascinating world around them.
Role: product industrial design direction, packaging art direction, digital eCommerce design and writing, and photographic art direction. I was also lucky enough to participate in the product naming efforts.

The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game
This preschool game was born out of a trip to Tokyo, where I saw a multitude of training chopsticks for children. The idea of using chopsticks as the centerpiece of a game grew into the Squirrel Squeezers, which encourage children to harvest acorns while practicing their fine motor skills. I sketched a tree-shaped box and worked with the factory to develop this hand-wrapped, fully illustrated package that doubles as the game board.
