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!
Chet the Cat™ and Friends Identity and Development
Integrated art and design direction across product, social, eCommerce, and retail channels. The Chet the Cat™ and Friends line of preschool toy play sets marries quirky, playful illustrations with beautiful melamine. Inspired by a magazine cover Michael illustrated, my vision of a cafe run by animals came to life. Each piece features characters engaging in various food-themed activities, and they're appropriate for both boys and girls. Graphic designer Jessica Short collaborated with Michael and me to bring the line to life.
