A 17' wooden kayak and matching paddle that are completely handcrafted using the traditional method of strip-built construction while integrating the highest quality of materials.
My contributions to the project: primary and secondary research, analysis on boat construction, ideation and conceptualization, 3D modeling using Rhinoceros for laser cutting ribs, pattern exploration, all parts of the building process and graphic communication for presentations during all stages of the design.
A collection of creative characters developed for multiple private labels and under the PetZone brand.
The 1972 Orbit Robot timepiece shows off this perfect fusion between the stylish design cues of an era and the reliability of a functional tool watch. Given the rarity of this particular model, it was important for BENRUS to celebrate it by maintaining the exact and very contemporary dimensions as the original while adding a twist with its newly designed case back.
I was responsible for the case back design, exploration and final approval.
One of the stand-out features of the original and the current reissue is the grey fumé dial, which was paid particular attention to in order to fully replicate the depth and radiance of the original grey watch model. The center of the dial starts with a light grey metallic and darkens as you move towards the outer edge. The date window has been maintained, but the day window removed to allow the dial to be fully appreciated. The case back features a custom BENRUS robot orbiting the Earth, a fun update made to honor the name of the watch.
