Biomimetic Industrial Design

I’m thrilled to be taking my first foray into Industrial Design, specifically focused on biomimetics: examining nature to discover more elegant product design solutions.

Under the expert guidance of Fulbright Scholar Tom McKeag, and T.A. Patima Pataramekin — who left partway through the semester to start her first real job as a UX Designer for Apple — we’ve designed two projects and conceived, pitched, produced, and presented booths for Nightlife at the California Academy of Sciences.

Here’s a preview of my final project:

…and one of the assignments:

Design a product based on a hero animal found on the beach in Bolinas.
