Your Additional Work
The NERF Nade is a research intensive project aimed at reducing the material impact that a product has on the environment. To achieve this, the play functionality of an existing Nerf blaster was redesigned to become a throwable grenade-like object. An extensive iteration process was necessary to give this toy playable functionality.
About the Artist
My interest in product design began with prop design; I find it magical to manifest items from the virtual world into the real world. Product design is a unique field of study that allows me to transform my conceptual ideas into tangible objects that embody my creative thinking. I strongly believe that if I can imagine it, I am able to bring it into real life. The projects that I've chosen to display on this virtual show accurately capture my design thinking and style of work.
