Bright Starts - Bucket sets for Target Summer Promotion - Injection and roto-molded bucket sets designed for a Summer Promotion at Target in 2005 - the garden set is my favorite of the three
Spider-Man Toy and Packaging Concept - Spider-Man zip-line toy with comic book style packaging - I made this toy on my own to show an older age category and an understanding of the action figure/boys category.
Senior Thesis - Educational Developmental Toy Concept - My final project at Georgia Tech - my goal was to create a plush and plastic toy with strong developmental features, added educational value, and visual consistency through a themed approach.
