Interaction Design Intern
Jan 2013 - Mar 2013 (2 months)
Designed the MakerHaus Materials Library experience. My duties included the design and development of a Materials Library for use by MakerHaus members whom work in a wide range of professions from craftsmen to architects and designers. This involved the physical design of various elements of the library, including sample palettes, signage, mounting elements, etc., as well as the design of how members would use the Materials Library and interact with the materials samples contained therein.
Throughout my internship, I employed the use of various software programs (including the Adobe Creative Suite) and equipment (laser cutter, wood and metal shops) to achieve my goal of creating an inspiring, informative space and invaluable resource at MakerHaus.
During a recent visit to the MakerHaus Materials Library, Zach Kaplan, CEO of Inventables, remarked, "This is going to be the best materials library in the country." In response to seeing and experiencing the MakerHaus Materials Library, Mr. Kaplan has expanded his company's participation from material supplier to include exclusive video/interactive components on the Inventables website as provided by the MakerHaus community. www.inventables.com
