Grab and Go SolidWorks model - The Grap and Go is designed for fast-paced meal-on-the-go environments such as airports and grocery store delis. A sealed side compartment allows for condiment and utensil storage without food contamination. This design also incorporates 2 built-in stands to create a more visible display of its contents to passersby. The models shown above were created and rendered in SolidWorks.
Grab and Go Vacuum Formed Prototype - I designed the Grab and Go's overall aesthetic while meeting volume capacity and other dimensional, manufacturing, and costing requirements. These functional prototypes were created by vacuum forming polystyrene sheet over SLA produced molds.

Research and sketching - My senior design project at Auburn University was to develop an affordable aid for special needs children who have trouble feeding themselves. Current products on the market are often expensive and unattractive. My research involved visiting special education classrooms for lunch, researching the current market for similar items, and observing how people with special needs grip their eating utensils.
Models and Final Design - The final design of the Flip2Grip is an eating utensil with a hollow clamshell handle. This allows for the three dimensional handle that is needed for stability with minimal material usage, keeping costs low. The grip is designed with curvature that provides stability and support. It is also angled towards the user's face in order to aid children who may not have developed fine motor skills.
Specialty Line Take Out Packaging Redesign - Innoware's line of specialty take out packaging lacked a cohesive, modern look. The specialty line is used for a variety of items including sushi, hoagies, and snack items. This line contained many repetitive sku's with minimal differences in function and size. I worked to design a more uniform, updated line of products that eliminated unnecessary or repetitive items.
Specialty Line Packaging Form Study - Above is a form study that showed the sales and marketing team different ways the Specialty Line could echo the design of other Innoware items. I developed several concepts that reflected the large radii and wavy sidewalls of the existing IsoBox and
the chamfered corners of the existing OctaView and Potato Box. After presenting this form study to marketing and sales, we decided to go with a clean and modern design with large radii similar to the IsoBox form studies.
Specialty Line Features - All designs were modeled in SolidWorks, taking into account size and volume capacity requirements. The new design presents both an aesthetically and functionally better solution as shown in the notes above.
Coca-Cola Countertop Cooler - I designed a countertop cooler concept for Coca-Cola's new aluminum bottles. Coca-Cola wanted a small display that communicated that the product was cold, highlighted the aluminum material and the iconic Coca-Cola bottle shape. I also showed options for a header or side graphics that reflected the graphics in this campaign.
NuSouth Graphics Redesign - Large graphics like the one on the cooler above need to be set at a high resolution for a quality appearance. When a customer came to us with only low resolution graphics, I worked with them to develop new graphics that would better advertise their product.
