I just moved to NYC a couple of days ago from Stockholm, Sweden and currently live in Brooklyn. I’ve done design ever since finishing secondary school. I jumped straight in to the student life of Lund University back in 2008 and took my undergrad in Industrial Design in 2011. Since then, Ive worked in Stockholm at a Design and Architecture firm called Claesson Koivisto Rune (you can check them out at http://www.ckr.se) The aspect of design that I love is that it allows you to make an impact on your surroundings. People always ask me why I started studying right out of school, and I think its because I feel Ive found what I love to do, but also what I feel I need to do.
Anywaay, here are some pictures to lighten the mood. So this is me and my (younger) sister when we were tiny
Since then Ive done a lot of this,
And, most recently, some of this
I have a passion for anything that makes our world a better place. Im an idealist and a problem solver, and I love to apply design to fields that usually dont use the design methodology.
Hi i’m Richard. Im from New Zealand, grew up on a farm in Hawkes Bay. I have always been interested in how things work and trying to make more efficient & better versions of existing things.
I really enjoy the workshop and am especially looking forward to merging digital and physical craft into one entity. My background is in Industrial Design, specifically furniture and conceptual products. I also have experience with photography, jewelry and interaction design. also I don’t believe in uppercase letters and my spelling is atrocious.
Hey, this is Rona. I was born in Washington D.C. and moved to Turkey when l was 3 years old. I grew up in the capital city; Ankara where l received my BFA degree from Bilkent University in Interior Architecture and Environmental Design. After my graduation I moved to the city which l absolutely love; Istanbul.
I worked for some art galleries, a kids oriented product design firm, an architectural firm and a design & fashion store.
I also do illustrations, take pictures and make jewelry.
I like to talk about animal documentaires, art and high fashion. Every day I’m motivated about trying new things and experimenting. Very excited about having the time & this great opportunity to produce my own products and designs.
I arrived in New York last week after living in sunny Pittsburgh for the past 5 years. Its fascinating to dive into school while attempting to get acquainted with the vastness of this city. There’s just so many awesome museums and galleries here! Earlier today, I went to the Public Library with a couple classmates to learn about the history of lunches.
Anyway, the photo (above) was taken by my friend Laura, while hiking in Wyoming this summer.
I wrangled the Panther at U Pitt while majoring in Studio Arts and Architectural Studies. Printmaking was my focus and I’ve come to appreciate rigorous making processes (sometimes more than the end result). After graduation I worked at FISHER ARCHitecture, where I had the opportunity to design glass furniture. My experience as an intern opened my eyes to the to possibilities of 3d computer design and digital fabrication. I can’t wait to learn CNC, 3d printing, and laser cutting!
My favorite hobby is photography and I’m a strong supporter of analog/darkroom processes.
Fuji pack-film (above) is my latest obsession, because it works in older Polaroid Automatic Land Cameras. You can see all of my design/artwork/photography on my website: claykippen.com. I also post daily to my flickr and tumblr accounts, which list the different cameras and films that I use.
My dad used to own his own popcorn company. This is me in his catalog with an obscenely large button on my member’s only jacket.
I was born & raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota (technically Edina which is a suburb). Brooklyn is my new home via Chicago, where I was for the last 7 yrs. I received a BFA in industrial design & a minor in business administration from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. For the past 10 years I’ve worked at numerous consultancies & corporations as a full-time & freelance designer at places such as Radius, Lunar, Teague, Wrigley, Ignite & Choi Design.
Here is a hilarious viral video of some speakers I worked on that were just released.
I dabble in furniture design as well as design competitions in my free time.
