The Style Station was the best selling bath item at Bed, Bath & Beyond upon its release.
Our client, Hospeco, commissioned us to develop the next generation of bathroom sanitation products. This project, a feminine hygiene product dispenser, was designed with a modular pay/timer system. This allowed proprietors to select a traditional paid method, or to join in with equality movements (like Free the Tampons) and offer the products for free.
I was responsible for not only translating Nick's sketches into 3D, but also for modeling and designing the mechanical features. To switch between paid and free versions a slug was inserted into the custom coin tumbler mechanism, and a timer controlled the availability of the next product. The timer was intended to reduce over consumption of the free product.
My 3D models were prototyped and refined into full production ready models. These models were even field tested to look for failures.
As a creative, MacBooks are a must, but there's no great way to organize the long MacBook charger cable that we all use. It's made out of high quality materials, but that means it's constantly coming unwound.
I wanted a solution that I could make myself, but would be easily scalable. I started with paper mockups and quickly started cutting out leather samples.
After refining the pattern, I created the brand targeted at freelancers, coffeeshop aficionados, and world travelers.
I got production pricing and MOQs and on September 1st, 2016, I successfully raised just over $11,000 on Kickstarter.

There Is No War
If we approach life like everything is against us, we will experience push back. If we are at peace with ourselves and the world around us, we will produce peace wherever we go.

"We have the opportunity many times a day, everyday, to be the one who listens to others, curious rather than certain. And the greatest benefit that comes to those who listen is that we develop closer relationships with those we thought we couldn't understand. When we listen with less judgment, we always develop better relationship with each other. It's not differences that divide us. It's our judgments that do. Curiosity and good listening bring us back together." - Margaret Wheatley
Whatever is weighing you down... it's time to push.
