Game Project

Working in a group of 3, including Lincoln He and Alanna Fusaro, together we produced this board game. We call it Whispering Pines Campground. In the board game ghosts must try to kill campers while the campers collect firewood in order to drive the ghosts out of their campground.  This was our final project for Semester II Studio.

Pop-Up Book

Each member of my class was given a 6 inch letter.  I was given the letter U.  Our assignment was to create a single page pop-up with that letter.  And the movement  of the pop-up book needed to reflect certain qualities that we saw in the letter.  In the pop-up I created the U twists and blooms out of the page, reflecting the quality of the letters sound and form. You can see a video of all the pop-up books from my class here, mine comes up at 1:20.

Salt and Pepper Shakers

My assignment for this project was to create a set of salt and pepper shakers.  Using only 3 basic forms that either joined, pierced, or cradled one another.  The goal was to make the forms visually interesting by the way the individual shapes interacted with one another.  By paying close attention to the size, position, and the angles of each shape I created a hierarchy within the group.  Creating a dominate, sub-dominate, and subordinate shape.

The process of getting to my final design included many drawing and sketch models.  The drawings were mostly done in pen and marker.  The sketch models were done in blue insulation foam and chipboard.

Ferdinand the Fox

Ferdinand the Fox

This was my first project of Second Semester at CMU for Design Studio II.  The assignment was to identify the very basic forms that make up the animal of our choice.  After that, we each created that animal using the knowledge of the shapes we had identified, and found plastic bottles that matched those shapes.  We then wrote short stories and descriptions of our animals.
