My Work

Sonos Play 1 - CMF

We designed and supported the implementation of the Limited Edition series by working intensely with vendors in China and US to preserve and control the quality of the CMF intent.

Tivo Streaming Boxes

In partnership with TiVo we created multiple streaming and recording boxes that were simple in form but bold in statement. Taking a statement in the brief to heart, "a device that you cant stalk any other set top box on top" It lead to the design of the larger devices' gesture.

Little Fish Smart Display

Through Y Studios we did a deep collaboration is the XiaoDuZaiJia 小度在家 Smart Display. We developed a comprehensive program that includes design research, brand identity, industrial design, CMF development, packaging design, product animation video and website design.

VAVA 4k Projector

We designed an ultra short throw projector that was meant to fit in any home. Taking deep consideration for material, color and form this approachable aesthetic will blend into any home environment.

My Expertise

Focus on design

As an Industrial Designer my focus is hardware design, how users interact with it, and how it is physically perceived through site, touch and sometime smell. When all done well and complement each other it leads to a good experience.
