Two Eyes are Better Than None

1995-October - 1996-March: Single Image Stereogram
A strange project using the same technology as the evil "Magic Eye" images that plagues the malls of the world in the mid '90s. The ideas were all over the place. One was to make a game piece for McDonald's, another was a device to make seeing the images easier. Yet another was a cube that when looked at right would have a single image stereogram image appear across several faces. I really didn't understand the project, I simply created the images and tried to figure out how to make a simple viewer. At this point I had not yet met Douglas Goodman, although I did know of the larger project that Marty was working on with Douglas and several other ArtCenter students and graduates. Soon enough I would be there as well.
Where is this project now? Nowhere. My eyes are aching from trying to figure out what secrets these old images contain.

A Sticky Task

1995-September - October: Diaper Closure
This was a fun and fast project, again brought to me by Marty Smith. Although this time he did not simply hand it off for me to work directly with the client.
The entire project was to come up with some new ways to close a diaper. There were several designers who came up with ideas, including me. Marty then edited them down and presented them to Avery-Dennison. My favorite worked like the finger traps; silly, but fun.
I never heard if anything came of the work. But then I don't spend any time around diapers, other than glancing at the aisle at the grocery store and seeing that I don't need to go down that one.
Sorry, no picture...yet.
