This was my first design. Rich Soil Bank. The concept was a retail bank that operated on the basis of functions instead of rights. The design framework was biomimicry. Could a bank operate on the cellular level that life does? 2011 – 2014. I got a few things right and a lot of things I didn’t. And that’s okay. What I learned from this personal project was project management. That as a designer you have to consider business model and engineering constraints. […]
This was a concept I came up with in 2011 when staying at Hotel Andez near Wall Street. It’s call Wealth Bar and the concept is brand experience. The concept was taken from Apple’s Genius Bar where the company emulates Jobs’ passion for putting customers first. The design process was observation and brand experience as template. Design tools used were hand sketching 2011 and Illustrator 2018. “And the more time customers spend in the branches, with the bankers in […]
This was my first portfolio. Not knowing what to do for my high school senior project I decided to use my Scottrade portfolio as a learning opportunity. Articulate my thought process and practice communicating in technical terms. As of today I’m starting from scratch. Below is a list of financial advisors, newsletters and resources I take financial advise from. I’ve also included current trends and startup investment opportunities I would invest in.

Class icebreaker. Instead of introductions each person was to make a self portrait collage. Once finished portraits were collected and randomly redistributed through out the class. Each person was to interpret and share with the class what they could gage about the person from the portrait they received. I got sophisticated, natural, elegant, organized, coffee lover, bold.
Concept: Website for streamlining processes Challenge: Recruiting and time allocation of upper management. The company I worked for at the time had no computer or internet in the office before I join the company. As I slowly changed things (remodeled the office and set up a computer) I later inquired with management about bringing other people onboard to let me focus on big picture items. Transfer work from the CEO to me. I also approached management about having an online presence […]
Bare’ is biomimetic bra. Different than biometrics as you’re not collecting data. The design mimics the antagonistic muscle structure for a better support and lymph/ fascia movement as the breasts sit on top of the muscle and move in a figure-8 motion, and lymph (stored toxins in the body) are milked passively through muscle movement. One theory behind breast cancer is that the bra underwiring restricts the function of muscle moment to drain lymph. Fascia “Fascia is a thin layer of […]
Gentleman’s Emoji Set I like the idea of Kimoji’s (animated emojis that move) but have yet to find one that I would use. I wanted something more refined- poised and subtle yet distinctive and sure. I often send mono answers to friends; ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘?’. I would buy a emoji set like this. *Adjusts neck tie* I’m sure.
“The big premise is that there are duplicate eyes” – I Origins, director Mike Cahill Blink is an iris matching app that collects medical data through gamification. What if someone’s iris matches or shows similarities to mine? Does that mean we interpret light the same way, have the same preferences, tendencies and tastes? Think of it like a game or horoscope app, but instead of using birthdays you’re matching characters using the human iris and light. Or information, meta data and the world in my eyes. […]
