If you are a networker and always out and about, you must get this for your home office to keep yourself organized. Industrial design is amazing! These are things that people use on a day to day basis and ID’s improve their aesthetics and ergonomic appeal. Toronto, Umbra is one of my favorite industrial design spots. In LA, Plastica on W 3rd is the spot to get all things industrial design related!

This is the Broccoli card holder.

Super cool card holder.

Comes flat with hardware for you to assemble in the sequence of your choice.

iPod, Coke bottle, VW Beetle, the Jeep – classic Industrial design.

industrial design = art + engineering

Industrial design is an applied art whereby the aesthetics and usability of mass-produced products may be improved for marketability and production. The role of an Industrial Designer is to create and execute design solutions towards problems of form, usability, user ergonomics, engineering, marketing, brand development and sales.

If you are interested in studying industrial design, check out Ontario College of Art & Design

and Rhode Island School of Design

I don’t buy what you think I’d like – I design, create and sell ’em back to ya!
