Process: After one of the most recognizable four-bar guitar intros in music history, this song explodes into the quintessential garage-rock anthem of the 60s.  In order to capture that initial burst, I chose bright reds and oranges with a muted array of purple as background.

Prompt: Design a product that helps people remember meaningful moments. Process: Having 24/7 access to all the information in the world is decreasing our ability to empathize with each other. By using augmented reality technology combined with audio notes, users of blip are forced to feel, just for a second, a moment in someone else's shoes.  This is an integral first step to expanding one's capacity for empathy. Result: Blip is a geo-caching photo-storage application that non only allows people to store photos and videos at the location of the initial experience, but expands their capacity for empathy by encouraging users to experience others' meaningful moments in their immediate vicinity.
