Design Lab is an experiment, let me tell you more...

I've prioritized focusing on my creativity and design in the studio more than ever this year. My team and I are working on all kinds of designs, methods and combinations. These new pieces are fresh off the bench and will be available for a limited time. Your feedback will play a role in my design process and some of these pieces may become part of our permanent collection.

When I was a student at Virginia Tech, my primary Industrial Design class was called 'Lab.' In this ongoing course, we deliberately designed and tested our ideas. The process began with conceptualization, then onto sketching, modeling, refining, critiquing and then refining again. It was iteration after iteration in Lab and this is how I blossomed into a holistic designer. From this experience, I've developed CMD's Design Lab concept.

Design Lab features cohesive micro-collections. Each micro-collection will be finished iterations of a concept that I've been developing over the course of time. The most exciting part is that it gives me more creative freedom than ever. Please join me for the first Design Lab that will take place on Thursday, August 5that 7pm EST on Instagram Live. I can't wait.

By now, you may have noticed CMD's trend towards smaller, more frequent product launches. As a designer, I love the challenge of being creatively disciplined. Part of this practice involves writing in my journal and drawing in my sketchbook daily. The joy and fulfillment that [...]

On Sensory Overload

April 25, 2023

I’ve been thinking a lot about spring and the sensations we’re all experiencing with the waking of the season. Everything is fully engaged in the world’s re-ignition, including the singing birds and new buds of a complicated vine. Every living and breathing being is enjoying these sensations, and it’s a beautiful thing [...]
