What are we creating?
We are making a beautiful desk stand for airplants, which are extremely beautiful and simple to care for. When you care for a plant you develop a mutual relationship, almost like they're your life co-pilot. We want to take our stand a step further and incorporate a simple interactive mechanic which you can use to form a new habit.
If we have plants where we work, they help us get on our A game. There is a tremendous amount of research to prove it. If you don’t have a plant on your desk, you’re not as good at your job as you could be. Caring for plants can even make you live longer.
What do we need from you?
We have already spend some time sketching, laser cutting prototypes, using them ourselves and tinkering around with UX of the co-pilot. We have a basic idea of how the product might work, but we don’t fully know how it will look. We have some preferred materials and a general idea of where we need the costs to end up. You will take the idea to a finished prototype that is ready to manufacture.
What you should be great at:
Crafting designs that accentuate lovely small details and beautiful touch points
Knowing what materials and processes will come in at the right cost (including assembly)
Presenting your work visually (videography a strong plus)
