ChininisDesignLab

I grew up going to summer camp, my mom was the nurse, and I found myself drawn to the Arts & Crafts room. It was there that I learned that making things was what I was supposed to be doing. By age 15, I was in charge of the Arts & Crafts program, and I've been designing and making things ever since. I studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art and I am proud to count Viktor Schreckengost as one of my mentors. Like Vik, I am also a teacher, and I'm currently challenging industrial design students at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I focus on teaching students how to invent, design, and then make products, and I consider teaching to be part of my design mission. Now I'm having fun developing products that I can sell directly to the folks that use them, like you! New technology (3D printing and laser cutters) has made it possible for me to personalize the work I do. I'm interested in having an active conversation with the people who use the products I design, which will allow me to refine and evolve them over time. I look forward to hearing from you, and if you have an idea about how I can make a product work better for you, please let me know! Designing and inventing comes naturally to me . . . and doing what I love . . . makes me a happy camper.
