design philosophy Design is universal. It is what defines us, not as individuals, but as a group of people, as a society, as a culture. When we have a mutual respect for designs from around the world, we have a respect for the culture and people who created them. That respect will pave the way to a future in which we as humans are all connected, without the suppression of any individual society. This path will create experiences which provide joy and excitement into even the most simple parts of our lives.

design foundations color, form, and space

This is the final project of the foundations year- the monolith. It represents the cumulation of ideas gained throughout the year, from creating visual interest via contrast to using repetition and axis changes to create tactile interest. The monolith is a form which has no top or bottom- instead it is something you should want to pick up and explore if you see it laying on a table.


These are studies in form, color, and composition. They represent many different design elements, including gestalt theory, repetition, rhythm, grid systems, golden proportions, transparencies, color schemes, complementary colors, analogous colors, grouping, tension, and figure ground relationships.

One of the most interesting aspects of the monolith is the fact that it is made of a single piece of wood. After modeling it in clay, I cut the model into 15 equally tall slices with a wire. These slices have an axis on which they all line up to form my volume. By rotating the axis on the wood panel, I was able to achieve the striping effect, where every other stripe is the wood grain running in the opposite direction.
