Wentworth Intern Assists with New Designs

Posted on: May 8th, 2013 by GWStudio 2 Comments

Christina Fenton, our intern from Wentworth Institute of Technology, aided us with several projects during her 3 month co-op.  Christina excelled in graphic design and a willingness to jump into any project! She provided assistance with projects ranging from a new trade show banner to tackling the conceptual drawings for two of Geoff’s new designs.  The two new accessories for our Rolling Owl Stools are the Wing and the Back.  The Owl Wing will provide an adjustable work surface for tablets or laptops.  The Owl Back will also be adjustable to ensure that the “sit bones” are positioned to maximize the ergonomic comfort of the Owl stool. Christina’s outstanding conceptual drawings are below.

We would like to thank Wentworth Institute of Technology for offering the Co-op Program.  It was a tremendously positive experience.  Christina’s skills, enthusiasm, and initiative accelerated the progress on all of her projects.  In addition to her design work, Christina also began sourcing parts and manufacturers for the the Rolling Owl accessories.

The 3 months flew by– it was difficult to see Christina leave our nest!  We thank Christina for her contributions and wish her the best in her future pursuits. We know that she will be a success where ever she lands after graduation.  To see more of Christina’s industrial designs visit: www.christinafenton.com.

Stay tuned for more information about the Wing and Back!
