Surprise Box

Group Project, Designing Product Interactions

My team was tasked to design a box to elicit surprise from users for the Designing Product Interactions course at Northwestern University. The box comes alive and inspires surprise and delight through a series of unilateral interactions.

Building the Concept - Quickly

I designed and assembled the mechanisms to make the box come alive. Choosing simple mechanisms and prototyping methods allowed us to quickly bring the idea to life.

Inspiration and Ideation

We created a mood board to find inspiration for our surprise-inducing concept. We then brainstormed concepts and sketched forms for the box.
