in late 2015 I set out on a mission to find a way to end my sales career in automotive software and begin my own journey. my goal was to find a way to provide for my family while feeding my creative energy. I spent several months brainstorming, collaborating, researching, and sketching. every. single. night. and then I realized, I had already made blink box on a much larger scale. the idea combined my love for archiving and organizing facts and pictures, of my own life, with my desire to be a maker. my next step was to find a trusted resource who could turn my idea and chicken scratches into physical space. enter Andrea, a high school friend and the perfect eye to share my vision.
when my first born was three, I created a large, plastic file box separated by age labeled folders to record his life. it was ugly, bulky and lacked a consistent way to document special moments. while creating blink box, my main priority was to design a final product that gave the user organization, structure and the ability to be creative. blink box is a tool to capture one-of-a-kind moments thru photos and creative writing; the end result is a classic and timeless documentation of a life. it is meant to be shared and used and explored by tiny fingers, curious teenagers and reflecting adults.
