    Thingmade is a boutique shop powered by Madwell, a Brooklyn-based creative agency.

    I worked on a series of product photography for the launch of the Thingmade website. 
    At the time, Thingmade had four creations in its universe, three of which were inspired by Susan Kare.

    1 - A four-piece set of glassware (also known as Stumblers) printed with pixel icons suggestive of alcohol-induced hallucinations
    2 - A cotton tee named Love is War and silkscreened with a sequence of bombs forming the universal symbol of affection
    3 - An ashy soot-colored wool cap for the modern-day conqueror, embroidered with a viking helmet icon

    The fourth creation is a Thingmade original, a Gyroscopic Illuminated Figure (GIF). An analog spin on the familiar digital loading sequence, the Gyroscopic Illuminated Figure takes a symbol of anticipation, frustration, and promise and extends it indefinitely.
