During my time as an intern and junior designer at Swarm Design, we worked with the founders of MagMod to develop an entirely new way for photographers to interact with their lighting equipment. We applied user centered design principles to an underserved product category. The result was a photography lighting experience that is not only easier and faster, but also offers more control.
My contribution centered around the design of the MagRing, which mounts to the hand grip and magnetically secures the lights.
The forms and construction evolved based on the insight gained from many rounds of prototyping, rigorous testing, and production samples.
