A pair of gadgets for explorers

Client: Power Practical
Role: Industrial Design / Prototyping / Imagery

Sparkr is about adventure and discovery—of the world and of the product itself. Its quirky design suggests it's more than just a flashlight. As you explore it, clever features start to reveal themselves.

Power Practical asked me to design an adventure tool that could create fire and light. It was an opportunity to reinvent utilitarian tools in a playful way that would resonate with their audience of outdoorsy millennials.

Excited about the Sparkr's design, we decided to create a pocket-sized companion product for everyday use cases. The Sparkr and Sparkr Mini raised over $500,000 on Kickstarter and Sparkr was later curated by the MoMA Design Store.
