Broom Project – Crazy Cleanup!

For our intro project in ID2, we were asked to redesign a broom. I decided to create a broom based game for kids called ‘Crazy Cleanup!’. Basically, it is a wacky broom that shoots confetti out the end in hopes of encouraging or teaching cleaning. I carved a full scale model out of foam.

Model Making

Learning to make models was really fun. Making actual models is a pain. I made utensils (mainly a spoon) out of various techniques including: shaping foam, carving renshape, making a silicone mold and casting with resin. The design is meant for children’s airline meal services. I wanted the handles to mimic a plane’s wing.
