Throughout my time in Graphic Communication, the aspect of taking a product design from ideation to creation interested me the most. I have taken multiple classes that allowed me to do this, but with pre-determined parameters. Screen printing always caught my attention mainly because I wanted to make my own clothing. Though I learned how to execute the process, I never applied that knowledge into my own project. With my internship at Flame Broiler Inc. and my enrollment in GrC 462, a perfect opportunity presented itself. The marketing team at the company was open to any ideas and liked the idea of creating promotional products that they could use for marketing purposes. The main goal of this project was to research, design, and create four items in the span of 10 weeks.
