For this project I was required to make a small production run of a consumer lighting device. We were required to utilize specified materials that are sustainable in nature. My consumer lighting device is constructed of 14 gauge mild steel and 12 gauge steel tig wire.
The lamps are held together at the base using an inverted pendant lamp cord. I chose an edison bulb which adds to the sharp and metallic nature that the lamp has.
My goal with this project was to design a way to carry tools that would be both durable enough to be taken from place to place and appealing enough to be kept indefinitely. The carrier has a fitted pouch for a drill or driver bit box, elastic bands on the right side for wrenches, screwdrivers, or pliers, and a drawstring pouch on the left for cumbersome tools such as a mallet, calipers, hex keys, etc. The leather exterior will beautifully display the wear that the carrier will acquire from use. The folding design of the carrier allows it to hold a hefty amount of tools while still being easy to roll back into its compact and easy to carry form.
Modko’s Brett Teper was invited by his alma mater, R.I.T. Industrial Design, to participate in their annual T-minus project. Over 48 teams competed this year, each composed of one representative from every level of the ID program to produce a product from one of four proposed challenges.
As team leader for the 2016 RIT T-Minus Project my team set out to design: An unobtrusive drinking fountain that taps into a cat’s natural instinct through flowing water, material, and accessibility while simultaneously being high quality, low maintenance and spatially efficient.

For this project we were required to take a beverage company and help them re-design their image. The company I chose to reinvent is Perrier, the flavored carbonated water.
Some of the ideas that I had for Perrier include; redesigned logo, a cap that displays remaining carbonation, luxurious bottles, an rc car that delivers Perrier, bottles that resemble a lime, and finally a can that fully opens to insert citrus and ice.
