Multitool cardboard construction toy
MAKEDOSlide-saw, Plastic toy, 2017
Slide-saw is a multitool designed for the toy company MAKEDO. It introduces a better saw, a perforator, and a clean aesthetic in line with the company's brand. I developed new concepts and designs through collaboration with MAKEDO’s Founder and Lead Designer.

What is MAKEDO?
A play system for cardboard construction for kids and adults. Their classic tools include: SAFE-SAW, SCRU-DRIVER, and SCRUs.
SCRU-DRIVER + SCRU
Challenge: To create a multitool that gives greater independence to kids ages 7+ and empowers a new audience of Makers of every age. Deliverable: A multitool that combines a better saw, a perforator, and a clean aesthetic in line with the company's brand.
Constant user testing, 3D printing, and making allowed for a fluid idea-to-prototype process.
