Today caseable presents the first posts of our new weekly series: “Behind the Scenes: Team Portraits”. The first chosen one is our designer Emily, who will tell you a little bit about herself and present one of her favorite sleeves. Spotlight on Emily!
1. Tell us a little about yourself?
I am originally from New York and I study IndustrialDesign at Pratt Institute. I like to make things, ranging from computer cases, lamps, and little square paintings, to delicious sausages and sandwiches. My newest passion is a 1930s sewing machine that weighs as much as a small person!
2. What’s your job at caseable?
I am the design intern at caseable. I do a combination of graphic design and product design. My favorite task right now is developing our newest product— the iPad case– and sewing up prototypes on my lovely sewing machine! The final design is going to be pretty great, if I do say so myself.
3. What’s it like working for caseable?
Working for caseable is fun! My co-workers are very cool, relaxed people. I think we make a great team– everyone brings their own unique talents and interests to the table.
4. What super hero ability would you like to have?
Teleportation– so I could travel lots, AND I wouldn’t have to ride my bike through the scary Brooklyn traffic to get to work. Seriously, what is up with those intersections???
5. What is your sport?
Don’t laugh… but it’s juggling! I just learned how to juggle clubs over the summer.
6. Finally, show us your favorite sleeve.
I don’t know if I have a favorite yet… But here’s one I just made that I like very much. The graphic is a close-up from a little painting I did.
