design + product design
Can design touch someone's heart? That was the challenge proposed in Stefan Sagmeister's class in the MFA Design program at The School of Visual Arts. For my project, I decided to touch the hearts of my neighbors and their dog Murphy. Murphy was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy, or commonly known as enlarged heart. On walks, his collar lead to excessive breathing and most harnesses didn't fit his odd body shape. I designed a custom-fit harness, branded for Murphy, to give him the confidence to enjoy walks once again.
