Mixer developed the Industrial Design, created the unique toner refilling system and engineered production components of this revolutionary printer. Numerous internationally patent-able innovations were also created from our design explorations .
The thing that was the most impactful thing for me when I started out in industrial design was the Memphis design movement. This was a group of Italian architects who formed a design collective and started to create objects. I didn’t know it at the time, but I’ve since learned that the name was inspired by a Bob Dylan song. When I was growing up, I loved making art. I really loved doing sculpture. But by the time I got to my junior year in high school, I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, but I knew I didn’t want to suffer for my art.
The thing that eventually inspired me to get into industrial design was the space shuttle. I keep this toy version on my desk.
I grew up in the 80s and I saw space shuttles everywhere, but I didn’t know what it was about them that made me think they were cool. I mean, yes, they went into space, but they also looked good. It was only years later that I understood that I was attracted to it because it looked the way it did because it had to.
