Welcome to the portfolio of Mitchell Jacobs, master graduate student in Industrial Design at the University of technology Eindhoven. You are invited to experience my work starting with my design vision.
As a designer I am interested in how acquired knowledge and materials, like for example an abacus, can be enriched by new upcoming technologies with the aim to motivate people to want to learn more. So knowledge and technology go hand in hand and thereby enrich rather than replace, to show the potential of technology to full advantage.
I experience many opportunities to execute this vision within education. Children posses a natural curiosity to explore and to start reasoning. Design and technology can help to stimulate this curiosity and enrich the experience of education.
How I translate this vision into products can be experienced in my portfolio.
I hope you enjoy my work!
