New Fixtures...and Pottery!

It's been a little while since I've blogged, which means a lot has been going on in the GF Design studio! This month I was excited to see a couple fixtures I designed with Lynx for the new Tony Hawk Ride video game release. Here is the endcap display currently in GameStop stores:

...and in-line display at Toys-R-Us which features a wood halfpipe:

I also had the opportunity to bring in my amazing graphic designer and illustrator sister Heidi Panelli on the design of the overhead graphics for the entire wall of gondolas here in Toys-r-Us:

It's been in the works for a while and is always exciting to get to the point when everything is out in the public! I'll be adding more photos to my web portfolio soon.

I've also been working on some more product and packaging design, as well as some more graphic work. So, there have been no shortage of projects to keep me busy this winter, in addition to preparing for Christmas, my son's 2nd birthday party (day after Christmas), and the arrival of baby #2 due in 6 weeks!

In addition to my design work, I've just completed a 6 week course on the pottery wheel at the Bloomington Art Center and had a great time. I still have a few more pots that need to be fired, but here is a sampling of some of the pieces I have been able to bring home over the past couple weeks:

I had a lot of fun, got a chance to get away by myself (precious time for a work-at-home mom!), and even got to make some Christmas gifts.

So, that's what has been going on in my design world lately...hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!
