Franklin Vallant

I am an imaginative designer who is rooted in the technical constraints of our world. When I design, I see an opportunity to learn hands-on, and obsess with the subject at hand. I hope to help change our interactions with products through my attention to details, materials, manufacturability, and serviceability.
