While working at Spin Master, myself and my team were tasked with the creation of a high-end “BB-8” remote controlled figure. Since BB-8 is an existing Star Wars character and property of Lucasfilm, our design process focused much more on licensor accuracy and play pattern. One item however had to be designed from the ground up.
My task was to design and develop the remote control to be included with the final product. From initial concepts, to functionality, to production and licensing approvals, It was my job to oversee the entire development process from beginning to end. Below are grouping of sketches, schematics, and renders highlighting the process of the overall design.
