INSPIRATION

Design Intent: to create a sleek, elegant guitar capo ... that also holds your pick for switching to and from fingerstyle.


EXPLORATION

Sketching, Ideation, Lateral Thinking


PROTOTYPING

I assembled a "mini guitar" to keep in the Product Realization Lab out of pieces from an old broken guitar I had lying around, and throughout the manufacturing process I would test my parts on it to ensure functionality. My first prototype was a clamp design allowing compression of individual strings, which I eventually pivoted from for functionality, scope, and aesthetic reasons.
