Jaclyn Lowery


I’ve had a variety of design experiences including internships with Juggernaut, Apex, Paul Loebach, Branch, and Evolve.

My senior thesis is focused on designing a system for seamlessly charging devices from daily activities.

I knew I was destined to be apart of the creative field the moment my mother handed me scissors and I proceeded to style myself with a unique haircut, just to “see what it would be like”. I am always ready for new experiences, traveling around the world to collaborate with creatives who are also passionate about providing others with meaningful experiences.

I like to travel, do a little karaoke, and I am very well versed in small screen series. Sometimes I attempt to sew something or pluck harmonies on the guitar, though I mostly enjoy sharing a good brew with good friends.

I look forward to seeing you at the show, cheers!

Hello World! Welcome to UCID16.

Industrial Design offers such a wide range of possibilities. During my co-op experiences I have been able to work on projects ranging from one-off medical products (May We Help), to Click and Collect technology (Apex Supply Chain Technologies), to record players (Crosley). My favorite thing about the co-op program is knowing that I am having a positive impact on peoples’ lives.

For my capstone I am currently experimenting with bone conduction audio and how it can be implemented as a wearable.
Industrial Design is the perfect blend of art and science for me. I thoroughly enjoy the rapid prototyping experience that I have learned while at UC. There’s a saying that a prototype is worth 1,000 meetings.

I hail from the West Side of Cincinnati, love volleyball, and would describe myself as a tinkerer. For fun I once made a CNC machine from scratch just to see if I could do it. I am also inspired by people who blaze their own paths and follow their dreams.

May the odds be ever in your favor.

Welcome folks, make yourselves at home

I had a blast on all of my coops. Things I have worked on include the interior of a private jet , high tech ATM’s, a $12,000 desk, top secret stuff for Britta water filters, stuff for a 360º action camera and more.

For my capstone I am redesigning a build it yourself speaker kit so it can be assembled, tool-free, like furniture from IKEA.

My baby book says that I wanted to design toasters so I guess you could say I have been interested in design for a (my) lifetime. Out of high school I didn’t have good enough grades to get into DAAP so I studied digital design at CSCC and worked really hard to stay on the deans list. Seven years after setting my mind on DAAP I’m finally graduating.

Im into really high quality materials such as aluminum, hardwoods, and titanium. I try not to call myself an audiophile, foodie or a trecky, but unfortunately I am all three.

Thanks for looking!

I want to impress you.
While currently in Flexible Packaging Design, I’ve bounced around between Semi-Permanent Point-of-Purchase Displays, Luxury Product Visual-Brand-Language, and Floor Spaces for Children’s Museums. Whew! I don’t call it spreading myself too thin or wandering through experiences, I say I’m doing what I know best: rounding out an extensive sphere of design knowledge.

I am unveiling HOLO: a device that will project life-size holograms of anyone or anything into your home, breaking through to the future of entertainment, education, and round-the-world 3D communication.
I appreciate variety and differences. Product Design at DAAP has given me the skills to create anything and everything imaginable. I care less for refinement and more for invention. Do not ask ‘why?’ – ask ‘why not?’

In the past few years, I have successfully produced a 6-foot interactive LED floor lamp, a digital baby grand piano, ‘vertical vinyl” jukebox, giant filament bulb chandelier, and oh yeah, a beautiful daughter named Rose.



Colin Cormier

Oh hey! Hi! Didn’t see ya there!

In my time at the University of Cincinnati, I’ve been lucky to have a wide range of professional work experiences. I’ve been fortunate to work for corporate giants such as Boeing, Proctor & Gamble, Pfizer, and Kryptonite as well as getting down and dirty at Rookwood Pottery and UC’s very own Rapid Prototyping Lab. My experiences today have led me to a dive in the freelancing world and have allowed me to comfortably explore my entrepreneurial spirit.

For my capstone, I’m designing a safer alternative to fast roping for soldiers deploying from helicopters.

I remember sitting down to see the premier of Ironman in 2008. I loved that movie, and what stuck with me was Tony Starks’ workshop. I instantly knew what I wanted to do when (if) I ever grow up: I want to push the boundaries of what we think is possible and bring it all to life.

You know what’s exciting? Differential equations. Just kidding. That’s why I’m not an engineer, and landed at DAAP. Over my five years at UC, I’ve been fortunate to learn about how design and applied creativity can solve just about any problem.

When I’m not busy shooting a puck around, watching movies, playing trivia, bumping Wu-Tang Clan, or face down in a plate of poutine, you can probably find me fleshing out my next crazy idea. This week’s idea? Shoe wallets.

Want to bring an idea to life? Or recommend your favorite restaurant? Get in touch with me at colincormierdesigns@gmail.com. Cheers!



Alex DeStasio

Hi! I’m Alex.
I’ve worked at a range of different companies, most recently Astro Studios in SF. My capstone is centered around a brand of watches that balance an authentic analog watch experience with minimal digital interactions. Check out my work at: www.alexdestasio.com

I’m interested in creating beautiful and cohesive product experiences that users can connect with. I especially like designing consumer electronics, lifestyle products, and home goods.

When I’m not designing, I enjoy drinking coffee, looking at art, thinking about the beach, eating burritos, and listening to Ratatat.
Thanks for stopping by!



Nick Dean

Hey there!

I have nearly two years of international design design experience. Most recently I worked with the team at IDEO to change the way kids play. Preceeding that I was at Pensa in Brooklyn NY, SquareOne in Düsseldorf, Germany, and Fisher-Price in East Aurora, NY.

For my capstone I’m creating the world’s first internet connected espresso machine!

My path to Industrial Design began like most kids, playing with Lego. But in middle school when most kids were moving on to sports and other activities, I discovered the online Lego fan community (it’s as weird as it sounds), which fostered my creative and spatial skills and pointed me in the direction of Industrial Design.
When I’m not slaving away to our CAD overlords, I run, am a novice chef, watch foreign films, speak German, still build with Lego, and collect expensive, useless gadgets.

Viel Spaß!



Evan Dempsey

Hi there! I’m Evan.

I have over a year and half of experience working at design studios spread across the country. I’ve worked on a variety of projects ranging from consumer electronics, to packaging, to furniture.

For my capstone, I am designing a household lighting system thats gives users more control over their environments.

I entered industrial design excited by the opportunity to create objects that are important to people. I believe in taking a rational approach to designing objects that improve everyday life.

I’m into home goods, consumer electronics, and furniture.

Thanks for looking!

Industrial Design fulfills my passion for hands on building and creativity. I love building prototypes and making beautiful renders.

When I get the opportunity, I love to ski the bowls in Colorado, snorkel off the coast, or hike the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Thanks for taking a look at our work!


Eric Harsh

Hey, I’m Eric

I’ve worked professionally in prototyping, toy design, experience design, interaction design, and product design. Through co-op I’ve designed for influential corporations like Microsoft, Google, Logitech, and Hyundai as well as small startups.

For my capstone, I’m designing a device family that explores the future of ubiquitous computing.

You can find my work on my website ericharsh.com
or on Behance.

When I first got into industrial design I didn’t really know what it was – I just knew I wanted to do something that was both creative and intellectually challenging. Now I know what it is, and I like it.

I have several large and cumbersome hobbies that make moving incredibly difficult. I collect vinyl records, occasionally play an instrument, and read books & zines.

Thanks for checking out UCID16.
