Solar Powered Trash Bin Designs
Roanoke city put out a call to design six trash bins that were to be located in six specific locations around the city. My design idea was to incorporate a bit of history about the neighborhood the bin was going to be located in, along with the geographic location of the bin with regards to other points around the city. So, each bin has a photo from the neighborhood in which it is located, a bit of textual history and walking distance to other places around the city. The idea here was that the designs would connect people to the time and space of Roanoke, historically and geographically.

This was easily the most visual thing I've ever done in terms of visibility throughout the city. There are a total of nine of them now throughout the city.
