Like "Lake N," Tentback is a concept that came about during a sketching excercise. I was tasked with designing a tent that could be compressed and carried easily for a couple on a camping trip. I thought an interesting way to change the unpack-build experience would be through the transformation of a different product: out of this arised 2 backpacks that zip together to form a tent.
I did a quick and dirty storyboard comparing "last year" and "this year" to illustrate the concept. A couple of my early sketches give you a sense of where I started, and where I went.
