Fourteen year old Simukayi ‘Simi’ Matemachani likes playing video games and watching movies, but he spends a lot of his free time drawing animated people. This past summer, Simi learned how to take one of his drawings from a simple sketch to 3D printed characters in one of Design Bank's four-week prototyping workshop led by Wil Marquez, Design Bank Co-Founder, and Jason Mischke, Lead Trainer and Rapid Prototyper. He has since developed an animated story based on these characters.
JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
For the holiday's Simi is venturing into the land of entrepreneurship by turning his 3D printed characters into ornaments. The ornaments are available in the Design Bank Marketplace for a very limited time!
Simi hopes to have a design career, possibly in architecture, or as a cartoonist for an animated series. The Design Bank is pleased to help him learn and apply the skills he needs to reach his goals. Purchase your ornament by December 24th and you can too!
