Jolene Carlier is a designer and an artist. In her drawings she creates a world of pure imagination. The act of drawing triggers workable ideas that make sense in the real world. Her method proves the strength of a playful approach to the design process, one that focuses on colour and shape and can lead to a surprising functionality. To illustrate the way this works, she has translated one of her drawings into a working popcorn machine. Its colourful and chunky appearance, plus the transparency in the mechanism, reflect the excitement and joy that popcorn making brings.
