As an industrial designer, I was responsible for developing a unique and innovative design that would set the standard for Easton's lacrosse product line. My involvement encompassed ideation, rapid prototyping, overseeing the creation of a full-scale clay model, and supervising the CAD construction done by our partners in China. Additionally, I created Bills of Materials, explored color combinations, and participated in focus group studies. I also contributed to the helmet's successful marketing tour.
The making of the Easton Raptor
This was a promotional video made to introduce the helmet to the Lacrosse world, explain the process being the product, and show people that were involved with the project.
"This baby is the end result of decades of lacrosse experience meeting genius design skill, blended together with Easton’s ridiculous resources and a drive to flip the game on its rear. And we have to say, they did one hell of a job! The Raptor is everything lax players have been dreaming of in lacrosse helmets. Its shell is made of a single piece of polycarbonate, with a single-piece, impact-absorbing EPP foam liner heat-bonded to the inside. What does all that jargon mean for you? Well basically, the Raptor Helmet is the lightest lacrosse helmet in the world (1.8 lbs / 28.8 ounces). That’s feather light. Leaf-in-the-wind light. Obscenely, should-be-illegal, outright ludicrously light!"
