The Transcend Backpack

Unleashing parkour potential. This is the world's first backpack designed for parkour traceurs (that actually works). Watch the video presentation below or click here to learn more.

The Transcend Backpack defines the competition as the only true high-activity backpack. Follow me on my journey through the design process.

COMBINING THE POWER of modern technology with nostalgic design influences, the Retro Bro harkens back to an age of childhood gaming wonder. Capable of running all video game systems from the origins of Atari and Commodore all the way up to the Nintendo 64 and Playstation, it provides an unparalleled portable gaming experience.


Features: HDMI output, ethernet connectivity, built-in wi-fi, multiple USB input ports, full screen control, 3.5mm headphone jack, micro-USB charging port, 6000 mAh rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery offering up to five continuous hours of gameplay. A silent, 40mm axial fan keeps the device running coolly and efficiently even with graphic-intensive games.

What began as a surprise for my girlfriend turned into a social media frenzy which then became an Etsy shop that launched on November 11th, 2017. Sales have been entirely social media driven thanks to my girlfriend, who has been marketing my first patent-pending design.


Expandable and modular, ShadowRacks allow customization to suit any cosmetic collection, large or small. Each standard rack securely holds up to 16 single shadows, making them easy to view and access without taking up valuable counter space. A single row fitting four shadows is also available to match collections with even more accuracy. ShadowRacks are designed to quickly and easily link together so they can expand with growing collections or shrink following an annual declutter.


No wall space? No problem, ShadowRacks also make perfect drawer organizers. Instead of digging through drawers and looking shadow by shadow, makeup enthusiasts can stack the racks and lift up 16 shadows all at once to uncover another rack beneath.


Additional products are being developed to expand the ShadowRack system including lipstick racks, trays for palettes and nail polish, ideal brush storage and more; all able to be hung on the wall, linked together and arranged to the users most precise preference.


+ Functional storage and personal decor

+ Easily see an entire collection at a glance

+ Effortless to use, add and remove shadows

+ Plan out your vanity; mix and match your display

+ Clear limited counters and utilize wall space

+ Display your makeup investment like it's art


The ultimate goal of makeup storage is to be able to see what is owned and to access it readily. Makeup lovers want to be able to see everything they so that they use everything they have and get the most out of their investment. In stands, trays and regular drawers it’s easy for things to go missing, but with ShadowRacks, everything is on display and ready to be used.
