Project created in undergraduate course "Designer as Author" Prompt: To create and design a product as a potential Kickstarter project. The Roy Board is a redesign of the equipment for a water sport my grandfather used to perform. The sport involves skiing behind a boat on a stool atop a round disk. The red set pictured (right) is the original set of my grandfather, Roy Harrell. The Roy Board would be produced by "Lakeware," a company which creates uncommon lake products. "Backer Rewards" include a koozie, t-shirt, towel, innertube, and Roy Board patches. 2013.
