guitar pick wallet

Apr '19

This one was a doozy!

I went through a bunch of design ideas and iterations to get what the client wanted: a super sick trifold wallet that holds guitar picks.

The picks are held in place by a line of dried leather glue on the backside. I consider that a rare stroke of genius and a little peek at my redneck engineering background.

The rest of the pockets weren’t difficult, but time consuming as I hadn’t created an ID card holder or vertical pocket panel before.

This project also shows how I use the raw veg-tan from Tandy as a “cheap” prototyping material, and finish with Buttero from Italy. Swoon!

Ask me about:

  • Creative blocks and lack of inspiration

  • Guitar picks

  • Plastic-free ID card slot
