Our Creationeers were at it again, preparing products & packaging for another IHHS 2016!

There are always projects keeping designers, engineers, prototype builders and other busy bees buzzing at Inventionland. When various trade shows come around, like we mentioned in a recent blog post, things do really get kicked into high gear!

Today might be Leap Day, but it also kicks off what we may deem as International Home + Housewares Show-hype week! That’s right. The International Housewares Association (IHA) kicks off their largest housewares industry trade show this Saturday, March 5th in Chicago and our friends at Jokari/US, Inc. and Love Cooking Company will be there showcasing all of their most innovative products – many of which were Inventionland-designed and packaged!

Designer Tess and Michael, Special Operations and photographer, were recently busy in the studio taking photos for Jokari product packaging.

Tess not only directed the shoot, but also stepped in to model the ease of use for the products as needed for a few in-use shots.

This wasn’t Tess’ first time in the spotlight. Here, you’ll see her demonstrating the Quick Cut, another product that’s headed to the housewares show.

Every unique Inventionland set within our 61,000 square-foot invention factory has been buzzing with excitement in preparation for the IHA Show. Industrial Designer Sarah took a moment to use the embroidery machine in Inventionland’s Crafty Cottage while Seamstress Bev kept busy at her sewing station.
