Building on the success of the original wishbone, Benebone wanted to develop a new dental chew that would not only be great for a dog's dental health, but also be fun and stimulating so they would play and chew for hours.
The new chew is made of the same great stuff as the original but has a new ergonomic shape. Curved in two directions, the dental chew rocks back and forth no matter which side is up keeping your pup's attention for longer. The ridged areas help clean dogs teeth as they chew and provide lots of grip for play. The open holes make it easy for dogs to pick up, and provide a great spot for you and your pup to play tug of war.
The Benebone Rocking Dental Chew is available online and pet stores nation wide.
Portable, Cable Free Charging
Stow was created to improve the currently poor experience or charging one's smart phone on-the-go. Phones are constantly getting slimmer and sleeker but charging them still involves tangled wires and bulky USB converters which fit awkwardly in a pocket or laptop bag.
Stow has a flat, seamless form when closed that hides all electrical connectors and fits with Apple’s clean design aesthetic. Wide enough in the center to fit essential components but incredibly thin on the edges, Stow has a very thin appearance and easily slides into a pocket or bag. When opened, Stow plugs directly into a wall outlet and provides a dock area to securely hold and charge an iPhone. No need to carry any cables or bulky USB bricks.
DOGS CHEW GOOD
The Guys at Benebone noticed that a lot of people give their dogs flat plastic bones that dogs have a hard time interacting with. Unable to easily get their mouths or paws around them, they have a hard time getting these toys up off the floor and often times loose interest.
The Benebone Wishbone was designed with dogs in mind from the start to be paw friendly. With it's curved design that helps dogs get a hold of it and deep grooves for great grip, dogs spend less time struggling and more time playing and chewing. Real food like Bacon and Peanuts are co-molded with food safe nylon to make the bone irresisatable to dogs and also extrodinarily durable.
Pizza Hut's Wingstreet brand needed a new to-go container for their wings that would not only improve on their existing packaging but also solve a space issue in their restaurants kitchens. The large steel bowls used to sauce their wings took up a lot of valuable space, Wingstreet wanted a solution that would let them sauce the wings in the to-go container itself saving time and kitchen space.
The final product is a nod to those same steel mixing bowls. The tight seal and carefully placed hand grip mean the wings and sauce can be safely tossed in the package, thoroughly coating the wings, without any leakage and without needing to clean or store any extra bowls. This also has the benefit of making the container leek-proof for the customer and retain more heat than the previous packaging. The raised section at the container's base keeps the wings separated from the extra sauce meaning they'll never get soggy.
The to-go container is now in use at Wingstreet locations across the nation.
ONA was looking to create compelling imagery for a new camera bag they were designing for use with the legendary Leica M camera system. They had the design of the bag already laid out but needed help bringing the concept to life to sell their vision. Design sketches were created in a loose style to help tell the story of a rich leather bag which has the high level of quality and craftsmanship worthy of the Leica name. The end result was the beautiful Berlin II Camera Bag.

This project was a refresh of an excising halogen track head which used a 'slanting' body element to house the lighting driver. The objective was to update the product for use with LED applications as well as update the appearance to communicate the new high efficiently light source inside.
Pet products live in the home and while many work well, most are eyesores paying little attention to people's wants when it comes to style and design. PET is a series of concepts for a new line of pet products which not only cater to the pets that use them but to their people as well. Blending innovative functionality with simple clean styling, these products are meant to work great and look great in the home.
When environmental regulations forced the use of a new larger engine in the 4X drill, it was an opportunity for the manufacturer to update the functionality of the bodywork as well. Previously getting the "hood" off to access the engine was a very cumbersome and time consuming process. A functionality overhaul made the drill easier and faster to service and offered the owner added security over the previous model. The aging graphics were also updated to a bolder look which better communicated the purpose of the drill.
