"Hey man, wanna make some backpacks this summer?"
While Industrial Design students, Aaron Puglisi and Daniel Shirley bonded over their shared interest in soft goods. After an end of year sophomore rendering assignment, they spent the summer experimenting with materials and processes to bring Aaron's render to life. It was the very beginnings of what would become the Jet Pack.
After many "are you gonna do anything with these bags?" Aaron and Daniel dove into developing the concept into a functional bag and to take a shot at Kickstarter to raise the needed funds to mass produce the Jet Pack. Greg Christopher joined the team on the financial and business side of things.
