The Story Behind blink blink

We met in grad school at Parsons MFA Design & Technology program where we both fell in love with all things code, wearable tech, and soft-circuits.   At Parsons, women were falling in love with making and engineering by creating arts, crafts, and fashion projects with technology.  “Why didn’t we come across this earlier?” kept running through our minds.  This inspired us to design an experience for girls to explore making and crafting with technology and art.  We started off by hosting soft-circuits (conductive thread, conductive paint, LEDs & more!) workshops which led us to co-designing the blink blink kit with girls.

blink blink creative circuit kits are designed for  girls to make wearable tech, arts, and crafts projects.  We’re providing an alternative entry point to mainstream maker and hacker culture and think of blink blink as a fun and spunky avenue to make, craft, and play with circuits while having fun!
