From Objects to Heirlooms

Entrepreneur and cofounder of Makerbot, Bre Pettis, started Bre & Co. to create beautiful objects designed to become expressions of appreciation and connection. Since gifts are most meaningful when they’re imbued with a heartfelt story, Bre wanted this site to actively help people create these stories. He asked my team at UXanimal to design a carefully orchestrated set of workflows, interactions and visuals to gracefully support people through the sometimes awkward process of expressing appreciation and gratitude for one another.
