Portfolio Case 
A seven-inch stainless steel cube that unfolds to present my three dimensional projects. The work is presented on 4" x 5" chromes that sit in a compartment on the left side. When viewed, the chromes move on to a small lightbox in the center, then over into a right side compartment when finished.
