About Jennifer Darmour
Jennifer Darmour’s entrepreneurial and design spirit has inspired her toward many start-ups and emerging software and design companies, focusing on inventing products and services for next generation user experiences. She first began investigating wearable technology while in graduate school at Art Center College of Design where she designed a collection of projects that explored wearable computing, soft textiles, and the aesthetics of circuitry as our second skin. Since then, she has been living in Seattle and working at Microsoft and currently Artefact where she has been designing award-winning on-body and technology products for companies such as Xbox, Microsoft Surface, Windows Mobile, HTC, Blackberry, Google, Lenovo, Panasonic, Sonos, and American Eagle. Jennifer also blogs and runs electricfoxy, which explores new interaction paradigms applied to on-body experiences that are beautiful, wearable and connect with software and services.
Clothing is a core part of our expression and offers ways for us to communicate who we are and the context in which we live. Technology enables a richer connection with people and our environment and offers a new platform for communication, expression and wellness.
By merging the intimacy of clothing with the empowerment of technology, electricfoxy strives to enhance our lives by offering a much richer language for self-expression, improvement, and healthy living.
As an outcome, rather than simply attaching technology to clothing, electricfoxy investigates on-body experiences that are beautiful, wearable and connect with software and services resulting in a new aesthetic of form and behavior that become a core part of our expression, our identity, and our individuality.
