Kristy Soto | Portfolio 2
About me
Hello, I'm Kristy Soto, a 20-year-old designer from Columbus, Ohio. My design inspiration
is drawn from the people and world around me. During my sophomore year in college, I
discovered my passion for research, particularly in the social aspects of design. Coming
from a bustling Mexican restaurant, I thrive in social environments, connecting with
people and understanding their needs. Let's create meaningful experiences that bridge
design and human connection.
Skills
Software
Proficient in Adobe Illustrator, Indesign, Photoshop, Solidworks, Procreate and Keyshot.
Prototyping
Prototyping and model making with laser cutter. As well as Woodshop Tools with various
types of foam, cardboard and wood
Experience
Cozumel Mexican Restaurant
Throughout all my 4 years in high school, I gained versatile experience at my parents'
Mexican restaurant, excelling as a hostess, waitress, and manager. As a hostess, I
mastered computer systems, managed seating, handled orders and payments, and
resolved issues. As a waitress, I efficiently managed tables, took orders, bartended, and
ensured exceptional customer service. In my managerial role, I led restaurant operations,
addressed customer concerns, handled cash closeouts, and trained new staff,
contributing to operational efficiency.

Kristy Soto | Portfolio 6
Inspiration of form and aesthetic
Stillness Mindfulness Simplicity
Kristy Soto | Portfolio 7
Often employed in ritual
practices, Zen Gardens serve
as tranquil spaces for
connecting with nature,
offering a serene environment
characterized by profound
silence.
Singing bowls are commonly
employed in meditation practices
to enhance relaxation. The gentle,
rounded shape of these bowls is
renowned for instilling a sense of
balance and unity.
The simplicity inherent in the
circular patterns of Zen gardens
fosters a clear mind, enabling
individuals to fully embrace the
present moment.
Shape Exploration
Shape for design
Using the shape of sound bowls and patterns
within zen gardens to create new designs
Foam exploration
Foam mockups were made to help better
understand the final overall shape of the bowl and
the sand patterns within the bowl.
Extenders
Zen gardens initially feature decorations such as
rocks, with the original idea to have those be
extenders. However, opting for a separate device
allows for a cleaner less cluttered feel.

Rocky
Shoe
Non slip restaurant

with rocky boots
Our Goal
Design a non-slip server
sneaker that is water resistant,
comfortable to stand in all day,
providing an alternative to
bulkier, less attractive non-slip
shoes.
Kristy Soto | Portfolio 22
Issues to address with current non slip work shoes
Clunky design Slippery sole Hard to clean

Outdated designs
Unattractive with
uniform
Water-resistant soles
are not enough for
dirty kitchens
Busy times call for
even dirtier floors
with oil, food, or
water
Fabric materials or
cheap leather soak
up food
Servers are required
to keep uniforms
clean
Why Rocky?
Unique soles
Rocky makes soles resistant
to oil and water, perfect for
messy kitchen floors
Durable materials
Rocky excels in crafting
durable boots, ideal for busy
servers
Hassle-free cleaning
Rocky offers waterproof
materials, ideal for servers
when dealing with potential
food messes
