Gerry Mayer

Industrial Designer
Founder of GMAY3 Design
Chicago, Illinois, USA

Hi! I'm Gerry, and I'm a Designer, Maker, and Engineer. My whole life, I have been curious about how things are made and how we use objects and technology to interact with our world and each other. Raised by an Artist and an Engineer, I grew up feeding my creativity by building things and taking things apart, turning sketches into real working objects and I just can’t get enough! I have a passion for learning and I’m always working on projects and hobbies in my free time.


I graduated from Villanova University in 2012 with a degree in Electrical Engineering. In 2013, I started GMAY3 Design, an Industrial Design consulting company that I actively run in my mornings, nights, and weekends. Since starting GMAY3 Design, I’ve gained a ton of valuable Industrial Design experience, designing for clients such as GCW-Zero, Hooke Audio, and Microsoft.


I'm a self taught Industrial Designer and what started as a hobby quickly developed into a true passion. Through the power of the internet and the generosity of the ID community, I was connected with amazing teachers and ID professionals that challenged me and helped guide me on this path.


In Fall 2017 I will be attending the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Master of Design, Industrial Design program and I could not be more excited and thankful!


StereoSpace

 

StereoSpace is a portable, two part Bluetooth speaker that puts you in command of your music, wherever you go. Most portable Bluetooth speakers have internal speakers that are so close together, you are essentially listening to your music in mono. StereoSpace improves on this listening experience by allowing the listener to separate StereoSpace into two halves and set them up a few feet apart, in front of them. This positioning of the left and right speakers allows for a rich stereo music listening experience, allowing for a clear awareness of sounds coming from the left, right, and everywhere in between. With two separate auxiliary inputs, each StereoSpace half can be used as a mini amplifier for two musicians to individually connect their electronic instruments and have a mini jam session anywhere!
