The Thug Jug™ design is heavily influenced on personal childhood experiences. So I thought
it would be best to revisit childhood areas where I most likely would of had a fruit barrel drink.
Take a trip down memory lane with me.
The Goodyear Heights Metro Park has one of the biggest hills I've ever seen. During the summer,
my brother and I would go to this park and roll down this hill. It was also perfect for sledding.
Whenever my brother, friends, and I visited the Metro Park we always found something new.
This trail of trees is located where some of our soccer games were held.
Basketball consumed much of my life growing up. I spent many days at The Reservoir preparing
for basketball tryouts the summer before I attended St.Vincent-St.Mary high school. All those long
days payed off because I made the team.
From K-8th grade I attended a private school called St. Anthony of Padua. Before this playground
was added recess was spent playing games like freeze tag and four square. This school impacted
my upbringing and is partially the reason why I became interested in design today.
Tree of Youth
I lived in Goodyear Heights a good portion of my childhood. This tree has been at the park
for as long as I can remember. It's located right next to the playground, so it was a hotspot
for kids to hang at if you were able to climb it.
