Jessica Archibeque

Hello, my name is Jessica Archibeque and I'm a Toy Designer that's passionate about the process of creating Preschool and Girl's Toys. I enjoy brainstorming, collaborating, and creative problem solving. My strengths are concept development, toy features, and 3D Modeling/Prototyping. I mostly find inspiration in the children that I work with. I’ve worked with and taught children for almost 10 years now. My passion is creating a better world and experience for as many children as I can and to bring a smile to their face. My career goals are to work for a company that’s passionate about what they do and encourages their designers to be innovative.

Luminescence (Preschool): Nighttime is never scary with Luminescence the bedtime friend that encourages children 3+ to overcome their fear of the dark by providing comfort and light.
Drama Queens (Doll Playset): The stage is set, let the show begin! Drama Queens are the dolls that come with their very own surprise playset built right in. The tabletop “dress theater” features dress up and hair play, but as always, your imagination is your best styling tool.
Finadables (Preschool Game): Grab a friend and work together to find some new animal friends with Findables the fun and addictive game for preschoolers. Designed to teach colors, prepositions and deductive reasoning. So easy to learn it will quickly become a family favorite.

Spencer Hook

Hi! My name is Spencer Hook, and I'm a fun and energetic Toy Designer that has a strong work ethic. I always had an interest in Toy Design, but mainly in the active and physical toys. I loved the idea that enables kids to get up and be active. It's why I loved being a camp counselor and in Boy Scouts. I'm open to new ideas. I invite challenges and struggles, which helps me improve my skills and abilities as an artist and person. My strengths are time management, sketching, paper prototyping, and concept development.

Mana Force: The tribal action figure line that shows the world of Hawaiian/Polynesian Culture. It shows the power of friendship; that love is more powerful than death.

Lauren Horzewski

I am a passionate, optimistic, and resourceful individual and am also adept at a variety of computer software and traditional hand skills. The close-knit and positive environment of Otis has allowed me to grow both as an artist and as an individual. Whether I’m working alone or collaborating with a team, I always carry a positive attitude and a patient mind. One thing I learned at Otis, which I’ll always take with me, is to always give it everything you’ve got. It’s better to push yourself to do your best, not because you are trying to be better than others, but instead, to be better than your past self and to create something that you’ll be proud of.
