This week EngineerVsDesigner sat down with one of the guys who is ridding the world of peanut butter knuckles one screw thread at a time…Mr. Spencer Vaughn! Spencer is one of the engineers behind the viral hit ‘Jar with a Twist‘—a new take on packaging design that gives the user a constant ‘full jar effect’. We’ll talk with Spencer about how he and his team came up with the idea, how they developed and prototyped their idea, and would he grow cricket legs if given the opportunity?

We’ll be discussing:

  • Who are you Spencer Vaughn?
  • For the love of man, what are peanut butter knuckles ??!!
  • What was your development and prototyping process like?
  • Where will Spencer be in 5 years?
  • …and more!
