Temple’s new design incubator, The Hatchery, is bringing student designs to market, literally. You can buy the products they designed and manufactured this weekend and next at the Hatchery’s first pop-up market, as part of DesignPhiladelphia.

“We are turning projects into products and giving them life beyond student portfolios,” said Bryan Satalino, a professor at Temple’s Tyler School of Art who runs the incubator.

For the first incubator class, Satalino worked with his fellow professors at Tyler’s Graphic & Interactive Design department to handpick three students, or “hatchlings,” to participate. The incubator, a semester-long independent study, teaches students about entrepreneurship and manufacturing (they use Tyler’s Digital Fabrication Studio, equipped with 3D printers, a vinyl cutter, an embroidery machine and a laser cutter), Satalino said.

Student products this semester include a wooden iPhone case engraved with designer-friendly information, a minimalist chicken-shaped clock and an apparel line. Also on sale at the pop-up market will be the Hatchery’s “Seedling Projects,” or products designed by students in various Temple design courses. Those include “Greetings from the Wilds of Philadelphia” postcards featuring city animals in their habitats and typographic temporary tattoos.

Next semester, the program will continue with three students. Satalino is also working on developing a Hatchery class.

The Hatchery was the brainchild of Stephanie Knopp, head of the school’s graphic arts and design department.
