What if you could wear glasses that help you understand a famous identity?

My name is Mike Herbert, and I am a senior undergraduate student at Columbia College Chicago. This is a culmination of my two majors of Film and Product Design.

I've always been extremely curious about aesthetics, and as design and story telling has become more of my driving passion, I wanted to discover why we love certain styles or forms. Have you ever wondered why a certain object is your favorite?

I've been passionate about Cadillacs since I was a kid, and first fell in love with them while pouring over an old car book full of '50s cars with fins and chrome. Ever since, I've wondered what made that brand, that aesthetic and that style so intriguing.

And so began my journey through the Cadillac Glasses Project.
