Cas Holman developed her imaginative approach to design while growing up in the foothills of the Sierras, where plentiful sticks and mud made for endless possibilities. She stayed in Northern California to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Feminist Theory and Fine Art from the University of California at Santa Cruz. Later, she travelled east to pursue a Master of Fine Arts in 3D Design from Cranbrook Art Academy. Holman is currently a Professor of Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design and has spent the last ten years immersed in play, education and imagination. Through her company Heroes Will Rise, she designs and manufactures tools for the imagination. These materials are manipulable parts and pieces which inspire constructive play, imaginative forms and cooperative interactions between people. Abstract in their identity, these tool/toys inspire children and adults to imagine the origin and story of the toy as well as how to use it. "What is it?" and "What does it do?" Are not questions but limitations.
