BSc Product Design
With my designs, I aspire to contribute to the development of user accessibility, experiences and product functionality. I aspire to work freelance after university, before setting up my own design consultancy.
Alleviating Urban runoff pollution - it starts with home filtration.
The aim of the project was to help alleviate an issue behind the U.N Sustainability Development Goal, 'Life Below Water'.
Targeting urban runoff pollution from human activity is how I would take this project into further development and ideation, eventually focusing on water filtration within the domestic setting after identifying a gap for innovating in user experience and accessibility in maintenance.
I chose this project as I have had a keen interest in Marine Biology and its eco-systems since a young age and this project aims to aid exactly that.
Re-Design and Re-Purpose of a Shoe Zone Trainer
The aim of the project was to design a cheaper trainer that is more suited to the current cost of living crisis. The design - which was modelled in virtual reality and 3D printed - also has a signifcant focus on sustainability.
I chose this brief as shoe design is an area that I have found interesting before, having completed a previous project in this area during my first year. After beginning by looking at shoes on the market currently, I began a traditional ideation, sketching and concept development process.
I was then introduced to VR modelling in Gravity Sketch which unlocked a much more intuitive CAD experience, and ultimately, allowed me to finesse my final design.
