BSc Product Design
I am a designer driven by problem solving. The products I create tackle real issues and my design decisions are highly intentional. I strive to enhance the lives of those around me through technical and functional solutions, whilst still highlighting the beauty in their purpose.
In 2022, South Africa experienced 205 days of rolling blackouts which have continued into 2023. These shutdowns can impact the entire population but poorer areas are disproportionately affected.
Not having lighting is one of the main struggles faced during these blackouts, causing unnecessary stress for the household.
Glow provides an environmentally friendly alternative form of lighting for use throughout the home. It's intuitive, simple design invites use by all members of the family, from the elderly to children. Its functional possibilities are endless, from nightlights to desk lamps to torches, Glow makes difficult situations slightly easier for all involved.
