BSc Product Design
As a designer, I have ambitions to create a better world through the power of design. I want to contribute in a positive way to people's lives and help them through innovativation.
I want to fuse my design work with something that has helped me massively in my life. For me that's sport. As such, my aspiration is to design equipment for the top sporting teams in every sport.
EDU-Tackle - Educational Tackle Bag Attachment
EDU-Tackle allows the player to visually see where each body part needs to hit the bag and therefore teaches the correct tackle technique. As a result, this will help players to safely tackle in games and further reduce the amount of concussions due to incorrect tackle technique. Rugby has been a significant part of my life, however there is concern over the game dying out due to parents and players not wanting their children or themselves to get injured. Therefore, I wanted to create a product that would help reduce the amount of concussions in the game and build the confidence back into new players. Due to rugby being a contact sport, EDU-Tackle in not intended to stop concussions but to reduce the number of occurances as much as possible by learning the correct tackle technique.
Promotional Ribena Bottle with Collectable
My promotional soft drinks bottle is aimed at 7-14 year olds and includes a collectable wristband behind the label. Each label had a unique pattern that was linked to a country playing in the Qatar 2022 Football World Cup. The wristband was made of silicone and was also able to be transformed into an icon that could be put on display in the shape of the logo of the Qatar World Cup. This design was inspired by my childhood of collecting football trading cards and other collectable items, creating a drive to collect them all. I chose to recreate this idea for the World Cup and the chosen company as it is a popular drink with the target market and is also a drink that I felt required a commercial elevation. I strived to create a wristband that was good quality so it was able to be a product that can be looked back on in years to come and represent the memories of the Qatar 2022 Football World Cup.
