BSc Product Design

I am passionate about inclusive and user-centred design. I believe design should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their ability or background. Placing the user at the center of the design process, I strive to create solutions that are intuitive, easy to use, and meet the needs of diverse audiences.

For individuals with visual impairments, distinguishing between two objects while chopping can be challenging. Creating colour contrast between two products can significantly improve this.
Contrast is an inclusively designed chopping board system developed to solve this problem. The dual-sided, multi-colour boards provide high contrast against the food being prepped, ensuring a safer experience. With six colour options available, users can maximize their food selection while maintaining high-contrast visibility while chopping. The boards are situated and housed in a sleek storage case, featuring a different texture from the boards for both colour and tactile differentiation. The magnetic food container at the back allows for easy transportation of prepped food to cooking appliances enabling a streamlined user experience.
