As I continue my professional journey, I like to think of my career as one big learning experience that continuously grows with each project and collaboration. With a dedication to functionality and a curiosity for what’s ahead of the curve, I keep my work practical, relevant and creative. I have a passion in both fitness and gaming as well as a strong interest in minimalism in design which I try to incorporate into my projects.

Move fIT

Move fIT is a desk top exercise reminder always by your side to promote healthy movement and awareness. Keeping healthy is an important factor of life. Regular intervals of exercise help to keep the body and mind fresh and healthy. During the working day, the regularity of exercise is often overlooked. Office workers can spend up to 6.5 to 7 hours a day sat down, in front of a screen. Move fIT aims to break these long periods of being stationary through small bursts of exercise.

Through appropriate alerts, the device will light up and vibrate to notify the user. The user then disconnects the portable device from the charging unit to complete the necessary exercise. There is no need to worry, the flashing light will only disappear upon re-connection. This means all of one’s movement will always be recorded and uploaded. Upon returning the device to the charging unit, all movement will be logged and stored on an IoT based server.

It aims to create an inclusive atmosphere within an office environment through leaderboards offering incentives to those who use the device accordingly. Offering incentives for completing undesired tasks uses the technique behavioural change. This aims to alter the attitude towards completing mundane tasks with the ambition that it will become a voluntary action through repetition. A fully interactive mobile application allows the user to fully experience all aspects of the product. Customisation of the device settings helps to create an inclusive feel ensuring that the user is more involved.

Al-lumination

Al-lumination. A subtle designer light for outdoor and indoor use. Born through aluminium extrusion, Al-lumination is both durable and desirable as well as remaining environmentally conscious.

Aluminium is one the most easily recycled materials, with around 70% of original aluminium still in circulation. This gives the product both a resourceful life and after life. Extrusion specializes in material waste reduction and high accuracy parts. The shape of the light would be harder to achieve with such effect through alternative methods of manufacturing.

Al-lumination addresses the market that lacks a multipurpose light. Attach the light to the floor, wall or even ceiling. The lighting module is even portable and can be removed from the base where it is wirelessly charged. Around 2 hours of light can be sustained whilst disconnected from the dock. The light is then charged through a low power micro USB connection and can be toggled off and on through a touch sensitive switch; simply tap the outer shell of the light.

This product is targeted at homeowners who would like to add a level of minimal sophistication to their home, either indoors or outdoors. However, there is no limit to where this light can be placed. Standing at 230mm, there is really no area where it would look out of place.
