I enjoy paying particular focus to the fine details that transform an idea from concept to reality, I strive to create outcomes that are both effective and visually impactful. A year working in the high-end furniture industry allowed me to refine these skills in a professional manner.

ZipZ is a collection of tactile stimulating tools designed to aid the focus and concentration of ADHD adults. For ADHD individuals, fidgeting is a necessary action that helps to increase productivity through better focus. Currently, the fidget toy market is saturated with gimmicks, and cheap toys. Due to a huge level of stigmatisation, adults working in a professional setting are left without a viable tool to help them concentrate. ZipZ aims to take a subtle approach, designed to pass as an abstract desk ornament. ZipZ provides an alternative solution that allows ADHD adults to fidget without risk of worry or embarrassment.
