The pen compatible with multiple refills ORBIT is the rotating pen with minimalist design that provides the best writing experience with the best weight balance and proportion. The mechanical design makes ORBIT compatible with 60+ multiple popular refills.
Kickstarter project Intern project at Tronnovate Design Role in project: Lead designer
Extend the life of a pen It is a problem that people have bad writing experience with different kinds of pens and usually throw them away after pens run out of ink. Therefore, ORBIT was designed as a sustainable pen body compatible with 60+ multiple popular refills and also provides proper weight and elegant writing.
Sustainable Pen body
These are some of the design details as the inspiration to me while I was ideating.
For creative thinkers ORBIT was designed for thinkers and creators, recording your ideas anytime just by rotating the end to let the refill come out. ORBIT is perfect for thinkers & creators since it works well with different kinds of refills.
Best hold experience The pen pipe has to be 11mm in diameter for users holding.
Lathing & Tapping
M9.5xP0.5 牙深14.5mm 緊配 x3 pitch
9.5 M9.5xP0.5 牙深3.5mm 緊配
The biggest challenge was to adjust the dimensions of each components in order to make sure the function work. I had to take the variation in the lengths and diameters of different refills and the limitation of lathing and tapping in consideration simultaneously. Before design, I communicated with the manufacturer to understand the limitations of production. I also decided which model of the rotating mechanism worked ideally in advance. Then, I collected most of the popular refills and listed them in order of length. Therefore, I could work much more effeciently because I’d had enough information.
I built 3D model of each components by the steps and the way of the component being produced.

Jacket & Bag Transformed in Seconds Duoket is a Jacket+Bag design which can be a carry-on bag but also transforms itself into a jacket and is a necessary addition for anyone traveling from cold to hot or vice versa. The pockets remain the same between the jacket and bag meaning if you put an item in your bag pocket, it will end up in that same pocket for your jacket.
Kickstarter project Collaborated with Mininch
No more carrying an extra jacket or bag Every time when we are going out, we would trouble what we need to wear, and how to carry all essentials (wallet, keys, mobile phone, iPad, pens, notebook, sunglasses, small electronics, cosmeticsâ€Ś); we hurriedly grab a bag, move things from A to B to C. In addition, we may also consider taking a jacket or not, in case there's a sudden change in the weather or temperature drop. What a fuss!
The temperature varies much from day to night.
How will we simplify daily pack-and-prep?
When people move between outdoor/indoor environment.
Ideation & Prototypes I ideated different ways to transform jacket to bag and made rapid prototypes to test it. I studied how functional pockets be designed, and I did research on the pattern of jackets and bags,
Challenge Designing an apparel was totally a new field to me, so it was not easy for me to make my idea into functional structures. Therefore, I discussed the know-how with dressmakers frequently during the process. Finally I built a well-functioning model.
First version I finally built the first version of Duoket and it was designed for daily commuters. Fortunately, this design was picked by Mininich in the final presentation. After that, we started to develop Duoket together and I was responsible for design ideation and solution.
The journey of an idea getting onto Kickstarter Working with product designers and marketing person. 4 times prototying. Going through the implementation of bringing design into production.

Kidsâ€™ kitchenware Cookit emphasizes on food education, and we believe in the importance of kids' cooking. We offer a new way and designed tools for kids to cook at home. To give them a chance to experience the joy of cooking, and to discover their own ability within. Team project Role in Project: Creative Lead Project Manager In charge of sourcing
Let kids cook! There are a lot of research and examples stating that it is beneficial for kids to start cooking at a young age, they can gain food knowledge, develop the five senses, train their hand-eye coordination, and learn a life skill. Kidsâ€™ food education continues to gain attention throughout the years, and countries such as England and Japan have even established regulations towards food education. They emphasize on the necessity of including learning to cook into child education, and they urge kids to learn more about food and to cherish food. However, this is not a common practice in Taiwan. Also, existing products cannot truly fit the needs for kids to cook. Hence, most of the kids in Taiwan rarely have the opportunity to try cooking.
How can kids learn cooking thoroughly?
Stand in kidsâ€™ shoes
We discovered the difficulties when kids were cooking with no suitable tools. We interviewed with some educators and experts to know the importance of learning in cooking for kids. We also collected the opinions from parents to understand what they cared.
n r e c n o c e w s e l o r 3 Kids
We generalized the thought from kids, parents and experts in cooking and child education. We considered these 3 roles in our design.
Wash - Prep - Clear - Cook - Clean

Integrated drain disk Stabilize different food
Kids human factors
We developed a rapid circle of brainstorming ideas and prototyping to make sure that the concepts had the potential of being actually used. These prototypes were tested in many scenarios with different kids and were refined constantly.
Gesture guide Color psychology The color plan considers the mental development of kids. Yellow means the highlight. Dark Gray keeps kids from touching. Blue and Orange brings happiness and energy.
Color planning Kids are sensitive to color, so we distinguished the cooking process with different colors, cool colors as the prep section, and warm colors as the cook section. Also, we used a bright yellow as the guide for the tools.
Guide kids to intuitively hold tools with the suitable gestures.
Drain disk / Tool box Kids can develop responsibility in the process of cleaning their tools. Cookit can be tranformed into a drain disk after kids clean the utensils and finally be integrated to the tool box.
Functional chopping boards Place the board that you want to use close to yourself, and the other one upside down at the further end, to make the kids more focused on the area in use.
Habit of order
A place to temporarily place the tools, to minimize the chance of accidents.
The form stabilizes food and makes it easier for children to process food.
Suitable gesture Defining a safer, more stalblized gesture for kids to learn, to memory easily.
Motion guide line A guide line to help the kids learn the proper motion of using the knife.
Concentrate on Slicing guides The printed lines on the chopping board provides a guide to slice, also enhancing the training of hand-eye coordination.
Peeling and grating with horizontal motions reduce the danger that might be caused by the traditional multi-direction motions, and the corresponding chopping board offers more stability.
Stabilize grater Seperate peel
Cooking The cook section trains the kidsâ€™ ability to choose the more suitable tool to use. We summed up the cook section into four main tasks (to flip, to stir, to grasp, and to dish up), and most of the tasks can be done with either a spatula or a tong. The enough length of the handle prevents kids from touching the pan.
The enough length of the handle prevents kids from touching the pan.
Stir intuitively The shape of the spatula is designed to create the special angle for kids to stir food easily.
Fine motor training To accomplish more detailed motions, and to grasp and stir in smaller area.
Silicone component The silicone component in the center creates a depth while dishing up, without interfering the other motions.
This time, let kids be in charge!
A water-purifying bag PURE HIKE is an essential water equipment for hikers whick optimizes the water-use experience and simplfies the process by integrating the functions of filtering and drinking into one lightweight waterbag. Team project Role in Project: Creative Lead In charge of process
Background Water is the most essential element for hikers in the mountain that is highly related to hikersâ€™ health condition. In the journey, hikers should often find the water source around, get the water and filter it. It is also important to manage drinking in every hiking day. According to the research, we found that many hikers commonly had problems about water use. Many hikers got heat stroke or dehydrated since they didnâ€™t drink properly. Most of them had very bad experiences with the existing equipments.
How will we optimize the drinking experience?
Hard to clean
It is too heavy and bulky to carry too many water equipments.
Hikers often overdrink with the straw with the water bag. And it is unconvenient to drink with water bottles when moving.
Time-consuming Complex steps It takes time and many steps to filter water at the water source.
It is hard to clean the inside of the water bag and connected components.
Requirements We collect the problems hikers suffer from. We define the requirements and paint points which have to be solved.
