About Me

World be warned, a fanciful new industrial designer has hit the spotlight. My name is Adam Bradley. Born in a cozy town called Savannah on the southern coast of Georgia, I have been honing my skills at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Over the last ten years I have become fluent in the understanding of products and services, not only through my time at the University but also from working in the locksmith industry. I have designed everything from fitness equipment to chairs. I make products more ergonomic, intuitive, elegant, cost effective, and environmentally responsible to exceed customer expectations and give economic benefit to clients. I know how to build upon the foundation of products and businesses to enhance the service and experience that is being provided. I do all this by conducting research to brainstorm innovative solutions, which create meaningful experiences and brand loyalty for the target market. My goal as a designer is to create products that mature with the user and become more personable by interacting with them. I believe that the interaction of a service or product should be intrinsic to the user instead of the user having to adapt.

Wall Safe

Problems • Difficult to install • Not Intuitive to change combination • Boring box form • Traps humidity • Requires crouching or bending to operate • Dark Inside • Requires 2nd operation lever mechanism The purpose of this project was to fabricate a safe that was unlike any other on the market. I did this by researching the customers problems with existing safes, to develop innovative solutions.

Haiti Shovel

Problems • Disaster left landscape in ruins • Injured workers need ergonomic design • Require low cost to provide quantity • Disaster gave people muscle dystrophy

The purpose of this project was to create an ergonomically designed shovel that would help with the relief efforts in Haiti.

Adam Bradley Industrial Designer

18


Haiti Shovel Research Studied benefits and draw backs to different types of shovels.

Handle Handle is hollow and light weight

Snow Shovel Designed to support back pains Used as crutch and handle Garden Shovel

Made of steel

Less shoveling but each stroke is heavier Big Blade Wide blade so harder penetration but holds more

Must bend down to use shovel

Testing showed for each shoveling step what muscles were being used and how much stress a person applies to them.

Can grab handle for comfort Can hold shaft bar for comfort Long Shovel to decrease bending and back pain

Light weight Doesn’t hold much dirt Sharp point for soil

Step One Holding Shovel

Step Two Shoving into Ground

Step Three Picking Up Dirt By Pushing Down

Step One Throwing Dirt Away

Holds less than snow shovel Sharp tip for easier penetration of soil Step One Holding Shovel

Step One Step Four Step One Step Five Shoving into Ground Stepping on Shovel Pushing Down Throwing Dirt to Side

I utilized hand measurements for people in the 50th percentile. These anthropometrics helped guide me to make a more ergonomically designed shovel.

Haiti Shovel User Testing I am testing a shovel.

Coming up with different designs.

Prototype shovel for testing.

The angles in the handles relieved stress on the triceps and biceps while shoveling.

Adam Bradley Industrial Designer

Realized with longer shovel people had to bend less and relieved stress on the back.

Caring load with store shovel created stress, which our design helped alleviate.

21


Haiti Shovel Prototype

Made inexpensive and easily transportable shovel for Red Cross. The bag was designed to house the shovel and be able to carry the rest of Red Cross first aid products.

Adam Bradley Industrial Designer

The handles can be taken apart to make the shovel easier to transport. The bottom grip is adjustable. The top handle snaps in place.

22


Haiti Shovel Finished Product

The grips are rubber coated for comfort and prevent hands from slipping. The handles are angled to make the shovel easier to use.

Upwards angle relieves tension in bicep

Downwards angle relieves tension in tricep

Long shovel decreases stress and bend in back

Spade blade allows for easy penetration and holds large loads

• Teachers in North America throw away over 500 million white board markers a year.

Tooling for Marker

Tip injection molded

New Design • This marker is environmentally friendly and toxic free with no dioxin.

Body extrusion blow molded

• Made from post consumer recycled HDPE and can be recycled. • Uses Cyclic Alkylene Carbonates ink which is Xylene and Toluo free. • Environmental impact of this marker is 1/1000th of a typical white board marker.

• Parts snap into each other. Sleeve and eraser are epoxy onto body.

Stool

Problems • Requires low cost for production • Each stool needs to be mass produced in 45min • Needs to sustain load up to 400lbs • Should be astatically interesting • 1/3 of Americans are obese

The purpose of this project was to mass produce a stool. Each stool had to be welded in less than 45 min, by creating and using a jig.
