01 starpack

motor oil bottle

brief “using plastic as the primary material design a 5-litre pack for motor oil that allows easy dispensing of the contents without needing any separate utensils.�

the initial intent of my design was to be a single handled bottle with grooves and curves to provide the grip rather than a handle.

switch opens a vent allowing air to exit the bottle and therefore stopping glugging.

air out

unscrew and extend lid

double ha or just 1

andle allows for more control preferred handle hold.



business card shoe horn

brief design an innovative promotional product for less than ÂŁ2.50 based on 10,000 units. atention to materials used and environmental impact.

the model was made from stainless steel is the same size as a business card thus fitting into a wallet slot.

the cuts and holes in the product have been made to make the shoe horn more flexible, allowing the product to fit the shape of the shoe easily.


sleep matters a service that re-designs your room

brief for this project we made our own brief, I chose the following, “How does room layout and organisation affect peoples sleep.�




have an untidy bedroom


get only 4-6 hours sleep


say they don’t feel rested the next morning

the blue lines show what the room looked like before it was re arranged into the layout of the image in the background. this followed feng shui and hygge through bedroom design and layout.

feng shui provided a large amount of evidence for me to research into how room layout and organisation affected sleep. From here i was able to establish not only where the furniture in the room should be but also what additional products help improve sleep further.


wilko project bloxs apps

brief “design an innovative new product for the “blox” product range to be sold in Wilko store across the UK. the concept should be supported by in-depth research into your chosen field. - the concept should be gender neutral - the concept should be manufactured at a wilko price range - the concept should not be a kit or an existing product in competing brands”
