I make dream in design. I fulfill myself in my dream, in the design world. As a student of Design Department, I gradually understand that to be a designer, I must have a different vision and a wide spectrum of life experiences. Therefore, I am always looking for new challenges, trying to have different experience, and making a lot of friends from different countries and in different fields. Being enthusiastic and diligent designers, I express my passion in design to illustrate human’s touched spirit and transform aesthetic into functional concept. I use my own way to requite this mother land where nourishes me with its culture and life style. I will always keep my faith with my original intention. Facing design, I will act like kids with curious thinking. Finally, I believe my designing life will be the most beautiful rainbow in my life journey.



Always keep innocent, curious, and faith”

Objective To get more understanding of my own culture, I want to look around this world. To fulfill my dream, I want to keep learning and exploring around this world. To be a great designer, I want to make myself involved in a very innovative environment. I believe if I have the opportunity to study in College for Creative Studies, I will not let myself down. In other words, I am confident that I will achieve further professional development with my great passion.

L i v i n g G r e e n product design for the elders

“Seniors also deserve green and healthy lifestyle� Background Recently, society is getting busier; people tend to have great pressure in their life. Therefore, people like to go out getting closer to the nature. According to the theory of horticultural therapy, it is good to stay around nature and green which can release pressure on people and even cure people from illness. Thus, I hope through the new way of gardening helps retired people to have better life. The design is based on the theory of horticultural therapy, thus I will explain the horticultural therapy and turn the idea into industrial product design which can let people living in the city have more opportunities to grow plants.

Research background Horticultural therapy Horticultural therapy is one of alternative medicines, healing people by plants and gardening (Kuo, Yu-Jen,2002). Objective With new design system, it meets the need of the elder’s life in both mental and physical way. The elder may have more interactions with people because of this new design system.


Pysical model showing the arrangement of the gardening class .

Observation Kaoshiung village:elders taking gardening courses Location: Shou-Ai village in Kaohsiung Observation date: 2011/11/11 pm 07:00 participants: 10~15 females aged 50~65


Observation process

-Use the projector and slides

-Introduce how to take good care of plants.

-The elder rush to choose their own materials.

Distribute the materials

Explain and demonstrate

Observation process

-The assistants prepared the plants.

-Therapist explained and demonstrated how to make a combination of plants


-The elders can make a an arrangement as they like, and then pour the soil in.


-To ask them what’s the name of the plants.

-They will get a reward if they have the correct answer.


“Get a sense of accomplishment and slow the aging effect� Design concept

The living space in the city is small, and the new indoor gardening equipment facilitate the growing plants for the elder and provide a leisure activity. The design help users to get a sense of accomplishment through gardening activities and slow the aging effect.


Main structure Gardening and exercising at the same time “Green Curtain� is a gardening device that users can do the gardening and exercise at the same time. By pressing the edge of the plants container user can adjest the hieght of the "Green Curtain" to suit different hieght of users.

Pressing it to adjust the height.


Prototype Use oil clay and PU to make those prototypes, and try to test them by inviting seniors.

Sketching Use fast sketching to produce many different forms of watering can in the same functions.

Design Limitation



Prototype of gardening scissors Useing oil clay and ABS board to examine the size of garden scissors and stimulate the scenario of pruning plants.


Testing Prototype Using prototypes condusts experiments and testing. We have to see if all the design were fit to ergonomics.


Details and features of the watering can 1 Fixed amount of water. 2 In the top of the watering can, there is a steal ball inside to prevent water comeing out. 3 The shape of the watering can is designed according to the human hands, which can be hold easily by users. 4 Users can observe whether the water comes out. Seeing the aur bubbles means that the water is filling in the pot; on the other hand, seeings no air bubble means that there is no water filling in the pot, so users can water the next pots.


raising point

Plants can absorb water from the bottom of the container.

Scenario of watering 1 Filling water from the top cover of the watering can. 2 Users water plants from the hole at the edge of the pots, which can remain the indoor space clean.


"Fixed amount of water. Don't worry about watering too much" 18

Details of garden shear 1 Trough observation, indoor gardening for shovel, we found that the function of moving earth occur more often than shoveling, so we design a shovel combined with splediding and shoveling. 2 The shape of the shovel can avoid soil splashing out. 3 The handle with 90 degree angle helps users hold the shovel easily and safely. 4 The shovel is made of plastic, which is lighter the elders. Therefore they can use it for long time uncomfortably.


Scenario of planting The process of transplanting your plants. 1 Now when you take a new plant home from the flower shop, take a good look at the tag that was on the plant. 2 Fill plant pots or containers with mix soil. 4 Place a pottery shard over the drainage hole of a clean container. Fill the container up to within 1 inch of fresh soil. 5 Place the plant and its container on its side. Support the plant in one hand and the container in the other. Gently tap on the side of the container to loosen the root ball.

"Soil is never sprayed out again!"


Concept of gardening scissors 1 Combined with a magnifying glass on the cover assist the elders when they cut the plants. 2 Through cutting plants, users can exercise the palm muscle by pressing the gardening shear. 3 There are skidproof vein on the garden shear and the handle is made of rubber which prevent the danger of slipping when people use it.

"Ergonomic design, less effort, safer and clearer" 21

Details of gardening scissors 1 Using magnifying glass to assist the seniors prunning plants. 2 Shape of the garden shear fit in with people's palm. 3 There is a cover design to protect the users from hurt by the blade of the garden shear. 4 Material of the garden shear is made of rubber which can enhance the friction between users and garden shear and avoid users from dropping it to hurt themselves.

troublesome Psychological Level


Concept We design ONE TOUCH for children. Recently, the number of children get diabetes is increasing. How to let children do their blood test by themselves and without the help of their parents becomes an important issue and this is the motivation of our design.

Simple operation Different from the traditional use of blood glucose complex process, using the design of internal organs, so that the use of ONE TOUCH becomes very simple. About Blood: The users simply press the center of the circle of ONE TOUCH, which will show the effect of blood collection. About Strips: The test strip will automatically pop up. Users can measure their blood glucose levels in the five seconds .

1 take out alcohol prep pad

2 clean the finger by useing alcohol pads

3 put the finger on the position

4 test paper pop up automaticaly

5 use different colors to shoe the user's status


On recovery Needles, test strips after use will automatically fall into the waste collection box 1 Needles: Users rotate 180 degrees the center dial, the used needles that will fall into the bottom of the collection box. 2 Strip: In the end of blood glucose testing, users simply press down gently strip, strip that will fall into the collection box. After the needles used in the collection box will be focused on, you can take it directly to the recovery of the entire box, avoiding the risk of needle stick injuries to be abandoned. The original box which should be discarded, turn into a box to collect discarded needles. Making twice uses is good for our environment.

no normal

near not normal


Presentation of blood glucose Measured blood glucose values, blood glucose positive central region to do the color change in the light of blood glucose levels, children can realize directly from the color of the case (for example, green is normal, red is not normal), but the actual figure will be recorded in the back of the screen , So that parents and physicians can know the condition of children.

"Check blood glucose by colors" 45

Storage box Have incorporated the function of alcohol cotton pad, so users do not worry about forgetting to bring the plight of cotton sheet.

To avoid the perticuliar looks Different from the general appearance of traditional medical supplies . Color planning of blood glucose meter makes it more lively and lovely. There is no more feelings of using medical products, instead, children know that when they use ONE TOUCH,what they do is something special and the way for protecting themselves.

Ceiling fan design

Design goal Different from the common design of ceiling fan. The new innovative ceiling fan is designed according to the following principle, "Originality","Green"and "easy to install".



Mood Board warm quiet meditation nature clean


Design concept The fan is made of Taiwanese bamboo manufacturing, which greatly reducing the weight of the fan causes lower energy consumption to save energy. The ring structure of the fan is not only beautiful, but also quiet by applying the principle of the track effect. The fan coordinates with the wind flow with the arc of rotation to lower the temperature.


Ceiling fans internal axis is not perpendicular; the angle with the inertia effect can make the fan keep operating to save a part of energy.


The bottom part of the fan is spherical; the position of the motor is at the center of the fan, so when the blade rotates it would not rub the shell so the fan stays quiet when it operates.

Stucture Analysis The ceiling fan operating clockwise in summer with adjustable speed makes gentle breeze. The ceiling fans can also coordinate with air-conditioning, and enhance indoor cold convection efficiency, which saves 35-40% energy. The ceiling fan operating counterclockwise in winter, people feel no wind, but it can enhance the indoor heating natural convection efficiency and save energy to improve indoor living environment. Assembly of simple and intuitive concept, users can install the ceiling fan on their own, without the help of decoration workers.

Trash Can*3 Product Design Course NCKU ID Design Exhibition

"No more dirty Only Interesting "


R CAN Taiwan

Concept This design concept of “curve trash can” is to provide its users a convenient way to use “vest” plastic bags as garbage bags to protect our environment. And, also with its flat shape users can clean the trash can with no effort. Users can easily bring it where they want. There is a category of plastic bags which are often used in a great quantity in Taiwan; we can see it in the traditional market very often.In a consequent I use the pattern of the traditional plastic bags as the pattern of this “hook trash can”.

"Portable Flat trash can Fit any size of plastic bags." 57


prototype testing the materials and the shape of combination

scenario 1 use latches to make it stereoscopic 2 hang on the plastic bags 3 hooks on the edge solve the problem of different sizes plastic bags and also allow plastic bags to be hanged on the trash can


2 3



Concept "Dropping" trash can's curves on the edge make most plastic bags we had fit the trash can. The shape of the trash can is from the image of oil paints bucket.

"Turn the paint into trash can." 59


Motivation Due to the awareness of environmental protection, nowadays, people will use plastic grocery bags as garbage bags. However, there are many differing sizes of plastic grocery bags which cannot always fit the trash cans.

" Let's make some splash!" Concept In order to make most plastic bags fit the trash can we had, I propose the idea. The shape of “Spray” provides users a function of hanging plastic bags. ” Spray trash can” also encourages people to save our environment by making reuse of plastic bags.
