real beautiful water

Project Brief

Develop a family of three products that are aesthetically and functionally har-

monious. I chose to work with Beau, a bottled water beverage company, to restore the market they are losing due to increased environmental concerns.


Beau, a bottled water industry leader, is in a very powerful position, but is also

under increased scrutiny and criticism. With their sustainability in question, I’ve created a product family consisting of nature-based household water filtration products to further Beau’s goal of great tasting water and reducing their impact on the earth.

Project Brief

Design a mobile communication device, which embodies brand character-

istics and create a product extension for this brand that could conceivably have one of this type of product in their product line. I chose to create a product for who doesn’t currently have a physical product.


Vibe helps singles across the world find the kind of relationship they’re look-

ing for. The product accomplished this by extending a physical product to


People who are interested in dating but don’t necessarily have the time.


A physical product that users can take out into their everyday lives and find

the relationship that they are looking for when it is convenient for them.


members who rarely have time to update their online profile. The product

solely rely on the Internet. With the vibe, potential matches are instantly accessible for a tangible interaction. The vibe is designed to exploit the act of meeting someone. The only way to really get to know someone is meet him or her face to face.

Dating shouldn’t be stressful. By creating more opportunities for users to

You walk into a bar and sit down for a drink. You’re interested in meeting a potential match tonight, so you take out your Vibe and send out a “looking for a match notification.”

Your Vibe vibrates and glows pink after you receive a wink from Stephanie along with her picture. Now that you have verification that Stephanie is interested in you, it is time to meet her.

Stephanie, who has similar interests to your own, also uses the Vibe. reasons that Stephanie is a potential match for you, so she is notified that you’re looking for a match. As her Vibe glows pink and vibrates, a picture of you appears on her screen and she has the option to either “send him a wink” or ignore.” Stephanie winks at you!

You walk up to Stephanie and you introduce yourself. By meeting face to face with her and having a conversation, you are both instantly able to verify personality traits that may take months on the Internet to figure out.

a pink glow from the core of the Vibe indicates a new notification
