Industrial Design and Product Development Engineering PORTFOLIO
(+34 610 940 720
Personal Information I am a recently graduated Industrial design and Product Development Engineer at Mondragon University (Basque Country, Spain). I am an active, positive and cheerful person who loves learning new things everyday, travelling, nature, meeting new people, knowing about other cultures, habits and ways to understand life. I enjoy practising outdoor sports, sewing, dancing and listening to music. I believe in design as a powerful tool that cultivates the interaction between user and product so as to deal with our society needs and improve life. Last year I was fortunate to have the chance to develop my Bachelor thesis at CPH Inventures A/S, Copenhagen (Denmark), where I was responsible of the airports’ transit area trolleys’ parking unit redesign. This was a very rewarding experience due to my personal and professional growth. The aim of this portfolio is to show a selection of some projects that I have developed during my university years so as to be part of Umeä University’s “Interaction Design” programme.

Saver allows reusing the water of the sink in the WC making use of the pressure diﬀerence between the Saver tank’s inside and outside pressure. This product is viable, simple, easy to use and eﬀicient. Moreover, it allows saving 20 litres per user a day. The main goal of this project was to design a product that would deal with the World’s water shortage problematic by 2020. Therefore, Saver has been design so as to make the society aware of the necessity of preserving natural resources, eco-friendly (sustainable lifeclycle, sustainable materials and non electric powered mechanism) and to be comfortable for everyone (taking into account its user friendliness). My work: water situation research, state of art of water devices, create concepts, 3D modelling and rendering. Team members: Enara Agirrezabala, Maitane García, Nere Karrera, Jon Lamborena, David Santamaría Fields: Design Research, Sustainable Design,
ANALYSIS Water’s situation Nowadays Although world’s 3/4 is water, only the 0,3 percent of the resources are usable, the 97,5% is salted. Moreover, water, which is a necessary resource, is the most used and vainly wasted (water leaks, the eﬀects of the climate changing, etc.).
1-The bigger a family is the more eﬀort they do for saving water
Near future situation It is said that water demand will increase 55% by 2050. Furthermore, the extreme precipitation changes would certainly decrease the nowadays water level and the greenhouse eﬀects would aﬀect negatively to the drinkable water level. Apart from that, the water needs will also increase as well as its price. In all likelihood, this will aﬀect to people’s behaviour and will create extreme situations in our society, increasing the chance for happening a real catastrophe.
Who saves water?
Where do we waste MORE?
2-Comunities where there is water deﬁcit
Other identiﬁed issues
1-Lack of hookable products for saving water. 2-Eco-tendencies are increasing. 3-People are becoming more concious about the environmental issues.

Keﬂora, Moulinex YOGURTEO” DJC1 41 yogurt machine’s redesign, is a non electric powered yogurt machine that uses Keﬁr** for making yogurt. The main goal of this project was to innovate in the concept of yogurt machines following IHOBE*’s eco-design methodology so as to reduce the environmental impact those machines have and reach their target consumer more eﬀectively. The reason for selecting a yogurt machine for the redesign was mainly their lack of success in the market and the identiﬁed possibility of attracting eco-consumers, a non-stop increasing consumer trend. As a result of this eco-design process Keﬂora was created. This yogurt machine is easy to use, to dismantle and clean as well as aesthetically attractive and made by recycled plastic. Thus, this eco-friendly product My work: part of eco-analysis of the yogurt machine, research for eco-design, create concepts, 3D modelling, usage. Team members: Enara Agirrezabala, Maitane García and Nere Karrera.

REASONS FOR ECO-DESIGNING
Unsuccessful due to...
Yogurt maker’s Life-cycle Improvement ideas from MET* .
Target consumer: families (is this one our target? ) Needed space
Extraction and consumption of materials and components
Select environmentally friendly product techniques
Lack of user-friendliness Factory production
Do not use serigraph Packaging: use of recycled materials, reduce packaging weight and used materials. Green transport Reduce environmental impact
Administration: WEE directive aﬀects the product
Consumer: Attract more consumers with attractive and successful eco-friendly products. Attract a wider target so as to increase proﬁts Environmental consciousness: To innovate so as to create sustainable products so as to reduce their environmental impact and footprint.
Market: Necessity to change the product concept, give importance to the yogurts’ increasing price, advertise the product and change the consumer target.
Materials: use of recyclable and biodegradable plastics, enable to recycle inside parts, use cables without PVC, and identify each material. Produce less unnecessary material
Use or utility
Better material quality for increasing product’s life. Innovation:Keﬁr New uses: make other products, ease cleaning, new forms for heating ...
*M: used material in each step E: energy used T: toxic emissions
CONCEPTUALISATION In the creation of Keﬂora concepts we focused on new aesthetic lines that will attract consumers as well as reduce the number of components and the homogeneity of used material. Diﬀerent geometries have been investigated so as to allow to reduce the necessary space needed for using it as well as to create an ergonomically user-friendly product.

DEVELOPMENT The product in detail
Moreover, Keﬂora gives the opportunity of choosing the desired yogurt quantity and it does not need any energy source for working.
Cone Cover 2
The material selected for all components has been the recycled PS. Despite the cone which is made of crystal PS, the others are made of HDPS. This reduced the material used.

The colours, green and white (nature and pureness), its simplicity and innovative shape makes Keﬂora diﬀerent from other yogurt machines. Moreover, the use of Keﬁr makes the yogurt healthier. Thus, this yogurt maker will be more attractive for consumers and it is likely to be successful in the market.

Add milk + keﬁr

pour the yogurt and serve yourself
Keﬂora’s cone shape’s makes pouring the yogurt inside to a vase and the cleaning easier. The volume is also reduced as well as its weight. Thus, it is easy to handle and use.

The main objective was to build an attractive product for making bicycle more perceptible so as to reduce accidents. This objective was achieved, due to the little light or the noise that Beyeux makes when someone is detected by the sensor inside it.

The aim of this project was to rebuild an existing fan so as to understand its mechanism. To know if the re-designed parts will fulﬁl their function, three of them where printed in a 3D printing machine and assembled in the real fan. An exploded view of the made parts, the new assembly and one of the moulding of the parts are shown here.

The objective of this workshop was to gain knowledge about people’s most instinctive and natural way of behaviour in diﬀerent situation so as to obtain useful insights to appeal people to park and get their trolleys in the airport. In order to gain these insights, some design games where used: the analogy game and the issue cards. The following is an example of the outcome of the analogy game. The presented layouts are analogies of the airport scenario.

Player 1: Green Player 2: Brown
Colour connection and placement on a limited place
Indicators: -Signs attraction or appealing -Colour connection -Does diﬀerences make people feel attracted?
Player 1: Pink Player 2: Pink Player 3: Red
Indicators: -Place: Stacking or freely located -Colour connection.
If not colour connection, normally they do not stack the Lego bricks. 3-Colour connection and stacking on the top
Lego bricks are used as trolleys. The players do not know about the similarity between the layouts and the airport scenario. A Lego brick is given to each participant per layout
COLOUR CONNECTION and CONVENIENCE attract. PEOPLE FOLLOW OTHER PEOPLE

Miluta design is the result of the collaboration between an industrial design and product development engineer (just graduated) and a service designer from the Basque Country that met each other in Copenhagen, DK, and decided to start designing and sewing by themselves. We try to create beautiful and original products such as purses, laptop covers, bags... without forgetting functionality. On the right there is an example of a laptop cover I did.
