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.

Education 2010-2014 Industrial Design and Product Development Engineering Degree (Mondragon Unibertsitatea, Mondragon, Spain).

Studies centred on gaining knowledge and competences based on nowadays society’s real problems project solving methodology.

Achieved skills: -Ability to create new technically and economically viable products, services or concepts that will add value to companies and market, dealing with the users’ needs.

Courses 2014 october-present Website making and publishing course (480h) (Zubeldia ikastegia, San Sebastian Spain).

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.).

at HOME

1-The bigger a family is the more effort they do for saving water

73%

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.

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

ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS

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

Distribution

Motivating Factors

Do not use serigraph Packaging: use of recycled materials, reduce packaging weight and used materials. Green transport Reduce environmental impact

External Factors

Internal Factors

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

RECYCLING

Use or utility

End-life system

Better material quality for increasing product’s life. Innovation:Kefir New uses: make other products, ease cleaning, new forms for heating ...

New ideas

*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.

Moreover, Keflora gives the opportunity of choosing the desired yogurt quantity and it does not need any energy source for working.

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.

2nd prize

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.

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.
