ABOUT ME My name is Gearoid Cronin and I am an Irish product design student studying in the Dublin Institute of Technology. To me, good design is more than solving problems and developing beautiful experiences, good design is a way of life.
Capture the Action
Focus to preference
Record or photograph
Preview on screen
CONCEPT The development of a brand new action camera stemmed from an evident inability to easily transition from quick, automatic recording to stable, thought-out photography. The concept here was mainly focused on an available manual focus ring if the user felt the need to use it.
The action camera is an update to the numerous existing action camera solutions that are currently available on the market. This camera includes a rotating screen, a record button that can be accessed from the front and back as well as a timer. The lens on the camera extrudes 20mm from the body and contains a manual focus ring for adjusting the focus for a short or long range video.
Love for uniformity
Set up Marker
CONCEPT The Marker Speaker system began as a wish for an aesthetic solution that combined crisp audio with clean, sleek and uniform design. Inspiration came from the Marker hotel in Dublinâ€™s docklands with itâ€™s angular ceiling, clean white finish and ultra-modern aesthetic.
PRODUCT The Marker Speaker is an audio system designed to compliment the needs of people who wish to maintain consistency in their area of work, whether that be in the home, office or studio. The system includes a single speaker module and two handles to mount on the top and bottom. Additional speaker modules are mounted above the base.
CONCEPT The theory behind the development of the Mist refreshment system was the stress that people often build up when performing taxing jobs. It is unfortunately common for many people to be unable to leave their place of work for some quick exercise if there is a build up of stress. If a quick walk isnâ€™t possible, then another solution is evidently needed.
SOLUTION Mist is a simple system that incorporates high pressure air and water jets in order to create a refreshing feeling and instant revitalisation. It is completely self contained and utilises an easily replaceable cartridge to provide the high pressure water and air.
CHILDRENâ€™S Flexible Fun
Friends have Bikes
Switch to Bike
CONCEPT You have been asked by a client to design a wheeled vehicle for children aged 6-8yrs. The vehicle is for an individual child and it should be powered or propelled by the child, i.e. without electronic components. It should also be designed with safety and usability in mind. The client is looking for elegant and interesting design solutions that kids and their parents will love.
PRODUCT The Duo was developed to address the needs of young children and play. The Duo is a combination of a scooter and bike. By flipping the vehicle, the child can choose which method of propulsion that they prefer. Five total wheels means that there is no assembly required and safety is drastically increased. A single axle is used for both forms of steering which reduces the number of moving parts and increases durability.
