By studying product design I have been able to work with a strong sense of creative freedom, allowing me to build a kaleidoscope of new skills with each project. I am looking for opportunities to work with brands as I find storytelling to be one of the most enjoyable things not only in design, but in the world around us.

Dropple FMCG Blow Moulded Bottle 600ml Ironing Water

Market Research Ironing water: mostly purchased in supermarkets, infrequently bought, few options available, inexpensive for large quantity Consumer: typically over 35s, bought based on scent and to prolong appliance life Iron: comes with a 12oz plastic jug to pour water into it, an annoying extra step, jug is viewed as disposable - cheap plastic vessel does not match prospected lifespan of the iron

How can these issues be addressed with a contemporary outcome that entices new and younger customers to buy into the concept of ironing water?

I discovered that Headspace offers free subscriptions to certain people with specific jobs and I thought to introduce a product element for use in the workplace.

Ideation Circular forms aid successful mediaton. Stacked disks allow for sound to easily be carried from the speaker.

Modelmaking Iterative modelmaking was crucial for this project and the model had to be well scaled to mount on the wall.

Orange LED Beneath the speaker’s surface is 28 LEDs that illuminate one at a time. The length of time for the illumination to do a revolution signifies at what point they are in their meditation’ much like an analogue clock.

Looped Cable I saw these playful elements all through Headspace’s app graphics. As this is a wall mounted speaker I chose to celebrate the inevitably visibilty of this cable with a subtle but playful detail.

Bringing Headspace into the workplace

Giving businesses the power to provide their employees with the opportunity of wellness. A corporate speaker will be provided for communal use when a business purchases Headspace membership.

Deskspace can be used as a method of asserting a worker’s presence, in a meeting or communal work space.

Designing from Insights

“Meetings can quickly turn from very nerve wracking to incredibly boring, taking notes can just be something to do” James, (45, solicitor)

Mobile phones are able to be slipped into the elastic, making them ‘away’ yet still moderately available to the user. The pouch next to it is able to house a portable charger without the cable becoming untidy.

Designing from Insights “It’s great to have everything displayed so that I can see it, but I wouldn’t want everyone else to see what I have” Rebecca (32, financial analyst)

The left hand pouch offers privacy for certain items. Users can keep objects hidden as they don’t need to completely unfold it.

The Brief

Client Project Design a product and experience for London zoo that demonstrates the benefits of animals in captivity and raises awareness for global conservation issues.


The demographic with the largest opposition towards zoos and animals in captivity are milleneals, who are the target for this experience and product. Their only reason for visiting the zoo was to go on dates, which became the direction for design. An additional element of storytelling that came from research was the inscription on the wall, allowing me to create a narrative as to how these couples could create a lasting pleasant memory of the zoo.

Roger, 46 Michelle, 45

Tourists visiting London, visiting the zoo on their 14th wedding anniversary. Are happy to see animals in captivity as they can tell they are also happy living there. Were unaware of any conservation work done by the zoo.

Rob, 26 Val, 23

Met online 6 weeks ago, this is their fourth date together. Rob chose the zoo as it interesting and gives them something to talk about. Went on a date to the zoo when he was 16 also.

Cheryl, late 70s Feeds the pigeons 4 days a week, brings them either her own leftover bread or reduced food bought elsewhere. Talks to them and connects with them, they recognise her and that she brings food (mutual relationship).

Date Focussed Experience Design A date specific map, with pointers for couple oriented areas throughout the zoo.

Lovebird Points

Placed at quieter and more restful points around the zoo, will be love related information plaques. These will display lighthearted information regarding some of the zoo’s longstanding animal couples, as well as showcasing ZSL’s work for species diversity and extinction prevention.

It was important for me that the outcome of the service element encouraged conservation within the users. For a small donation the couple are able to snap off the first peg to plant in the zoo, encouraging biodiversity within the zoo and benefitting their insect ecosystem. The other two pegs are able to be snapped and shared between the couple, to stimulate plant growth in among their homes. These plants are seed producing, thus attracting a variety of bird species and benefitting local wildlife.

Seed Bring Snaps the zoo home by attracting new birds to your garden. Snap the pegs apart and plant in necessary spaces to stimulate biodiversity withing the zoo and at home.
