I have developed ‘RAW’ a healthy pre prepared meal kit which allows consumers to have all the benefits of a healthy and fresh meal without all the hassle of sourcing the ingredients from different places and preparing it. The eco friendly carry case is designed so that the consumer can place each component in its allocated section; making up a meal without the need for a non bio degradable carrier bag.


Upon finishing my ‘RAW’ food project I decided to develop it further by creating an app prototype and turning it into the feature of a promotional video. I wanted to test myself by learning how to use the more advanced tools of Adobe premier pro and After effects such as green screen gestures and animations.


For the 2017 Competition In Plastics I developed a compact piece of hand luggage intended to be used by wheelchair users. The design is easy to access while sitting in the chair and is universal to fit most manual wheelchair models.


1 - Hold onto the handle

2 - Pull on the strap

3 - Ve l c r o w i l l release the bag from the chair

4 - Lift the bag gently onto your lap


5 - Open the top cover

6 - Remove or place your desired items inside

7 - Close the top cover

8 - Use the handle and strap to guide the bag back in place


The purpose of this brief was to design an electrical product that was ‘non literal’; meaning it had to look like it did something but it wasnt obvious what that was. I have aimed to convey a sense of interchangeability among this product through the fact its components are able to come apart; suggesting a rebuild using a different configuration. The holes on the front face could be interpreted to be used to connect other components together or to play sound or release scents (relating to the electrical nature of the brief).


Modular “Build it” Adaptable, Linked, Sectionable
