JONNA MÅRTENSSON My name is Jonna Mårtensson. I’m 26 years old and I just graduated with my Bachelor degree in Industrial Design from Umeå Institute of Design this June. I chose design because of the problem solving, the fact that one can never be fully schooled in the subject. I've always enjoyed challenges and I'm hungry for new lessons.
Designprogramme 2006 - 2009
When I'm not working with design I like to sew and be in the workshop.

THE FUTURE OF ICE CLEARANCE BFA Thesis 2016 BFA Y3 | Ten weeks | Spring 2016 What if we could reduce slipping accidents during winter and make ice clearance more ergonomic and easier in tight spaces? In collaboration with BDX in UmeĂĽ.
I think it's important that the product can adapt to different users.
INTERVIEWS AND OBSERVATIONS During my research I conducted interviews with people from the industry, working with ice removal on a daily basis as well as users removing ice at home. I also did tests with various ice picks to see what people felt was important for a good ice removing experience. It really takes time and effort to remove ice.
The research showed that the current methods are non-ergonomic, time consuming and causes severe physical strain. Products today lack any gripping surfaces, which are necessary to deal with friction and longer sessions. Today's ice picks can't be adjusted to accommodate various users. A change is desperately needed to improve the workers' daily routine.
WHOLE BODY DUE TO VIBRATIONS
Common pain occurrence with todays products.
The fast expanding cities of today only grow narrower
CONCEPT IDEA An electric ice pick with built in power. Hold it against the ground and press start to begin chopping. The job then is to move it over the ice surface so it gets everything.
In this way you donâ€™t get tired because the product absorbs most of the vibrations similar to an inpact drill. It also has an ergonomic shape and adjustable grip surfaces.
PEN AND FOAM SKETCHES
It is important to get a good grip even with gloves on. It's a really cold business.
I like that you can change the angle on the upper handle, makes it more adaptable and easy to use.
MOCKUP TESTS After working on the details I let different users try mockups of the handles on the overall shape, to see all the components together and try out angles.
The upper grip allows a span between 0 to 40 degrees, as this was found most ergonomic. For the lower grip it needed 25 degrees fixed to be comfortable and not put too much pressure on the wrist.

WHAT'S INSIDE ? The technology inside is shown in the image above. It chops using a motor to control a cylinder with cut folds and the two paralell blades goes alternately. Since it's following a path that gives a free-fall the last bit inside the cylinder gets more power for the chop.
This force go back and provides energy to the next chop. Theres also impact protection above the engine to prevent the vibrations from going up and into the user.
ADJUSTABLE GRIP SURFACES
My product has two different grip surfaces, one above and one below. The one below can be adjusted up and down by pressing the button.
The top one can be adjusted in an vertical angle. No angle at all means that you can have it against your body for support, especially useful in bigger areas.
BUTTON DEAD MAN'S GRIP
You can easily charge the battery when needed.
METAL BLADE The blades chopping the ice has removable metal tips, for the user to replace when worn. There are two parallel chopping blades; one chops at a time to convert the vibrations into new energy.
COVER It has an aluminum cover to protect the user from getting ice splashed onto them. It can also be rotated to function as a cover for the blades during transport or down time. You rotate it by hand when it's off.
I presented my Bachelor Thesis at Design Talk's in june. Watch my three minute pitch here: https://vimeo.com/170002913#t=1h05m33s
FUEL DISPENSER Concept Development BFA Y2 | Six weeks | Spring 2015 A project done in collaboration with BioFuel Region. 2014 they started a operation called BioGac who have supported development of biogas as a vehicle fuel. Our part in this project was to focus on the development of today's biogas filling stations .
The first time was a really bad experience. There were strange noises and a lack of information, I was very afraid of making mistakes.
It takes a long time to refuel. I need a minimum of 30 minutes just to refill my car! Even more if there is a bus gassing up at the same time! And it can be wery cold having to wait outside in harsh conditions.
RESEARCH Important problem areas - Difficult for 'first-time' users of Biogas. - Mixed information causes confusion and stress. - The area felt unwelcoming and dangerous. - Long waiting time up to 40 minutes.

AL W AS T
I chose to focus on better information during the refueling process and improve the waiting time and how I could get the consumers to feel more secure and welcome.
CONCEPT 2 (Chosen concept)
After my first ideation I presented 3 concepts to the client. I went on with the second concept with the focus on being more intuitive, time saving, safe and welcoming towards the users.
WELCOMING ENCLOSING ORGANIC
GAS HOSE INSIDE
1. Park your car 2. Log in with your credit card
3. Attach the nozzle (It lights up when it's attached right.) 4. Press start
5. Relax while refilling your car
8. Detatch the nozzle
6. Light increases with progress
9. Drive on!
7. When the meter is full, you're done!
ARRANGEMENT Luminous can stand by itself along the road or many together on a large biogas tank location.
ELECTRIC MIXER Model Construction BFA Y1 | Two weeks | Winter 2013 A project focusing on taking 2D shapes into 3D by building a handheld product in scale 1:1 in PU-foam. I built an electric mixer which I named Eve.
IDEATION My shape was inspired by really powerful, edgy and aggressive shapes, that I combined with the soft and friendly shapes we see on todays electric mixers to create something new and interesting.
I built a full scale model in the workshop.
Starting by taking my 2D sketches into 3D shape.
Refining the shape and details to get it ready for painting
Painting the model in the paint booth.
HOT TEAM '15 Team Project BFA Y3 | Five weeks | Fall 2015 Collaboration with the Norrland University Hospital and the orthopedic ward. The brief meant that we could improve the various problems that existed at the orthopedic ward. My teammates: Axel Charpentier, Thomas Funder, Caroline Larsson and Jonas Lindberg
Falling accidents occur mainly during the night time, on short distances and when the patient is unassisted. One of the most intresting problems I found was that â€?healthyâ€? patients overestimate their own abilities and get hurt, thus prolonging their stay with the ward.
- Innaccessible - Requires assistace - Big and bulky - Cramped environment - The patients different needs
How can we reduce the current falling accidents and at the same time increase patients independence?
PATIENT AID TODAY
TESTS Our solution should support the natural movement pattern of patients. Therefore we did a test to see how a natural ascent curve for a person looks. The test included people of different ages and body volume. We marked out the various joints with colors for photography, and we asked people to raise up as they normally would. The result of this was that a natural ascent curve in an arc as you see blue-colored in the pictures.
OMNIWHEELS LED LIGHTS
A FRIEND IN THE DARK Reco guides you through the dark with its ledlights on the front and the LED lights along the armrests.
OMNI WHEELS Omni wheels are wheels with small discs around its own circumference which are perpendicular to the turning direction. Basically, it is small wheels on a big wheel.
The effect is that the wheel can be driven with full force, but will also slide laterally with great ease, which will help the patient easily control Reco.
Reco's two wheels supports the patientâ€™s movements and ability. Reco also helps the patient upp from sitting position following the natural movement of a ascent curve.
We used a Segway technology that is based on the two-wheeled self- balanced electric motor driven vehicle . Reco has, just as the segways, two wheels which are balanced and chargable.
Reco includes a bracelet which allows a patient to call directly on the Reco in need of help to walk. With the bracelet comes patient profiles with individual preferences.
Customizable patient preferences for Reco include adjustments for individual measurements depending on required and allowed rehab level.
BLUETOOTH Branding & Form BFA Y2 | Four weeks | Fall 2014 A branding course during my second year. The brand we were getting to know better was MINI. The focus was on working with red clay combined with sketching, as well as applying the distinctive form language of a MINI onto a different kind of product, in this case a bluetooth headset.
THE BRAND MINI
FORM DEVELOPMENT Went back and forth building in clay to sketch on the clay with focus on my key features to generate the Mini's design language.
MISC Furniture & Clothes In my spare time I like to sew clothes. I have also built some furniture, that interest started before I focused myself on design.
TABLE This is one of my hobbies and what made me take the first step into the design field. My aim as a designer is different now but I still enjoy being in the workshop.
EFFIE This is an outfit that I made for the past halloween. It's a character from the film triologi Hunger Games, named Effie Trinket.
