A designer searches and strives high and low for something new, something that will entertain, inform, persuade, or improve lives. As the world gets more competitive and crammed with bright minds, it is a challenge to shine with uniqueness and creativity. I think real creativity is like a picture perfect parfait, layered and deep, with a variety of flavors. A designer should not only be a master of art and design, but also understand the business of a wide variety of studies and industries. Economics, World History, windsurfing, ping pong, Archeology, French cuisine. A designer has to be in tune with the ebb and flow of culture and society, past and present, to anticipate and invent the future. So I take great pains in every stage of creative development. To become the ideal designer as I have dreamed, I have studied widely and diversely to strengthen my thinking and logic from the inside out, bottom to top, conception to the final product.

FALL 2012 // GROUP WORK

A product that simplifies the experience of wine drinking and brings the classic to the modern


Design Process Problem Statement

“ 3 days � Once the wine is opened, it will lose its quality in 3 days even if it has been preserved well. The oxygen softens the flavors and opens up the aromas of the wine. As this oxidation process continues over a period of time, the wine is ultimately made undrinkable.

Problem

Difficult to put a cork back into a wine bottle after opening the bottle Preserving leftover wines without stoppers

General wine drinking process

Wine Accessory set

Design Opportunity :

The use of multiple tools create inefficiency


Design Process Brainstorming Win eO pe n

Design Direction

Market Research

Simplify the wine drinking process by using less products. Look for ways to insert the original cork back into the wine bottle.

Various products such as foil cutters, corkscrews, bottle stoppers and bar measures exists. One stopper per one bottle is not efficient and it can be easily misplaced. Too

Final Design

ADJUSTABLE SIZES ROCKY can be adjusted for different heights/sizes of babies. For example, smaller babies need less space. Therefore, by inserting more air in to the cradle, a tighter space will be formed. If the baby needs more space, insert less air for a looser fit.

1 layer used as a pillow / cushion

2 layers used as stable cradle

3 layers used as a rocking cradle

INFLATABLE POCKETS

TRANSFORMATION

ROCKY is easily assembled . Each pocket contains separate inflation valves. The user will need to insert air into the right pockets according to their needs. The inflation valves are located outside of the body to prevent the baby from sucking on the valves.

Since ROCKY is inflatable, adults can lower the height by deflating the air from the cradle and using it as a pillow/cushion. Separate layers of pockets will make this process easier.


MOTION ROCKY’s name comes from the “rocking” motion. The inflatable cradle curves in the bottom when it is completely inflated. The smooth, gentle swinging motion rocks the baby to sleep.

EMOTION ROCKY encourages and lightens up the atmosphere with its organic and calm form. The cushioned body and attractive oval shape will keep the baby comfortable.
