24 week individual project Brief: To d e s i g n a n d c r e a t e a c h i l d r e n ’ s t o y w i t h some form of secondar y function. The toy should be aimed at a specific user and the secondar y function should be relevant t o s a i d u s e r.

My Interpretation:

“SOMETHING SHE CAN LEARN NEW SKILLS FROM” “ S T I M U L AT E H E R B R A I N ” “A T O Y W H I C H U S E S M U S I C W O U L D B E P E R F E C T F O R H E R . ”

USER RESEARCH “ H O W M I G H T W E I N C O R P O R AT E M U S I C I N TO T H E TO Y ? ” Incorporating music into the toy requires there to be an element

of musical touch to it. This interaction could be using the toy as an i n s t r u m e n t i t s e l f, d e v e l o p i n g m u s i c a l i n t e r a c t i o n p o i n t s o n t h e

toy or making it a product to be used with another musical device.

“HOW MIGHT WE COMBINE THE USER’S LOVE FOR PUZZLES WITH MUSIC?” Creating a toy which combines music and puzzles may mean the

development of a simple self assembled instrument or one which focuses on the identification of different musical instruments through matching them to their appearance.

” H O W M I G H T W E K E E P T H E AT T E N T I O N O N T H E TO Y ? ” A s i d e n t i f i e d i n t h e i n t e r v i e w t h e t o y n e e d s t o u s e t h e u s e r ’s

be put into creating a product that stands out from other toy shapes which also means the user can learn new skills by

interacting with a product like nothing they have before.

10 week individual project

Brief: Identify an opportunity for an IoT product for which the industrial design is dedicated to a clearly defined context. .

My Interpration: I chose to create an accessible security device for people that are deaf and hard of hearing. The product takes inspiration from current home security like “HIVE� but makes it inclusive to users that are often forgotten despite being most vulnerable. It uses an aesthically pleasing design to set it apart from other products on the hard of hearing market.

SKETCHING

DEVELOPMENT

The intial stage of my

design process for centinal

was coming up with iterative sketches.

They enabled me to explore forms that would suit the

design of a security system product.

Ta k i n g f r o m t h e i n i t i a l

thumbnail sketch stage to a more developed 3D

visual stage, allowed me to experiment with how

the product could interact with the Internet of Things.

Using SketchBook I further developed my designs to

clearly define points of contact

between the security system hub and the smaller attachment.

I looked at how the various styles would be better to be desktop products or wall-mounted.

5 week group project Brief: Design an interactive prototype to improve your local amenities or campus facilities that you encounter in everyday life.

My Interpretation: The result of this project was the creation of a motion activated contraceptive pill dispenser which was intended to ease everyday activties of busy females

Ted E

Brief: To d e v e l o p a s t r e s s e a s i n g p r o d u c t / / t o y f o r children that enable them to cope with situations in which they feel anxious. The product could use an app to communicate the level of stress the child feels to the parent.

ase

My Interpretation: I created this brief myself after feeling inspired by research done as part of a group project. I wanted to incoperate both the elements of play and monitoring into the product as there are a lack of these products currently in the toy market.

UNFOCUSED LEARNING

A N A LY S I S O F F O R M

Using the style I was able to identif y shapes and silhouettes to be used in my own design.

Many existing toys use cur ves to simulste a sof t sur tace. The child wants to interact with different textures on toys. Some toys also use a range of materials. From this I concluded the design of the toy should use different textures along with smooth shapes to give a calming experience to the user.

Using Sketchbook and initial hand

drawn sketches I developed my concept for the StressEase teddy bear which is

ABOUT ME:

ABOUT ME:

I am a driven individual who strives to achieve. I’m

greatly interested in all areas of creativity and love to explore different mediums of art and design. I believe

that my work reflects my passion for ensuring products are both aesthically pleasing and user centred. HOBBIES AND INTERESTS: -READING

-FOOTBALL

-MODEL MAKING

-COLLECTING POP VINYL FIGURES -BIRO SKETCHING:

As a personal interest of mine I particularly enjoy

studying the art styles of graphic novels and recreating them into my own take on them using biro sketches. I also enjoy using acr ylic paint to create studies of characters and simple pencil sketches.
