Brief: To design a pill organiser that allows users to take medication / tablets at different times of the day The box has a volume of 10562 cubic millimeters, allowing it to hold roughly 12 size 00 capsule pills

Neodymium magnets strong magnetic pull whilst being small in size, attract the boxes to the holder, neatly positioning them in a spherical shape

The box can be attached to keys by a carabiner or keyring, making the box portable and available to the user as required

Portable - the box is 75mm x 29mm x 34mm, similar in size to a car key

The main body is opaque, preventing any UV light from reaching the pills stored within

Debossed morning, noon and night symbols universally identify the compartments as well as helping users with poor vision

One tap to turn on

Two taps for flashing

Three taps to turn off

Detachable light prevents theft

Windows allow children to put their existing toys inside the car as ‘passengers’



Brief: To design a holder for toothbrushes when not in use which improves toothbrush hygiene in a bathroom environment

Keeps toothbrush in an upright position allowing moisture to drain away from brush head

Drainage hole prevents buildup of moisture which harbors bacteria

Suction cup allows holder to be stuck to any flat surface e.g. bathroom tiles

Dishwasher safe for ease of cleaning

Silver Ion anti microbial coating on silicone reduces bacteria and microbial growth by as much as 95%

Brief: To design and make a razor in the style of a brand of your choice





I was approached by a startup company from Dubai to design a pair of sunglasses for a teenage market, where the frame could be 3D printed. This was an exciting opportunity as it allowed me to explore an area of design that is completely new to me.

Simple hinge mechanism is large enough to be 3D printed correctly and is durable, lasting for many uses

My initial ideas featured a single flat lens spanning across the face of the sunglasses updating a classic design

Brief: Design a product using taking inspiration from the words ‘Space and Time’
