KEY AREA FOR IMPROVEMENT

DEFINING THE PROBLEM
Mascara is an untapped, unsustainable FMCG that needs revision. Females usually throw their empty mascaras into their bin as there are no visible recycling symbols on the current packaging, plus users aren’t bothered about recycling as it is an inconvenience. The mascara is often lost as there is no perceived value to the product.
Numerous insights were pulled out from primary and secondary research uncovering user habits, perceptions and values of mascara and other beauty products.
IDEATION & PROTOTYPING
Ways to apply mascara to the lashes were explored in a variety of concepts, leading to over 21 prototype iterations tested on over 14 different users. Models ranged from low ďŹ delity cardboard and polymorph, to precision 3D printing.

An infant height, weight an BMI centile measure used at NHS home visits and clinics.
“MANY CHILDREN ARE RELUCTANT TO COMPLY, WHICH CAN RESULT IN A RETURN VISIT. ” NHS Nursery Nurse, Dorset
“I CARRY 4 BAGS.. BACKPAIN IS COMMON.” NHS Health Visitor, Warwickshire
Current NHS equipment to measure 2-5 year old height and weight is hard to transport, inaccurate and intrusive for a young child. After interviewing NHS Health Professionals, child development experts and product suppliers, key areas to improve were: 01 Child-friendliness 02 Portability 03 Ease of use
“NOT CHILD-FRIENDLY.” NHS Health Visitor, Lincolnshire
PROPOSAL An all-in-one infant measure that uses ultrasound sensors to accurately measure height without contact, scales for weight, and an app to calculate BMI.
Experiments in card, CAD and MDF helped verify stability, mechanisms and scale. A high fidelity prototype of the final design was made by hand, shown right.
ULTRASOUND SENSOR ANTENNA
MIRROR PIVOT MECHANISM PORTABLE SUITCASE
Ultrasound sensors inside the antenna measure height, whilst the scales housed in the suitcase read weight. All the data is recorded using an app which can connect to the eRedbook. After measurement, LEDs around the â€˜headâ€™ light up to reward the child. Extra components help assess fine and gross motor skills.
INFANT MEASUREMENT APP
“REALLY CLEVER HOW EVERYTHING FITS IN JUST ONE CASE” NHS Health Visitor
“WHOLE EXPERIENCE IMPROVED” NHS Nursery Nurse
A high ďŹ delity model was tested on over 15 different users, including NHS Health Visitors, Nursery Nurses, Doctors, Child Experts, parents and 2-5 year olds. Feedback was very positive, concluding the whole measurement experience had been totally improved. Mea helps to bring a fun and positive perception of NHS measuring processes from a young age,.
01 Load Mea into the car. 02 Walk to the house or development clinic. 03 Pivot hoops upwards and insert antenna. 04 Read ‘Pogo and Coco’ story using toys as props. 05 Load ‘Mea’ app and calibrate sensors. 06 Child stands on, measurements taken, BMI is calculated. 07 For 27 month development reviews: use building blocks, beads, thread and colouring pad to assess motor skills.
A nine month placement at Verdure Outdoor Living designing a new furniture range. Diploma of Professional Studies
To design, develop and prototype a high end outdoor furniture range. All manufacturing techniques used must align to the basic machining capabilities of the Canadian manufacturers.
AVERAGE PRICE MARKET WOULD PAY FOR CHAIRS AND TABLE
OF USERS SURVEYED CHOSE CHAIR B
“I LIKE IT BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE AN INDOOR CHAIR” CHAIR B “IT LOOKS ROBUST”
Through a series of user feedback sessions at a trade fair and garden centres, a target market was formed with needs and preferences outlined. The resultant design was a luxury outdoor chair made from Clear Red Western Cedar.
As well as chair and table sets, other concepts produced on the placement included a camping pod for â€˜glampingâ€™, and a BBQ Hut for a new cooking experience in the garden.
