Due to a shift in technology, many of the new workforce emerging are a great deal more mobile than there predecessors allowing them to take their work with them and build their work around their life rather then their life around work.

This new style of work has lead to many doing away with the need for office overheads and are instead opting to work from home, this has also lead to new trends emerging such as work-hubs and hot-desking.

THE RECENT SHIFT IN ATTITUDE HAS SEEN MANY COMPANIES CHANGING THE CURRENT SET UP OF THEIR OFFICES. COUPLED WITH THE CUTS MADE, THROUGH THE RECESSION MANY COMPANIES HAVE OPTED FOR A MOBILE WORKFORCE

EMPLOYEE EFFICIENCY HAS LONG BEEN A CONCERN FOR EMPLOYERS. HOWEVER FOR THOSE THAT ALLOW THEIR EMPLOYEES TO WORK FLEXIBLY THAT CONCERN IS INCREASED GREATLY. MANY TECHNIQUES HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED TO HELP MAINTAIN EMPLOYEE EFFICIENCY FOR THOSE THAT WORK OUTSIDE OF THE TRADITIONAL OFFICE. HOWEVER THE VAST MAJORITY OF THESE TECHNIQUES HAVE PROVEN INEFFECTIVE

PLANIT TIME MANAGEMENT // DEVELOPMENT PLANIT is the development of a time/project management application that allows young professionals; undergraduate and postgraduate students to better plan their social/work life, at home, in the office and on the go. Giving users an alternative to methods currently in use. Utilising the advances made in digital technology PLANIT creates an environment that visualises projects in an intuitive and playful manner, allowing users to build a system that orbits around them

PLANIT TIME MANAGEMENT // TESTING Throughout the applications development testing was used as a means to locate any potential problems, both within the systems surface programming and more fundamental core programming. During the initial stages, wireframe models were used to provide a quick solution to analysing the early prototypes, allowing the interface to be tested on a variety of user demographics. Towards the later stages of development, users were asked to carry a range of tasks without any prior information, giving realistic feedback as to how the product might fair if made available to the public.

ONBOARD CARRY-ON CASE // ONBOARD was part of my work portfolio whilst I was studying at Lund University. ONBOARD is a look into carry-on luggage and the best way to maximise limited space. The case consists of two components a quick release upper case for small items such as phones, tablets, passport etc. and a larger main case.

SAMUEL L. H. RAPP University of Brighton 2008 // 2012 17


onboard carry on case

The smaller of the two cases provides the user with the option of a small carry-on case that can be used to gain easy access to essential items whilst in-flight.

2011

The larger case has been designed to allow the user as much space as possible, by removing all the inner workings, such as the wheel arches and pole extensions it has allowed for 30% more space than the average suitcase.

FLIGHT // CAD For me the role of the desk is a constant, although the outer surface may change the need remains the same - a place for both work and storage. However with working hours getting longer and longer the need for comfort becomes far more apparent. Flight looks to combine both comfort and function in an elegant and minimalist package. Taking into account percentile reach, ideal user position and flexibility.

BLOOD PRESSURE INFO-GRAPHIC // The following report is a study documenting statistics and issues regarding the importance of regularly checking your blood pressure. Particular study and attention is paid to the population of the UK. It was necessary to use design principles and a clear colour strategy to effectively communicate the information. This allows the document to be organised into accessible and useful areas in which comparisons to relevant information can be made. The document was used to support the resulting website, www.westfieldhealth. com

FORTYFOUR POCKET EXHIBITION // DEVELOPMENT This project oversaw the creation of a pocket exhibition, A2 and A1 posters, A6 postcard exhibition invitations and branding in order to showcase all final year BSc Product Design students at the University of Brighton. The materials are intended to promote each graduate designer to potential employers and awards judges at multiple exhibitions and internationally attended events. Key to the project was brand strategy along with elegant and vibrant visuals to create an intelligent portfolio that gained interest and effectively demonstrated each students work and style.

FORTYFOUR POCKET EXHIBITION // PAGE LAYOUT Typically, all exhibitors have prepared materials and books for attendees to take away. These range in size and weight, which creates the issue of many being put off carrying around lots of large books and leaflets. The FortyFour Pocket Exhibition is A6 sized for ease of weight and is designed to fit in your back pocket. As the portfolio is for potential employers to take away, the pages are removable to allow for the ease of use. Each page then becomes an over sized business card that can kept in your pocket or on your notice board for when you need it. The portfolio is also customisable with space to include a personal business card and can be sealed to enhance the user’s experience and overall impact

FORTYFOUR POCKET EXHIBITION // CASE DEVELOPMENT Strong research into human factors and behaviour lead the project and gave strong focus among the team. Research into text formatting, eye fixation spans and attention spans was carried out in order to benefit each graduate allowing for the reader to take in the maximum amount of information in the quickest amount of time. Many of the successful designs have now been incorporated into the Product Design course and will be used year on year.
