Sumit Jadhav Product Designer

For as long as I can remember, I have been keenly interested in the process of creation of products. The reason I feel particularly interested in the field of Industrial Design is my fascination with creative visualisation. I love how innovation is an extension of man’s imagination and how evolving technology makes this a reality. I am keen on becoming a part of a global team and fraternity producing new-generation products, many of whom may be more complex in conceptualization but far simpler for the consumer to use. It is said that one has to be passionate about one’s work and that your work should be your very love if you are to really enjoy what you are doing. It is only then that your job can give you complete satisfaction and joy! I can very confidently say that this quality counts among my greatest strengths. I dream of being able to produce new products with innovations and specialties that are an expression of my client’s requirements, hopes and aspirations. I am happy also that I know and understand what my aims and true aspirations are in life. Every client I work with, and every new project I undertake, take me a step closer to the accomplishment of my professional goals.

Water Jar Lid






Locking Mechanisms

Form Study Mechanism Based Concepts

Water Jar Lid The picture on the left shows the existing jar & the lid to be redesigned. Problems spotted : - Gaskets leaked from the side and top - The circular lid needed to be placed in a certain manner to close properly (b) and if tightened it wouldn’t fit properly (c). Moving towards concept without mechanisms in order to reduce product part complications and hence the number of parts.

Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |


Some of the immediate solutions to one of the leaky gaskets were: - Flipping one of the gaskets upside down (1). - Redesigning of the gaskets (2) But the gasket or the area around the circular lid had to be redesigned making it mandatory to redesign the lid, which would also refresh the look of the lid.

Opening Mechanisms


Water Jar Lid Simplified Concepts

Revised Design with the least number of parts. The jar lip was modified in order to reduce the number of parts. The gasket of the jar has been designed in such a way that the jar can also be made air-tight so as to retain the freshness of its contents.

Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |

Final Concept


Water Jar Lid

Open the clips on either side to release the lid for cleaning and refilling.

Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |

The flap is an extension of the gasket which makes the jar air-tight. One has to open the flap and lock it in the open position in the notch provided on the lid, so as to pour.

Final Concept

Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |

Most conventional water jars have taps protruding from the jar and the tap is located parallel to the handle arch. This causes problems while carrying or storing the jar. Also when the water level is low one has to use both hands, one to hold the jar and other to tilt it. In the concepts below, a cavity has been made such that the tap fits flush with the body surface. Also the tap has been positioned in line with the handle which solves some of the problems mentioned earlier.

Modular Containers Mood Board

Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |

The aim was to design a new series of modular container with neat clean design language. The containers had to be nested and some of them with microwave vents.


Modular Containers

Some of the locking mechanisms were explored.

Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |

Initial plan was to extend the design language to a series of forms (rectangular, square & circular), to form a family, but was later changed to rectangular form only.

Redesigned Components


Insulated Water Bottle

Head Cap Clips

We thought, since kids of this age are attracted to cartoon characters, animals and soft toys, it might be a good idea to have a water bottle in the form of a cute animal: in this case, a bear. The nose on the bottle is a release button to open the head section, to sip water.


The glasses form a lock that prevents the nose from being pressed accidently, resulting in opening of the lid. A strap will be snapped on to the pins on the bottom on either sides.

Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |


This was a quick concept designed for a project in which insulated water bottles were to be made for 3-6 year-old children.


Insulated Water Bottle These bottles have a simple form but a striking co-moulded body treatment which kids of this age group would love. The design of this bottle makes it an enviable style statement. The co-moulded part also forms a grip element on the bottle. The lid, made of silicone, is easy to open and shut.

Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |

This was a quick concept designed for a project in which insulated water bottles were to be made for children aged 7 and above.

Talcum Powder & Deodorant containers The talcum powder containers are in two sizes and the form has been ergonomically designed to suit the client’s requirements. The colors have also been chosen considering the target market.

The deodorant bottles have a stronger form. The one at the bottom-right resembles a bullet. The finish is bare metal with print so as to compliment the form.

Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |

These were quick concepts for a pitch to a toiletries manufacturer. We were required to design a talcum powder container (including graphics) for women, and a deodorant can for men.

Steam Iron Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |

The target market here is 18-28 yrs., which includes students pursuing professional education to professionals who prefer products that are elegant looking and easy to handle. The concepts are a mix of traditional steam irons with a fresh touch of flow lines, increasing their aesthetic appeal.

Perfume Bottle

It is very clear that the bottle derives its design clues from the

mid-section of the car shown above. The form also has clues drawn from the helmet of an F1 driver. There are many more parts with which the form can be associated, and a car-crazy person would definitely associate it with one.

Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |

This perfume bottle was designed keeping in mind the Frerrari brand, its products and the target audience that admires and follows this brand.


5L Water Jug - Completely enclosed tap - Legs for raising height - Two handles instead of one for stability while pouring when the water level is low

- Simple form - Better aesthetics - Compact design - Better stacking

Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |

This concept is an extension of one of my earlier projects (5L Water Jars) for a client. Of all the options I designed, I pick this one as being the best design solution. My reasons are:

Features and Materials

The top shelf of the product has been made big enough to display all the available varieties of the wine sold by French Rabbit. Some of the materials that can be used are cardboard and coroplast which is structurally similar to that of a cardboard but is stronger and long lasting than that of cardboard.

Sumit Jadhav | (+91)9920529806 |

The form of the product represents the unique shape of the bottle to be displayed.

This gives structural rigidity making it possible to place all those bottles. It also facilitates storage of extra crates of wine bottles which are accessible from behind the product.


Graphic Variation

All the graphic variations have been made taking into consideration the brand and all the elements surrounding the brand. Some of them are for describing what the brand is all about.
