This project involved choosing a brand and designing a hard drive casing based around the brand values, culture and its branding style. I chose Telenor, a telecommunication company which operated in Asian and Scandinavian countries. The project thereafter had to be modelled in CAD (Solidworks), rendered and presented front of a group of people.
The headphone project involved modelling a unique headphone design with all its details and working mechanism, thereafter using rendering software (Keyshot) to generate virtual representation in the formal of images and video. These outputs were used in designing the banners to promote the headphone.
CHARACTER IN EVERY DETAILS
Headphone variation designed to appeal to a wide range of users, the product was conducted for a period of 6 weeks with 2 days of studio practice.
The headphone is designed with adjustable headband, the plastics casing and the outer grill of the headphone would be manufactured using Injection moulding. The headband has stitching to add premium feel to the product.
Hypertension is a common issue that needed to be addressed, millions are send by NHS in countering it, if untreated, hypertension can cause death or serious health consequences, such as heart attack, stroke, dementia, kidney failure etc. By reducing the hypertension of the nation as a whole. £850 million of NHS spending could be avoided. User persona was identified as taxi drivers where the daily lifestyle was mapped from which lack or exercise and sleep due to shift patterns were identified to be an issue which contributes to poor health leading to hypertension.
BRIEF - You are to identify a key user group (based within the Leicestershire region) which is of a viable scale and which would directly benefit from the adoption of a ‘good living’ strategy.
Concept developed to tackle lack of sleep which was identified as a one of the problem which causes hypertension, the concept would allow the user to naturally wake up and go sleep with the aid of light and sound.
The electronics configuration made a sunrise and sunset light mode to wake and help the user fall asleep according to the alarm that is pre-set by the user.
The concept has been developed through various medium, such as blue foam modelling, CNC, vacuum forming, 3D printing etc. These tools were used to finalist a final design concept that can be manufactured with the electronics housing.
The product is designed with an app which would be used to set time, an monitor sleeping pattern, overtime the app would learn about the user , allowing the users to wake up / go sleep naturally according to the body clock, with a loud noise from an alarm clock, allowing for a perfect start to a day.
LACK OF SLEEP
The product has the potential to be applicable to profession, and not just taxi drivers.
Using solidworks analysis package, the plastic components underwent a drop test, as well as injection mould analysis to inform decision making in the design process.
The product would house a changeable led blub which can be controlled using Bluetooth through an app, the product has been appropriately designed to prevent over heating of the electronics.
The product would be manufactured using injection moulding and rota moulding, the top light diffuse would be rota moulded using PP, the rest of the components would be manufactured with ABS using injection moulding process.
Collection of sketches done using different medium, such as marker pen, biro, gel pen etc. In my free time I enjoying sketching and improving my sketching skills whether it be digital or on paper sketches.
BRIEF-As an increasing number of people are only travelling with hand luggage, there is a need for more products to be compact or multifunctional.
In response to the brief, user persona and user experience was had been used to identify issues surround elderly passengers on a plane. DVT, Deep vein thrombosis was identified as in factor which cause a great deal of distress to elderly passengers. DVT can cause leg pain or swelling, due to reduction to blood flow, this is true on a long haul flight when there is minimal movement.
We challenge you to design an innovative product, primarily in plastic, that will provide a more comfortable and less stressful travel experience.
The market of this product is beyond elderly passengers, any passenger can use it who suffer from DVT. Similarly, aeroplane companies would rent out the product or offer as a complementary product/ service which would highlight the company as a customer first approach.
The curved ergonomics of the product gives the user comfort. The plastics components of the product would be manufactured using PET due to its high tensile strength and durability.
The design allows the user to perform 3 form of excise to ensure the circulation of the blood. The exercise are foot roll, foot rock , and vibrating plate footrest.
BSc GROUP PROJECT Flogo the frog is a smart desk pet which reminds the user to stay hydrate and active by taking regular break from the screen during the day at the office. Flogo has been developed with the team of undergraduate BSc designers where each members has highly dedicated to perfectionized the final prototype.

As a BSc student it is require that we undertake a group project where the focus is around the mechatronics of the product. .
Stress at work is a significant contributor to wellbeing at work and health around the world. Stress is a second most cause of long terms from the workplace, hence, the product would aim to target this area and tackle this problem from a realistic point of view by promoting ways to stay healthy and stress free, for example, taking regular breaks, staying hydrated, walking around the office.

FLOGO BSc GROUP PROJECT The project required each member of the group to effectively communicate and relay information to efficiently complete the project successfully using project management skills.
The project required a report be written where each decision making had to be justified, such as the use of an Infrared scanner rather then a ultrasonic scanner which allowed the frog to avoid any obstacles. Infrared can work through many plastics whereas ultrasonic worked through very few expensive plastics with low accuracy compared to infrared but the scanner itself was cheap, hence, the manufacturing costs were crucial in the decision making.
PRODUCT IN USE
Using cardboards, and acrylic, the initial mechanism were developed from which a working prototype was made using scraps found in the workshop, which has been used to further develop the mechanism into a 3D printed version.
FLOGO BSc GROUP PROJECT
The hub is a charging base for the frog where it used induction charging technology. Also the hub has been designed with a plant pot allowing the users to feel calm and a homely environment when at works, as found by various research.
Flogo is equipped with technologies which measures air humidity, temperature and web-based forecasts. Using these technology the base communicates with the frog via Bluetooth, which triggers the frog as a remind for the user hence, the remind time would vary on the environment, humidity etc.
CAD tools has been used to study the feasibility of their project, flow analysis and FEA was used to ensure that all aspect of the product would be manufacturable.
