Design is a jouney that begins at the heart of an opportunity. It requires a set of skills to deliver successful solutions: Empathy to asses the problem, creativity to ideate, an open mind to refine, craftsmanship to make the final product, and commitment to go a step beyond and evaluate.

LUMO


Biologically inspired reading light and flashlight for children in underpriviledged countries


DESIGN GOAL

Provide kids in underpriviledged countries with a light to study under. The inspiration should come from biological example of a form, mechanism, or structure. There should be an alternative power source, which will allow extended period of use

Socioeconomic Low cost Solve a social issue Easily accessible Easily recyclable

Technical LED-based Consume little power Sustainable power source Moving mechanism

Ergonomic Portable Output enough light Intuitive to operate Space efficient


ORGANIC FLEXIBLE BIOLOGICAL INSPIRATION

ENERGY EFFICIENT


B Inspired by the

A Inspired by the

crocus which blooms during the day and close at night to conserve resources

durability and foldable nature of leaves

C Inspired by giraffe’s neck, which has an extra point of flexibility

Inspired by the way armadillos curl into a ball

FINAL PROTOTYPE

Flower- housing for LED. Folds in to become a flashlight

LED

Base Handle- swivels to provide ease of use and portability


USING LUMO

ELECTRONICS

The light is designed to be powered by peltier tiles. Temperature difference across the tiles generates a voltage difference, The tiles are connected in parallel with the battery terminals and will need a resistor or diode to control the voltage running across it. The final solution will have tiles embedded in the handle


SLANT


One-armed, whiskey-drinking cardboard chair made entirely out of 2 4’x8’ sheets of cardboard


Sidney Brinson

Height: 5’5� Task for chair: drinking whiskey Design requirements: - Have at least one arm - Clean and simple - Reclined Ergonomic requirements: - Feet should sit flat on ground - Back should be supported - Legs and arms at right angles

The 2-D Ideation process began with producing about 100 thumbnails. The 100 were then narrowed down to 30 with input from Sidney. The 30 were then narrowed down to 3 concepts, which were to be explored further. A part of the exploration process included sketching different configurations of the client in order to get a seating that best suits her. Shown on this page are some of those sketches

SMART PACK


Humanitarian Aid Package redesign to help solve illiteracy


% Undernourished


DESIGN GOAL There is a geographic overlap between countries with an undernourished and illiterate population (e.g. Afghanistan, Iraq, Rwanda, and Haiti). Smart Pack is designed to tackle both issues through an economically and environmentally friendly solution

Current Solution Problem

Smart Pack


Shown here are pictures of the current Humanitarian Daily Ration (HDR) package. These packages are approximately 9”x5”x3” (LxWxH) and have “Food Gift From The People Of The UNITED STATES OF AMERCA” printed across the front. Inside the package is an instruction sheet which explains that the package contains food.

RESEARCH


Existing methods of teaching numbers were used to help develop an effective system which the user can self-learn through. The objective was to make a design that would involve people of all ages, be entertaining and engaging, and create a friendly environment through sharing.


IDEATION


MODEL MAKING

Laser cutting game pieces

Material study

Laser cutting game board designs

HDR box study


1. Open the box

2. Remove contents

3. Flatten the box

4. Pop out pieces

5. Place numbers in starting spot. Take turns matching the numbers next to the right equation (hint: answers are in dot format!)

6. ENJOY!


FINAL SOLUTION


GT LIBRARY APP


Concept Appp Design for “Library Redbox”


ME!

A one week charette was held for teams of Masters students in ID and Architecture to create solutions for the new library design at Georgia Tech. Our group focused on the accessibility since our books are moving off campus. The solution was to have a Redbox type system which would store books (delivered from the off campus storage) and vend it to students.


THE SOLUTION

As the UI/UX designer for the team, I designed an app that would allow access to the database of available books without having to go to the library

Reserve a book, journal, article, magazine, etc. using the mobile app

Order gets sent to the archives

The delivery truck brings order to the library, which is sorted into the vending machine

Machine locates material based on student ID

Collect your material!

PERSONAL PROJECT: CHAPBOOK


Project born out of curiosity and love for graphic design and book making


BINDING PROCESS


FINAL PRODUCT


DESIGN SKETCHING

Flex is a timekeeping device targeted toward people who want a sleek, edgy, and clean looking sports watch. The final concept was drawn with a felt tip marker and rendered using colored markers


The objective of this assignment was to look at the Coleman 100 Roadtip Grill (bottom right images) and conceive 3 perspective views, followed by a form study to redesign and enhance the look of the existing product. Orthographics (below) were made using given dimensions, sketches (right) were made in 2 point perspective using ball point pen and paper Top

FINAL SKETCHES


FORM EXPLORATION


FINAL SOLUTION

The previous form had a few curves and an off-shelf look. The new form looks more clean, sleek, and futuristic and has an embedded handle which will be easier to use and put away Handle re-designed to be made of fabric and fit flush with surface

Curved legs paired with narrowing body gives it a futuristic look

Raised straps were removed to give the grill a cleaner look
