rox torch organic powered light


social d.i.y.

Rox Torch is a physical example of what power can be. By being D.I.Y., the user is directly connected to the object, and able to relate to the connection between light and energy. This allows Rox to become an object that uses the idea of playing with light to help comment on the importance of energy.


inspiration


testing

Testing using functional mock ups became key during the design phase to check feasibility of using oxidation reduction as a power source. A salt/tap water power source proved to be a realistic feat.


sketching Sketching became a large part of the ideation phase to derive the final form. Many different ideas for mechanics, form, as well as overall design were explored using pen sketches for this project.


refining the details

Using sketching for refinement proved to be more efficient and better to solve smaller details.

involve the user


By making the design D.I.Y. the user is directly connected in the objects creation. This better ties the user with the object and also allows them to explore.

The core of the project deals with revealing energy. By making the energy source itself bare, the user can see the reactions with the different elements and reflect on the process. This makes the user face the issue while using their curiosity to the design’s benefit.

pur wave 速

responsible bottled water


Tapping into local water means no need to ship large volumes, consuming less energy and producing less greenhouse gases.

More profit for the company, reducucing bottling means less wasteful packaging, less money and resources on distribution, and the user picks what they want, meaning better trending and product placement.


No plastic bottles, bottling in resuable bottles at the local source means no unecessary waste in lanfills and our enviornment.

why ship water? Filtered municipal water almost constitutes all of the volume of any bottled beverage. PUR Wave is a reusable bottled beverage dispensing system that creates its beverages from concentrates and municipal water. This cuts down packaging waste, transportation, and cost to both the beverage companies and the consumer.

full size testing

Full sized testing and mock ups were used to validated features and placement of key points of the design.


interface development Mapping the screens and steps for scenarios were used for the framework for the user interface. This led into test models to ensure a logical flow and intuitiveness.

interface design

height adjusts depending on where user touches screen Using a touch screen allowed the exploration of a moving U.I. and was a logical option for a complex vending system. This made an adaptable interface possible.

accessibility

Careful consideration of the accessibility of the key points of interaction were the driving factors in the final design. Both the retrieval slot as well as interface were relocated towards the middle to reduce the need to hunch over and centralize interaction points.


The interface screen adjusts menu options depending on where the user touches the start menu. This allows the accommodation of people of multiple heights.

A lower ledge was created to help with differently abled users. It allows users an area to free up hands to make the machine easier for all to access.

wallycase yacht inspired pc case


materials Wallycase is a race yacht inspired p.c. case that explores how a design is dictated by material and manufacturing processes. Two designs were created that showcased how a single concept can differ when factors like production volumes, tooling cost, and part cost become applied.


understanding brand image and brand aspiration the wally brand has strong roots in yacht racing, this led to using the brands heritage and aspirations as the inspiration for the design.

High production runs rely on low part cost and the ability to quickly produce volume to stay profitable. This meant manufacturing process like injection molding are best to utilize. In turn these manufacturing processes and materials dictate the overall design.


sketch exploration


high tooling cost, low part cost High production runs rely on low part cost and the ability to quickly produce volume to stay profitable. This meant manufacturing process like injection molding are best to utilize. In turn these manufacturing processes and materials dictate the overall design. Colors were chosen to evoke the feelings associated with Wallypower and Wallyacht’s progressive designs and their tie to the ocean.

low tooling cost, high part cost In lower production runs, a lower investment in startup is needed. This means more craft based methods are ideal because of the less need for tooling. In this case, this resulted in the use of wood crafting, composites, and sand casting.

orbit halo 速

urban convertible stroller


the parents’ needs

Although safety does play an issue, for parents, their experiences with strollers deal mostly with convenience, portability, and image. Designing a stroller quickly becomes a balancing act between meeting the needs of both users of the final design.


vs. the baby’s needs

Comfort and safety are the most important factor in stroller design when it comes to the child’s needs. These include the geometry, mechanisms, child proofing, and material choices of the final stroller design.


urban terrain

Not many strollers are designed specifically for urban environments because of the preconceived notion many have of raising families in suburbs. Unlike suburbs, urban settings vary more in conditions and are harsher on wheels.


regulations Realizing the complexity of the nature of stroller design, the design team of orbit baby strollers was contacted for help and feedback on the project. They helped with explaining and advising on how to address and resolve many different regulations from material choices to complex testing standards like the european union’s strict tilt test.

Coutney, process engineer for orbit baby Yuske, industrial designer for orbit baby


proportions Scaled orthographic drawings were used to play with wheel configurations to explore concepts. This allowed play with layouts while ensuring the wheelbase geometry still fit proven wheel lengths and bases.


testing Multiple forms of mock ups, full scale tape drawings, and smaller scaled mechanical mock ups were used to develop the functional aspect of the stroller.

The large wheeled design aids in traversing on city streets by minimizing the effects of potholes and similar obstacles. This also gives the stroller more robustness found in jogger strollers that are ideal for city dwelling families.

globe go bag mobility for cyclist


millennials + globe Specialized bikes approached us to design bike accessories under their globe bikes brand for millennial college students. Unlike other cycling commuters, college students also spend a lot of time walking on campus to and from classes, making traditional panniers impractical. This led to an design solution that provided the benefits of a backpack with the bike friendliness of panniers.


working with globe to solve the problem with back packs on bikes Balance is a major factor in ride confidence as well as safety. Lowering a rider’s center of gravity makes cycling easier and reduces the risk of accidents. Although panniers offer safe riding options, college students find panniers troublesome. They find them bulky and unwieldy on foot.

Visibility, especially at night is one of the biggest fears of both cyclist as well as drivers. Majority of accidents with cyclist involve the lack of visibility. Side visibility, even with electronic lights lack sufficient coverage. Small blinking lights are usually not enough to be seen from far distances drivers need to safely avoid cyclist.


working with the globe designers

Head Specialized design director Robert Eager and his design team worked directly with San Jose State ID. This gave valuable inside knowledge of the bike industry and experience to the project.


ideation Although the design initially was worked out in sketches, volumetric mock ups became the best way to develop a feasible concept.

One of the most distinct design aspects of the globe bikes brand is the unique mid modern color schemes and details melded with very contemporary features and forms. The Go Bag shares many of these design cues like utilizing their unique chevron shape for inspiration and incorporating their color palette in a retro-modern inspired, contemporary bag.

about me I have always have had a fascination with making things and “tweaking� things I own. I studied fine arts at UC Irvine, and my love of the arts, pop culture and fashion deeply drive me as a designer. The things people buy express who they are, making designers responsible for shaping peoples’ physical world. I want to create things where I can meld eld these passions of mine and leave my mark. I believe everyone can relate to this and this is why I love being a designer.

Doing what I love, making things go from paper into a reality. I love creating things and seeing ideas turn into something tangible.

One of my first passions, collecting shoes. Not many mass produced objects combine artwork, incredible exporation of materials, functionality, and are responsible for shaping our pop-culture


My love of pop street culture manifested. They live on my bookshelf at home in So-Cal in my collection of street artist collaboration toys. I love how these objects of art are created for the masses.

One of my first achievements in getting my designs into stores. A high school dream turned into reality when I got some of my first t-shirt designs into local boutique stores in my hometown.
