A motorised lightweight sack truck designed for the delivery driver market
The express delivery market is growing rapidly with increasing pressure on next day delivery and timed slots. The truck is designed to aid drivers in increasing efficiency and reducing the risk of injury and strain caused by heavy lifting and carrying.
Design for commercial manufacture
The truck is powered using in wheel hub motors and a lithium battery. Hall sensor throttles built into the truck handle control forward and backward momentum and assist in delivering power to negotiate varying terrain, inclines and kerbs. The airless tyre technology absorbs bumps and kerbs offering stability, low maintenance and longevity over traditional pneumatic tyres.
Versatility and manouevrability
The truck is compact enough to be easily transported in a small van but robust enough to take loads up to 100kg. Whilst designed for the expanding delivery market, the truck is suited to any environment where goods need to be moved over any type of ground, indoor or outdoors.
Knit - designing for modularity
Knit is a modular smart speaker comprising a single electronic hardware base unit and a choice of interchangeable speaker units with differing levels of audible quality. The user can upscale to better speakers without replacing the base unit. When the base reaches the end of its technical lifespan, its replacement will be compatible with the more expensive speaker element. The unit can be personally customised with different patterned and coloured sleeves.

I am a versatile designer with particular interest in UX and graphics, and enjoy designing products that have a positive impact on peoples' lives and wellbeing.
My design work is user focused with the aim of enhancing peoples' experiences through identifying needs and finding a functional but aesthetically pleasing solution. I enjoy collaboration and spent my placement year in a team designing installations for a children's learning centre at Alexandra Palace.
