GutGo - to help gastrointestinal symptoms in endurance runners
GutGo ferments one portion of milk kefir daily, to improve gastrointestinal health. Interaction has been extensively prototyped and developed for a mess-free ease of use, for a time-poor competitive endurance runner.
Simple and clear user interface
The product ferments and then cools the kefir to fridge temperatures. GutGo constantly monitors the PH of the kefir to ensure the probiotic is ready only when safe to consume, whilst also ensuring it is a palatable consistency.
Self contained and transportable to competitions
Kefir must be consumed daily to reap the rewards. The portable size, leakproof, foldable plug and hidden cable tidy features enable the product to be transported easily for overnight events.
I am a proactive, inquisitive designer with a strong work ethic and particular interest in designing holistic insight driven user experiences that go above and beyond the needs of users.
I am passionate about gaining a thorough understanding of user needs to develop insight driven designs that delight users. During my year as a user experience designer at Sophos, I experienced the importance of user centred design, designing simplicity into complex cyber security software interfaces for non-technical users, something that is particularly critical to avoid catastrophic impact from user error. I loved working as a part of a multidisciplinary team designing wireframes and Axure prototypes for in-house lab usability testing with customers. I also managed a project on design for accessibilty, ensuring the UI complied with WCAG standards, to avoid barriers for interaction by users with disabilities. I hope to persue a career in user experience, whether that be for physical or digital products.
