In store refill system
Vacuum kettle technology allows concentrated deodorant ingredients to be melted and activated within the main unit before being dispensed into personal applicators below to be left to harden into stick deodorant. Multiple applicators can be refilled at once.
At home postal refill system with personal applicator
A postal service of personalised deodorant ingredients allows users to refill their applicator at home. Boiling water is poured into the outside walls of the applicator to melt and activate the formula within the separate inner chamber.
A series of lights help guide the user through the process of using the in-store device in a top to bottom sequence. Additional staff assistance with choosing deodorant formulation ensures a relaxing personal user experience tailored to the individual.
Individual product applicators can be refilled over and over using the system, removing the need to buy disposable deodorant applicators and reducing waste from the personal hygiene sector.
ChatterBox: enhancing social interaction by encouraging behaviour change
A menu holder unit for pubs and bars that locks the users drink to the table when they use their phone, aiming to design inconvenience into situations to promote socialisation.
Placing drinks into the holder units automatically locks them in place, a flashing light on the menu holder unit alerts users to open the menu holder unit. Phones can be plugged in before shutting the door. This release the drinks glasses from the holders allowing users to drink and socialise without distraction.
Specialised glasses and holders
Strong magnets within the glass and holding units allows them to be held in place when the holding unit is turned on. Rounded bottoms to the glasses prevent the option of them being used as stand alone items.
Charging facilities for multiple phones
Menu holder units can store up to 4 phones; (2 on each side). Only when the phone is plugged into the unit and the door is slid down will the magnets be turned off within the holders and the glasses released from the holder units. Unit offers free phone charging when in use.
Hi, I am an Industrial Designer with a keen interest in designing for environmental and social change.
I am a focused and motivated designer who finds joy in watching projects develop and change as the finer details of design work are developed. I enjoy exploring design ideas through tactile media with method’s that engage users early on in the process. I relish the opportunity to see my ideas come to life. Designing for the security of future generations is more important than ever with great responsibility now placed on designers. I have gained a wide range of skills both at university and during my year on placement, including learning to work within a design team, problem solving, user centred design and using in depth research to improve design work. I aspire to further this skill set in the future with a career in industrial design.
