Paired with a mobile app, Neo gathers insights into your phone use habits and suggests a daily screen time limit. Through using your phone, you drain your screen time.

Entrepreneurship & small business planning: PODSTOP

As part of a business module assignment, we had to come up with an idea and create a business plan to pitch to investors. Our proposition was PODSTOP. With a unique system that allows users to book and access their pod with their phone, PODSTOP offers a streamlined accommodation service like no other. I was the teams Chief Design Officer and oversaw all the design and innovation aspects of the company, including graphic and user experience design.

Sam Lyne

I am a well-rounded designer who enjoys those 'Ah-Ha' moments driven by user-centred research. I like to solve problems and design products that make a difference.

My placement year in California taught me a great deal, I finished my year in San Franciso where I discovered my passion for UX design. It fitted perfectly with my Ergonomics background and I wish to pursue a career in UX.

My work this year has been highly rewarding, working alongside local Search & Rescue dog teams to understand what they do and help them to do it more efficiently. This has been a great experience, possibly due to the amazing dogs I got to work with at the weekends.
