Hello, I'm Eleni, a passionate product designer committed to creating innovative solutions. Here is some of my work, enjoy!

Final Project

Hocus Focus

Hocus Focus helps people build habits by taking care of a living plant. The plant grows on the product according to the users’ adherence to their habit, showing them some progress when it is too early to see the results of their efforts otherwise.

Hydroponic Self-Watering System

Hocus Focus uses a hydroponic system to water the seeds that grow on the surface of the product as the user adheres to their habit.

Context of Use

Hocus Focus aims to help anyone who needs help building a habit. It was designed with plant lovers in mind and tested and developed with young adults.

Plant the seeds of habit and watch the magic unfold…

Setting up the Product

Place Seed Strips

Six replaceable strips, that encase the user’s preferred seeds, are fitted all around the surface at the beginning of the habit cycle.

Fill with Water

The ergonomic lid is unscrewed and the user fills the product with water up to the fill line.

Set Preferences in App

The product is paired with the Hocus Focus app where the user will be able to see their progress more analytically. The user sets preferences of time and type of reminders, etc.

Journey to the Show

In this project, I was able to apply the knowledge and skills acquired throughout my degree. From researching market opportunities, user needs and wants, to developing solutions through ideating, prototyping and user testing.
