Hi! I'm a curious, enthustiastic and thorough designer, always looking for how to improve the world around me. My experience so far has given me particular interest in design for manufacture, human factors and sustainability, for PPE and home appliances.

Final Project


The Sustainable Alternative to Disposable Face Masks

Specifically designed for the Chinese market, Liútōng is a more breathable, comfortable and sustainable face mask compared to disposable face masks.

Super Breathable

Pleated filter material and an exhale valve make breathing in Liútōng a breeze.

Perfect for Glasses

The adjustable EVA ear loops and face seal mean Liútōng nevers pulls off or steams up glasses.

Designed for Asian Faces

Testing of 3D printed iterations of the face seal with Asian students ensured a perfect facial fit.

Optimised for Manufacture

Silicone casting guaranteed that even the most complex geometries could be injection moulded or overmoulded for mass manufacture.

Totally Circular

The sourcing and end of life of every component has been considered to ensure nothing ends up in landfill.
