What drives me to work in design is being at the forefront of change, be this environmental change or making positive changes in people’s everyday lives.
Redefining the Future of Cosmetics.
CAPSULE is a smart make-up printer that is designed to transform the traditional cosmetic counter experience.
The in-store smart mirror, seamlessly integrates technology and beauty. It has an intelligent mirror that provides a personalised and immersive experience, empowering consumers to make informed choices and embrace environmentally responsible decisions when it comes to purchasing cosmetics.
Each brand features a smart mirror device integrated with a personalised refill system. Consumers interact with the smart mirror to select their desired cosmetic product, shade, and volume, effectively reducing wastage from unsuccessful purchases. Through a simple tap of their loyalty card, a drawer opens, enabling them to place in a clean refill pod. The device then dispenses the un-pigmented product along with a personalised pigment blend into the pod. This process utilises peristaltic motors and magnetic vibrations to ensure distribution and even mixing within the pod so the product is ready for the consumer to take home.
Consumers are provided with a reusable palette that houses their refill pods, which are made from medical-grade silicone. After a pod is filled in-store, users can place them in their palette, take them home, and conveniently use the product. When empty, the pods can be washed out and sterilised by boiling them in water. This ensures a hygienic and reusable solution for the consumers.
In-store, during the printing process, the mixing capsule is applied to the refill pod. The incorporation of mixing capsules serves multiple purposes, enhancing the overall user experience. Firstly, it guarantees precise and consistent colour blending, resulting in high-quality custom cosmetics. Additionally, the mixing capsules serve as a visual indicator, allowing users to easily track their product usage as the level of the product gradually decreases. This visual cue provides valuable feedback and helps users determine when they are running low on their preferred cosmetic. It also encourages participation in the loyalty program, where consumers collect and return the mixing capsules. This create a sense of engagement and rewards customers for their eco-conscious actions.
Nutrix the Plant Nanny: A simple device designed to water house plants automatically when owners are away, ensuring their plants’ longevity. With convenient app control, users can activate the devices and monitor the pH and moisture status of each plant in real time. Nutrix empowers owners to care for their plants remotely, providing peace of mind and promoting healthy, thriving indoor gardens.
Personal Branding: I challenged myself to create my own distinctive personal branding that truly represents me as a designer. My goal was to develop a brand identity that could seamlessly integrate into my CV and portfolio, reflecting my unique style and can become an integral part of my professional journey.
S/soul a discreet insole designed to enhance the concert experience for the D/deaf community through the power of vibrations. The device, designed to fit into the Bang & Olufsen range, connects via Bluetooth to the B&O app. S/soul delivers vibrational feedback that syncs with the music, allowing users to feel the rhythm and energy of live performances. This device aims to bridge the gap between music and the D/deaf community, providing an immersive and inclusive concert experience.
During my placement year, I had the opportunity to work with Quadrant2Design, a sustainable exhibition stand company.
As a junior CAD designer on the design team, my role was to design the layouts of modular stands for various companies to showcase at trade shows. I utilised my skills to create captivating visuals, animations and plans to effectively present design concepts to clients.
This experience not only honed my CAD design abilities but also allowed me to contribute to sustainable practices within the exhibition industry.
