Final year project
Ano - Smell training for sufferers of Anosmia. [Read more]
Ano is a device that streamlines the smell training process, allowing sufferers of anosmia to recover their sense of smell. Ano delivers four different essential oils to the user, stimulating the olfactory nerve and promoting recovery. Ano delivers the oils in a misted formula and is inhaled by the user.
The descending and fading ridges on the back of the design have been added to increase the desirability and tactile feel of the design. The top part has been kept transparent to give a striking aesthetic and to allow the user to see the hints of the mechanical insides of the design.
Ano works using replaceable oil mixture cartridges, allowing customization and maintenance of the product. The internal part is spring-loaded and pops out from the external body using the eject button.
Each cartridge contains an ultrasonic misting plate that converts the mixture of oil and water into a fine mist. The mist then travels up the communal chimney shared by all the cartridges. The fan at the top of the design then pulls the mist up and out to the user. This shared chimney system is the most complex part of the design and required a lot of proof of concept testing before the design was finalized.
Ano has been designed to be portable and ergonomic. The large band across the back of the design allows for comfortable use for all users. The form of the product was carefully considered and iterated to get the in-hand feel ideal for the users.
This image shows Ano in hand. The process of smell training with Ano is as simple as turning it on with the power button and lifting it to your nose. You are then guided through the smell training process with the light and the app. The internal removal is also detailed in this image, the internal removal allows for cartridge changes and device charging.
Derma is a facial cleanser brush that adjusts its settings to suit the user's gender, age, and skin type. This was designed as part of a Live Project brief over ten days.
Derma In use
Derma is seen in hand and in use in this photo. Derma has been designed with a screen on the back to guide and direct users through the cleansing process. This is done by the user looking in the mirror for instructions and feedback from the device.
I am an optimistic and thoughtful designer with a focus toward 3D styling and user experience.
Projects Ano and Demra are the culmination of four years of hard work, learning, and practice. Over the course of my degree, I have massively developed both my technical and creative abilities. Gaining technical skills in 3D modelling and the presentation of work has allowed me to express my ideas clearly and in detail. The creativity of my design concepts has improved from an understanding of the user, environment, and their needs. I am interested in exploring the design world further and expand into areas such as UX, branding, and manufacture. I am excited about the future and hope to develop my skills further in a multidisciplinary team of designers.
