Minsu - The comprehensive Type 1 Diabetes device for children
There are currently many issues surrounding adherence to treatment for type 1 Diabetics, specifically in children. Minsu helps children reliably take over their own treatment by packing everything a Type 1 Diabetic would need in a day into one comprehensive device. The product combats pain and needle phobia by using tested pain reducing technology, as well as including reminders to follow the correct procedures and maintain good technique. Parents can keep an eye on their child's adherence through the paired app, giving the child more freedom
Minsu - Separate Devices
The pain-reducing injection pen, the storage device, and the lancing enabled blood glucose monitor
Minsu - Devices Functionalities
The storage compartment - containing enough needles, lancets and strips for a day worth of testing and treatment.
The lancing enabled blood glucose monitor - The push to lance side of the device pricks the user's finger. On the other side, the blood glucose monitor tests blood glucose level.
The pain-reducing injection pen - a pain-reducing textured surface pops out when Minsu is taken apart. As the dose is dialled up the vibration and an indicative LED turns on. When the does button is pressed the light flashes for 10 seconds before turning green, indicating for the user to remove it.
Minsu - Storyboard
The storyboard shows the user interactions, and the individual devices additional functionalities which aid adherence.

Light Weights - Final Year Live Project
Focusing on the brief set by DCA we had one week to research, develop and visualise a product that can enhance fitness by blending into the home. Using MADE as brand inspiration I created Light Weights, a full weight-set hidden in a lamp.
Light Weights - Accessing Weights
The barbell is removed from the stem of the lamp, while the dumbbells unclip from the removable tabletop. The weight plates make up the base of the table, sliding off the end bar

I aim to achieve functional, user centred design, drastically improving user experience pushing the boundaries of reality to solve real world problems.
As a product designer, I have a wide breadth of skills from programming and mechanics, to form and aesthetic development. I believe a multidisciplinary approach to finding design solutions is what leads to a user centred, effective, and desirable designs. Diversity within a design is what I find makes the process enjoyable. I thrive in demanding situations, enjoy learning new skills and solving design challenges.

'21 Diploma of Professional Studies
Sand & Birch Studio, Latina, Italy
We consulted on a number of projects in the film and leather industries. I spent a large portion of my time on a leather project, predominantly based around furniture design. In addition, I did a diverse range of consultancy work, ranging from graphic and animation design to product design and prototyping. An important component of this role was improving and developing existing products.
Studio Stallinga, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
I participated in multiple live projects. Initially, I worked on the lights the studio produce for installations and gallery exhibitions, learning to properly produce each of the light assemblies, as well as install them. Alongside this I worked on presentations for various proposals, rendering and photo-shopping images to present the lights to clients.
