Final year project
ZERO - Reducing single use plastic in mainstream supermarkets [Read more]
ZERO is an upgrade to the standard shopping cart which creates a convenient, intuitive and exciting zero waste shopping experience in mainstream supermarkets. The product tackles the major pain point of weighing produce and the lack of hygiene associated with shopping zero waste.
The main pod unit is detachable from the rest of the cart for easy cleaning, product charging, and security.
This exploded view shows how the product is constructed, the internals, and DFM considerations.
In order to deliver an engaging and exciting user experience, the UI design was a central part of the project.
Throughout the project, I went through many iterations of prototyping, which eventually resulted in detailed 3D prints. These allowed me to thoroughly test my product using methods like body storming.
The product's weighing surface allows the device to weigh produce dispensed into reusable containers. The product uses RFID technology to recognise the containers and their contents.
The product also allows you to scan pre-packaged produce as part of its scan as you go shopping experience.
This render shows you the underside of the pod, which allows it to attach to the handlebar unit.
I am driven and excited at the prospect of improving the user experiences of physical products, digital products, and services through understanding user needs, innovation, and iterative prototyping.
I am a passionate, hardworking designer who is keen to continue to learn and develop my skills as I move into a career in design. My main skills are, empathising with user needs, working in a team to formulate solutions, and iterative prototyping using a range of methods.
I now hope to continue to develop as a designer in a creative, exciting, collaborative work environment, with other designers who share my passion and will help me to achieve my full potential.

Junior UX designer - Bosch
I worked in Bosch's head office in Stuttgart, Germany, as part of the UX team. I was involved in a range of internal and external design projects, which I would often follow from the initial research stage, conducting, journey maps and personas, to ideation, wireframing, and high-fidelity prototypes. I was also involved in testing these prototypes with users located all over the world, and implementing feedback gathered as the design changes. This was a great experience and developed my ability to understand user needs, work in an international, multi-disciplinary team, and foster my creativity. Working and living in Germany also helped develop me as an individual and I feel I came out of the experience a more confident and self aware individual.
3D design intern - Liganova
Liganova is a brand retail company located in Stuttgart, Germany that works with many high-end companies creating unique, imaginative, and engaging brand experiences. I was mainly involved in the Nespresso team creating 3D, in-store assets, which would be manufactured by their sister production company. Unfortunately due to the outbreak of Covid-19 I was forced to return home and the placement was cut short.
