FYDP - Maintenance
1 in 3 find reliability negatively affects the experience of owning a classic car. The purpose of this system is to make the maintenance of a classic car understandable and logical, resulting in more efficient and reliable cars which users can trust. This will allow users to enjoy driving their cars knowing they are in safe hands. Various sensors will measure critical components in the car. If a sensor notices a component exceeds the safe limits it will warn the driver. using the data from the sensors, users will be given accurate diagnostics to the problem allowing the user to fix the issues.
FYDP - Community
The second aspect of this service is the classic car community. With a wide range of users, the data from their cars can be collected, this can be used to give accurate diagnostics based on a range of accumulated data. Furthermore, it allows more like-minded people to connect, sharing their passion for driving by sharing their favourite roads. Additionally, it allows people to help each other by sharing their knowledge and experience on an intuitive platform.
FYDP - Modularity
The modular design of the device allows for a wide range of customisation, this allows users to create a device that reflects their unique cars.
Design Week - Improving Wellbeing
This device uses AR and bone conduction technology to provide runners with a semi-immersive world. The device combines physical exercise with brain training to maximise blood flow to the PCA, which is fundamental for mood. Stimulating their mind as well as their body will have real positive impacts on peoples mental health.
In my spare time, I enjoy creating illustrations and take commissions for animal portraits.
On my second placement, I was tasked with procuring a robot and implementing its use. However, due to COVID-19, I was unable to do so. Therefore, I decided to build my own to demonstrate how it could have been used.
This is a render of a potential bespoke kitchen design for a client.
I take pride in creating innovative solutions to existing problems with well considered, beautiful design.

Simon Leigh Memorial Award for Design.
I spent 8 months working as a junior designer at a kitchen company. Here I spent my time speaking to clients, designing their perfect kitchens. As it was a small company, I was responsible for working on various jobs and projects which helped to improve my project management skills and all-around managerial skills.
I spent 3 months at Prodrive where I was tasked with procuring and implementing a robot into their production. COVID-19, unfortunately, cut the placement short. However, while I was there I was able to refine my communications skills by having various meetings pitching my ideas and research.
