Vivo Vacuum Cleaner
The lightweight design enables frequent, short vacuuming session, improving user independence. The dock acts as a charger for the cordless vacuum and deposit for the dust, streamlining the user experience.

Uni buddy improves the experience of starting university by engaging new students before they start, helping them through physical, emotional and social steps to make their experience as comfortable as possible. Uni buddy tailors this experience through machine learning, providing relevant information and better opportunities to make more meaningful connections.
Uni Buddy App
Uni Buddy builds a profile of the user based on their personality preferences and interests to tailor content, event and society recommendations and friend suggestions to increase chances of finding people who are similar and make valuable relationships.
Uni Buddy Device
Questions, thoughts and anxieties can occur at any time. The device can be used as a spontaneous outlet rather than having to go through the app or an internet browser to find information or hold onto thoughts and worries. Users can chat with Uni Buddy AI to work through thoughts and feelings, helping them understand why they feel that way and how they can overcome it.
Cleaning at home is a major threat to aging in place for older people with arthritis. This vacuum cleaner aims to provide a comfortable, manageable experience for home cleaning, reducing load and strain whilst enabling effective cleaning through a more ergonomic user interaction.
During my time at a design consultancy, I managed multiple design projects, personally directing them to innovative solutions through the use of sketching, CAD and prototyping, whilst opening up lines of designer-client/manufacturer communication and exploiting team working skills. I enriched our service offerings through developing my graphic design competence, with this translating into freelance branding and identity design, exposing me to different clientele and improving communication and business organisation skills. I look forward to developing myself as a designer, building on established skills and experiences and developing new ones.
