Alarmclock: an improved user-experience
Alarmclock is a multi-functional product to encourage weekly fire alarm testing through behaviour change and PDLC technology.
Alarmclock: Enjoyable maintenance
User centred product design and packaging have ensured easy installation and maintenance.
Alarmclock: Testing the Alarm
Encouraged weekly testing is enjoyable and satisfying as opposed to unpleasant and inaccessible.
The PDLC technology increases the opacity of the glass every 7th day, prompting the user to test the alarm which simultaneously clears the glass.

I am a motivated and diligent individual who is driven by creating products, services and systems of social value, positive environmental impact and longevity.
Spending my placement year at IBM as a user experience designer on their Blockchain offering has taught me a wealth of skills across the entire design process. Collaborative, insight-driven design has led me to an iterative and social way of working. I have a comprehensive understanding of Design Thinking and experience in large multi-disciplinary teams within a corporate setting. I am familiar with facilitating Hack-days and UX methodology-led workshops across a broad spectrum of industries with a focus on arriving at MVPs levering pioneering technologies. Having kickstarted my career in the software industry, I look forward to expanding my current skill set. I am particularly interested in applying nascent technologies to real-world problems.
