Final year project
Creating an effective drying solution for martial arts kimonos.
The design aims to be a functional addition in every martial artist's home. Using a combination of dehumidifier and air circulation technology the overall drying time was halved.
Creating a product which embodies the martial arts lifestyle was critical to the success of this project. Through sketching, many iterations were generated to produce an empathic and sculptural design.
During placement, I was tasked with recording and translating the traditional construction process. This was achieved by producing a detailed and informative CAD drawing alongside the updated McDonald's branding.
Creating a design solution which is both unique and effective is at the heart of my design work. Drawing influence from all around me, to create products which are not only aesthetically pleasing but understood and appreciated by the target user.
Throughout my time at Loughborough University I have been able to learn, practice and develop some key skills and attributes. My passion within design is concept generation, ideation and illustration. University has also given me the opportunity to experience a wide range of cultures and activities, which has impacted me as a person and a designer greatly. During placement I had the opportunity to not only develop my design skills but also to further my knowledge of how my designs are made. Through working as a site manager on 2 major projects, I was able to increase my understanding product manufacturing and of the construction industry. It also gave me the opportunity to to apply and develop my communication, organisation and leadership skills.
