Final year project
Retrofit 3D body measuring system, to improve online fast-fashion size selection.
Pleat - a 3D Body Measuring System.
Pleat is 3D body measuring system to improve online fast-fashion size selection.
Pleat - Turntable
When measured within a store's physical location, users are slowly rotated on the turntable, allowing the scanning system to record their measurements. By allowing users to only view clothes that fit them exactly, the system increases customer satisfaction, as well as reducing returns.
Pleat - Installed in a Changing Room
Traditional retailers can bridge the gap between online and physical sales. Encouraging customers to engage with both platforms.
Loneliness experienced by young people in cities presents a unique and poignant problem. Often experienced within the confines of dorm rooms, it can be characterised as a shrinking away from the outside. Together House aims to combat this by encouraging adventure and teamwork within individuals.
Together House - Detail
Acting as an anitdote to Loneliness, Together House is located away from the city. Based on user interests, it brings young people together to encounter adventure. Following instructions and tasks from a companion app, users venture collectively, travelling to the remote location of the House.
Together House - Interior
The interior space is optimised to encourage warm conversation, allowing users to come out of themselves in order to promote growth and self development.
'Dream Catcher,' is a conceptual project, aiming to visualise a user's night sleep. Twenty-seven years of our lives are spent asleep. This wall mounted device, displays the previous night's sleep in the form of data driven artwork, using neural networks to composite together user activity.
Dream Catcher - Detail
Sensors monitor the user, compositing together a visual representation of their night's sleep. The information forms a distinct piece of data driven artwork in an effort to re-examine user's relationship with sleep and themselves.
With 37% of returns occurring because of sizing issues, online shoppers are finding it increasingly difficult to buy suitably fitting garments online. Using omni-channel methods, 'Pleat,' the 3D body scanning system provides a way for users to confidently browse clothes online. The system increases customer satisfaction whilst reducing online shopping associated returns.
James is diligent and conscientious, responding especially well to creative challenges. Having developed an interest in user needs and aesthetics, he hopes to continue engaging in problem solving and further develop as a designer.
