Final year project
Automatic timing system for Rowing races and other water sports
Regatta Line - Final Year Design Practice
An automatic race start/ finish system for Rowing and other water sports. Currently, 96% of all UK Regattas and Head Races take place on our rivers and canals. Of these races, all are timed using stopwatches and pieces of paper or third party timing apps. The Regatta Line timing system provides organisers with an automatic, cost effective, and interactive way of timing races. Using this system will set the standard for race timing making racing faster, closer and therefore more enjoyable to watch.
AeroPress Coffee Machine - Applications of Mechanics and Electronics for Design
A twelve-week group project, using skills gained from parts A,B and C to design and manufacture a fully functioning coffee machine utilising the AeroPress coffee press and electronic embedded systems. Complete with auto water delivery, temperature control and multiple safety mechanisms.
TRAC - Year 2 Design Practice
TRAC is a stick-on wearable for team athletes that is worn under the chest. TRAC allows elite athletes to analyse their heart rate, sleep cycles and in-game performance whilst only having to reapply the device weekly with a strong medical grade adhesive.
Prototyping for Design - 1. Ergonomic and 2. Functional prototypes
1. A 3D printed ergonomic model was made to test different handle combinations and controller tether range. User testing was conducted during a live regatta proving the unobtrusive nature of the camera system. 2. A fully functional, QR Code reading, camera interface was designed and programmed on a Raspberry Pi. The housing allowed the prototype to be powered directly from an embedded battery pack with a 7 inch touch-screen display mounted on top. A simple user interface and various python scripts provide full evidence of functionality and user interaction.
Live Projects - Moss, Small space living
Designed in 7 days, Moss is a system of products that work together to dehumidify and purify air in small space living environments. User research showed a need to virtually separate the different living areas, the most important being the cooking and living. Moss utilises GM moss, algae and UV light as a natural biological filter for the home with easy maintenance and silent operation.
Design Week - Freesian, Smart Bathroom
Freesian towel rail and dehumidifier system uses AI to learn showering routines to manage the levels of humidity in private bathrooms and prepares hot towels for the user when they are needed. An efficient, artistic installation for the high-end market.
Loughborough Design School provided me with the tools to realise my potential as a designer. I know what it means to work hard at something whilst having the poise to implement creative thinking in a pressured environment.
My work has always reflected my passions, opinions and motivations. I have always been an all rounder throughout my education and I'm really looking forward to specialising in a design team with big ideas and ambitions.
'19 Diploma in Professional Studies
May 2017 - May 2018
I gained a 12 month placement at ESP Fitness, a world leading manufacturer of Functional Fitness equipment. Within the role of 3D concept designer I had direct contact with clients and was mostly involved in designing the layout of facilities and producing visuals of new concepts and products.
