About me

I am a young Industrial Designer who is passionate about making products inclusive to all communities. I have a hearing loss and I wear two Cochlear Implants on each ear. My disabilty has lead me to studying Industrial Design and majoring in Digital Innovation.

 

DESIGN SKILLS

k

UX Design

User experience design is the process designers use to build products that provide great experiences to their users. UX design refers to feelings and emotions users experience when interacting with a product.

Brand Identity

Brand identity attracts new customers to a brand while making existing customers feel at home. Brand identity includes logos, typography, colours, packaging, and messaging, and it complements and reinforces the existing reputation of a brand.

Packaging Design

Packaging designs need to capture attention from the shelf, but once they draw customers in, your product needs to hold their interest. Also, packaging design is significant in the design process.

Market Research

Marketing is highly important because understanding the customers’s needs and wants needs to be considered in the design process. The whole purpose of creating a product is for the target audience and situation.

Prototypes

I enjoy making prototypes and understanding how my ideas on sketch is produced through 3D models. Making prototypes is important because it helps find the issues and save time without wasting money and time.

Sustainable Materials

Sustainable materials is very important in the design process because in the circular economy, material waste has increased and the waste ends up in landfill. Therefore, creating sustainable products helps close the loop in circular economy.

Digital Design

Technology has evolves into our daily lives and it has become another way of creating products, advertising products and connecting with the world. In digital design, I can create apps such as ‘Augmented Reality’, websites, digital marketing, and online advertisements. These skills are important because creating products needs to be versatile to online and in person.

software experience

Photoshop/Illustrator

Able to use these skills to create conceptual designs, logos, packaging layout and more.

Solidworks

This skill is great way to demonstrate the 3D model of my designs and create prototypes by using 3D printer.

Archicad

This program is used to create houses and this program is perfect for displaying products in a house setting.

After Effects

A great program to create motion films and 3D graphics motion for logos and websites.

Unreal Engine

A great way of using 3D modelling from Archicad and Solidworks to create Augmented reality and VR to advertise the designs.

iMovie/Premier Pro

To demonstrate products and prototypes that I have created and use for editing for graphic motion clips.
