Introducing my Nike ‘Nukiashi’ design concept.
The name comes from my time training in Ninpo Taijitsu or Ninjutsu as it’s more commonly known. Nukiashi roughly translates as silent/stealthy footsteps and is part of a larger system of ‘onshinjutsu’ or shadow body arts / disappearing arts. Inspiration also came from my favourite Nike silhouettes, most notably the sock dart and Komyuter.

‘Off the wall’ cooking.
The two common aspects of cooking in urban asia are the use of a Hob and a micro space to work in. Unlike permanent bulky gas/conduction hobs, the vertical design can be neatly stowed away onto the wall. This leaves valuable worktop space available for other cooking activities.
The little sink that makes a big difference.
The Air Sink maximises space in small-apartments by doing away with the need of a draining board. Two faucets swing effortlessly away from the wall and over the sink, one delivering hot or cold water, the other supplying a jet of air that instantly dries the crockery. This does away with the need of a dishcloth and space-hungry draining board.
You move - they don’t.
Triathlon specific eyewear designed for the yearly D&AD student competition
A simple design that does away with the complication of hinges. Regular hinged glasses can fold shut in the rush from swim to bike. This can cause athletes to loose valuable seconds. The absence of hinges also mean that athletes do not have to worry about a tight fit.
My Submission to the concept surgeon footwear design competition. The brief required the imagining of three ingredients; Hender Scheme leather, ACRONYM technical design language and the adidas EQT Boost sole.
Taking visual cues from tactical police footwear, the concept blends a range of technical elements with a modern slimline aesthetic to create a new and utilitarian silhouette.
Subtle detail's of Hender Scheme's leather help to convey a juxtaposition of both craft & mass manufacture.
The brand (and camera) that brings people together.
The brief: design a camera for the Virgin Atlantic brand.
The Virgin Atlantic brand has a younger more sociable perception than it’s rivals. What if a branded camera could mimic this sociability and help bring people together? The Reflect design has a large reflective surface on the face of the camera. This, along with the slim easy-to-hold profile, makes it the ideal camera for ‘selfie’ lovers.
The fitness gadget market is cluttered with products that aim to motivate users with irrelevant / inapplicable data. What if the data was removed altogether? What if a more human and motivating form of feedback was given?
Research indicates that seeing physical body change during a fitness regime is by far the most motivating factor in continuing on.
My silhouette design pre-empts the visible change one would see by using a real time application.
‘silhouette’ is an app and wrist band that encourages body-shaping exercise by visually representing progress in real time. Information recorded via a wristband during exercise is translated, and then displayed, on a smart device as iconic triangular symbols representing body shape. Exercise measured at a high heart rate (in the burn) is signified by a green triangle. Not hitting desired heart rate, is displayed by a red inverted triangle. The aim is to get these triangles (and your body shape) to move into a more desirable silhouette.
The app is set as a real time home screen, providing a constant reminder of ones progress or lack of.
Concept for a blade like bathroom faucet. The idea was to make something minimal yet visually disruptive in the highly formulaic bathroom faucet archetype.
