P&G Innovation Competition - Winner
Product Design and Innovation
In January 2019 I was selected to participate in a competition organised by the research and development team at P&G. I worked within small team to come up with a product concept to complement one of their brands. With 3 other students from EIE, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, we develop a toothbrush which would clean all your teeth simultaneously in 15 seconds. Working with students from different disciplines and receiving feedback from P&G’s engineers was an fantastic experience.
Grantham Institute - Sustainable Water Bottle Design - Winner
We were challenged to design and develop a new and environmentally sustainable water bottle as well as the brand for it. I worked with a colleague to create a bottle which would tessellate to maximise transport efficiency. We also created a brand targeted towards university students and the iconic shape of the hexagonal bottle.
Dyson School of Design Engineering Desire Award - Finalist
Packaging has a very large impact on the environment for something that is only used once, especially if it contains plastic. Billions of shampoo sachets are used every year globally and the majority of them find their way into the oceans. To tackle this problem I developed a sachet using a polymer made from seaweed which dissolves in the water once used. This means that instead of plastic sachets finding their way back into the sea only seaweed ones do. For this design concept and prototype I was a finalist in the prestigious Desire Award at Imperial College London.
