This week I was fortunate enough to become a finalist in the adIdeas NewStar awards!
It was all pretty exciting as I got to stand on stage with the other finalists during the second day of the three day conference.
It was great to get along and listen to some inspiring designers and artists. I even got one of my designs published in the big adIdeas book. My speaker design is from late 2012, based on muscle structure to inspire the user while they are exercising.
Lumen II Prototype on display the Design Decoration Sydney as part of The Edge.
We where lucky to get our prototype ready in time for the show. Pretty happy with it over all, but there are some things that we want to change.
Laser cut Aluminium, 3D Printed Joints, Tridonic LED and acrylic diffuser.
Joint project with Rowan Turnham
Lumen Pendant Light re-design.
After completing the first pendant we decided we wanted to make the light easier to assemble, larger and change the light source. We used a Tridonic LED as our light source and a frosted acrylic diffuser to make the light less harsh.
We decided we would 3D print small joints to hold the Plywood and Aluminium fins together.
Here are some quick SolidWorks renders.
Joint Project with Rowan Turnham.
1980’s themed “Giant Evil Gods” Logo.
I’m obsessed with facets at the moment, and a lot of 80’s design is sharp and angular.
When my friend talked to me about a film idea he had that would be set in a 1980’s perspective of the future, I couldn’t resist having a play. Pretty happy how it came out.

Interaction Design major project.
The project theme was Smart Health or eHealth for aged people to help them live independently. I decided to design a prescription medication dispenser that reminded the user when to take their medication. Similar products existed, but none of them dispensed the pill. They where only reminding devices.
My solution is the Med-e-Gear. Using a gear and ratchet system, it records when the user takes their medication. Prior to use, the users prescription data is programmed into the device. It holds one type of prescription medication. It dispenses one pill at at a time when the user turns the gear.
