As a project I did at Massey University I created a typographic brand identity for the university's exposure graduate exhibition. The project included creating a trio of posters for advertising, a booklet that would be handed out during the event, and a fold out calendar.
As part of a project I did for an industrial design elective at Massey University, we were tasked with designing a home espresso machine. Rather than simply make a good looking typical machine, I decided to focus on the usability of home espresso machines to see where their designs could be improved for ease of use, and sustainability. This project is currently a finalist in the best awards. ☕️
My WWDC 2019 Swift playgrounds submission demonstrates an interactive storybook – my Pepeha. Pepeha is a way of introducing yourself in Māori – the indigenous people of my homeland New Zealand. It tells people who you are by sharing your connections with the people and places that are important to you. I thought it would be nice to share some of New Zealand with Apple, so I wanted to illustrate our native flora and fauna such as the Fern, Kowhai, Pohutukawa, Harakeke (flax) and the Cabbage tree, along with birdsong from our native birds, like Tui, Kereru, and Fantail. 🌱
For the longest time I wanted a Boosted Board – however, there were a couple flaws for me. They were too big to take on the bus, and too expensive for my student lifestyle. So as any nerd would do, I built my own. I figured out the specs I wanted my board to have, and put it together for my final year project at high school. I learnt so much about battery management, lithium ion cell technology, the UX of wireless controllers, motor ratings and much much more. Say hi if you see my riding around Wellington! 👋
