Working with the Braun product design team, I contributed to the UX and visual design of a variety of digital and analogue clocks and watches including a Bluetooth connected bedside clock. Designed for smarphone users, it includes usb charging and an app that enables easy customization of alarm schedules, tones and other features.
With an increasing interest in apps and connected devices, I helped adapt Braun’s new product design language to the screen. Following Dieter Rams’ 10 Principles of Good Design, we strove to ensure our screen design language would be highly aesthetic while having clear functionality. Like Braun's hardware, we kept the design clean with all visual elements serving a purpose and used colour sparingly to indicate important functionality. Several apps were designed as prototypes, but never released.
With both indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity sensors, our goal was to create a weather station that would present the most relevant information in the clearest way. Competing products presented all information at the same, making them cluttered and diffifcult to read. We designed a display with multiple areas and coresponding hardware buttons allowing the user to cycle through time, alarm modes, and indoor or outdoor temperature or humidity, personalizing the device to their specific interests.
Based on a concept from students of the University of Wuppertal, the Style Me app uses augmented reality to allow users to preview dozens of beard styles in realtime. Collaborating with a dev and design team in Berlin and an AR company in Toronto, an app was created that allowed a user to see how they would look with a variety of beard styles and share them for feedback from friends. Once the user has grown out their beard, the app helps them shave their chosen style with realtime AR guidance, tips and techniques.
