Kinector is a wearable device that is inspired by our research conducted around the relationship between patients and physical therapists. Kintector aims to build a connection and creating as many intersection points between patients and physical therapists as well as putting as much information as possible into the patients' hands.
As a team we created Ashbury with inspiration taken from an original typeface found in Oakland, CA. We began by creating our control letters and later matching our future letterforms. After many detailed critique sessions, we finalized our typeface. The large bowls, short descenders and cap height made the font funky and unique. Our final poster design was inspired by the center of hippie counter culture, Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco, CA.
The Grind is a pop-up coffee shop and exhibition on sex aimed at giving college students a newer, more inclusive and positive take on sexual education. Using the metaphor that safe and consensual sex is as easy as ordering coffee, we created a comfortable and conversational space covering subjects from consent to masturbation.
Homeo is a multi-interfaced system aimed at helping reduce energy and water consumption in the household.
The application tracks utility usage for a week, identifying habits and use fluctuations, and afterward proposes realistic goals to meet (ex. minimize spending by 15%).
This one-size-fits-all approach gives more autonomy over the process and helps people save energy and money. A standardized measurement would feel too constricting.
Usage is represented as a fluctuation from an ideal use rate, so there's always complete clarity of how you're doing. Organisms regulate temperature and nutrient levels through the process of homeostasis – maintenance of an ideal balance; we figured, so too could the home.
The interfaces are a mobile app, and mountable displays called “Receptors” that show current usage for targeted, problem-area appliances.
