I was lucky to work with Beyond Twenty Ltd for about a year between 2016 and 2017. They are a London based tech startup housing a highly talented team of Designers, Product Designers, Engineers, Marketing and Retail Heads. They are involved with the design of Ayr, a smart connected vaporiser launching soon:
"...working with leading technologists and designers to create the world’s first truly smart vaporiser; one that would automatically refill and recharge itself. A product that could capture the moments that delight smokers and respect the lifestyle they enjoy."
Areas I covered: concept, responsive design, app design, prototyping, showcasing the product and its state of the art technology. Using 3D models, video and more to explore cinematic and parallax animation sequences.
Using 3D tools in Illustrator, I created an extensive range of packaging concepts and white samples for in-house testing. Liaising with legal, to align with TPD regulations to promote product safety, and print specialists on CMYK and Pantone selection, materials, finishes and print feasibility.
TASKS: Branding, Graphics, Packaging, Responsive + MOBILE Design in Sketch, InVision Prototyping, PHOTOGRAPHY + Photo Retouching, Stakeholder Presentations, Worked with Agile, Jira + Confluence.
A make shift studio was setup to create bespoke images, using our own pretty hands to model the device! I later processed the images for a clean and hyperreal look. An extensive range of graphics were explored and these represented up to 10 flavours along with bespoke patterns inspired by the Bauhaus movement (created in Photoshop and Illustrator). The objective was to create graphics that were vibrant, bold and own-able with hints of texture and simplicity of form and shape. Examples are previewed across this page, and finalised versions were later used across web, social media and other material.
