As an Industrial Design Engineering bachelor degree graduate I have been able to explore all aspects of the design process. Sustainability and exclusivity have always been key components to the projects that I have carried out throughout my studies. Visibility has been a recurrent theme across multiple projects. As part of a group project we have developed a system that was designed to help visually impaired individuals cross roads safely through haptic feedback in traffic lights. It was presented at the Dutch Design week in 2018 and at the University of Liverpool. My latest project applies visibility in a completely different context:; protecting our oceans. This sustainability centered solution has allowed me to gather extensive research into fields that were new to me. I was able to connect with professors and experts who had studied this area for years. Being able to combine this research into a working prototype was challenging yet incredibly fulfilling. This has opened my eyes to the aspects of design that suit me and helped me understand which parts I want to carry through to my future endeavors.
