A Time-keeping Assistant that helps busy professionals keep track of their schedule while they are in their office.
Prompt: Design a time-keeping product that embodies the Dyson brand design language.
Today most people in the office use the traditional or digital clock to keep track of time. Regardless of the abundant amount of clocks, busy professionals still loose track of time and find themselves in need of an assistant. This can result in the company losing money to hire another person or the professional waiting forever before they get help.
Great assistants like the amazon echo and google home can be found in modern office today and definitely help the the office run efficiently.
However the absence of a visual display is one less factor and overall cost of the product leaves these products lacking.
She is a busy office professional who constantly loses track of the time and is dire need of an assistant.
Her company can't afford to hire someone to help her, so she has a hard time keeping her schedule on track.
Design a time keeping product that embodies the Dyson brand, has a visual aspect for the user and utilizes the already existing technology of smart assistants.
The concept journey
I began sketching many ideas with specific features and then focused more on the certain design aspects that received positive feedback.
Refining the idea
When I finally decided the functions and features of the clock and had to make a decision between my top 2 iterations.
Once I got feedback on the sketches I started to hone in on the best concept and iterated off that idea.
sync with phone
colored light notifications
blue accent on the inner ring
I built some initial mock ups but soon started to focus on the smaller details of my clock.
Battery compartment size on the clock was an interesting challenge.
I put a slight chamfer on the inner part of the rings.
Placing the speaker at the bottom of the clock was ideal for sound travel.
