Project:
Development of a new metered dose inhaler design.

Key Skills Developed:
- Sketching, foam modelling, presentation skills, CDRS rendering and surfacing skills;
- Working within a large project team, liaising with different disciplines, effective communication between team members.

Role:
- A key part of the initial brainstorms that produced the key business opportunity definition; - Within the design process, providing creative ideation, handling and styling concepts;
- Preparing client presentations;
- Mechanism development for drug delivery and dose counting, and ongoing liaison with engineering team.

Process:
- My first contribution to this project was some concept work that persuaded the client that, instead of some cosmetic redesign, what they needed was a full redesign of the entire product.
- A kickoff meeting was held, including a full brainstorm with the client. Further concept generation and development created six discreet product concepts from the hundreds of ideas generated. CDRS and foam models were used extensively as rapid visualisation techniques.
- In the detailed design phase I worked closely with a team of mechanical engineers and drug delivery experts to produce the final layout, part and mechanism design to prepare the two selected concepts for testing and focus groups.

Outcome:
- The selected product is now beginning a phase of clinical trials before being brought to market.
